4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with reddish reflexes and coffee-like brownie medium head that goes into nice lacing although when poured again it acts like coca-cola. After a while it becomes completely flat. Aroma is very rich and intriquing, resembles me a good...burger. Sweet-sour sauce based on mustard, white dry wine, light roasted note, brown sugar, light corriander, vanilla, pepper. It is very well .balanced and actually made me quite hungry :-) Taste is malty sweet with spicy sensations on the tongue and bitter finish. Some pepper spices in the aftertaste, very cool. Perfect body for such beer, a bit oily but very smooth, creamy, almost coffee-like or stoutish in this regard. I was afraid about drinkability but it is quite high. A nice surprise, great one for colder evenings.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
W aromacie pomarańcze z goździkami, wędzonka objawiająca się czymś na kształt wędzonej papryki, banan, wanilia, cynamon... Spójny i genialny! W smaku słodkie, sporo mlecznej czekolady, lekko kwaskowe, na finiszu wędzonka, wyraźny posmak musztady i kolendry. Konsystencja kremowa, alkohol dobrze ukryty, wyczuwalny w przelyku. Ciekawostka - warka z konca roku 2012, zdążyło się przez ten czas doskonale ułożyć. Szalone i bardzo smaczne piwo.

This beer tastes wrong but is very good. It is mild at the first glance, but spicy in the aftertaste and reminds with its taste and smell of a greasy fast food shop. Very impressive indeed.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours dark brown with crimson flashes and a small, fragile, off-white head. The nose is both smoky and chocolaty, but I’m not picking up any pastrami-like spices here. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with tingly carbonation. The flavor is too sweet, even for my sweet tooth. It’s loaded with chocolate crčme and winter spices. Lengthy, syrupy finish. No pastrami-like magic here. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!
