popiela (567) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Butelka 0,33l. Z butelki delikatny aromat słodowy, bandaże na granicy autosugestii. Złote, klarowne, obfita piana. Ze szkła aromat niewiele lepszy, bardzo mało się tu dzieje, wyraźniejsze bandaże. W smaku słodowe, trochę karmelu, wodniste, nadal delikatne bandaże. Goryczka niska, nasycenie umiarkowane.

tricksta_p (3610) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is strong sweet malt, caramel, buttery notes and some alcohol. Flavour is unpleasant malty sweetness. Body is medium. I don’t like this at all, overpowering nasty malty sweetness. Onedimensional and unpalatable.

Bottle, 33cl. Deep amber/orange with a frothy tan head. Strong aromas of corn with hints of roasted malt, Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and creamy. Medium sweet corn and malty character into a fiery, dry whisky bitter finish, Disappointing, but pleasant.

0,33l bottle at home thanks to my gf. BB 07/2016. copper / redish clear shiny color, small to medium big white head. smells of cardboard, light sweetness, honey, a bit peppery, spices. not too crazy about the smell. medium body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes caramel, lightly bitter, some citric notes, tobacco, plums, some stale hops / a bit cardboardish again. finishes lightly bitter with peppery notes and some fruity notes. not a fan, drinks a bit harsh.

koshack (1349) - Gdańsk, POLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Ciemnozłote, zmętnione. Piana drobna, biała. Opada do kożuszka na powierzchni. Aromat słaby, lekko słodowy. Trochę nut drewnianych. W smaku wytrawne, lekko goryczkowe. Ale tez słabo. Miało to być piwo wędzone-bardzo słabe. Po ogrzaniu wychodzi więcej nut wędzonych i zwiększa się goryczka. Ale nadal słabe jak na słodzie wędzonym whisky.
