Zlotta (569) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2015
1 l bottle from De Bierkoning, bottled on 15/9/2015 (three weeks old). Clear, orangeish amber with a medium large, creamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish-malty aroma of raisins, nuts, caramel and brown sugar. Sweetish-malty taste of raisins, caramel, brown sugar and nuts, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy to oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite sweet but with enough hops in the finish. Highly quaffable and quite tasty, well-crafted.

CH-303 (1770) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Appearance: Dark, clear amber. Some light tan head.
Aroma: Malt, not sure much else. Slight yeast?
Taste: Dark malt, toasted. Smooth and easy drinking. Based on my experience I don’t recommend drinking a full bottle of this with an Indian lentils dinner due to enormous gas production. Almost lost a few friends the next day...
Bought: Trade with Erzengel - thanks!, 1000 ml
