ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, - SEP 20, 2012
355ml bottle. Jet black in the glass with a large, creamy, lasting tan head. Great looking beer. Light malt, roastiness, chocolate, coffee are all here, nothing too strong in any though. Likewise a light hoppy backbone. Taste is a light sweetness with a light bitterness to go with it. Mouthfeel is medium, a little oily and quite flat. The finish is nice, long, moderately bitter slightly astringent and roasty. Prefer them heavier and dryer.

Obfita, sztywna i brązowawa piana cudnie zdobi szklankę, a wydobywające się z niej aromaty rzucają na kolana. Delikatnie czekoladowy, palony aromat stanowi doskonały wstęp do pierwszego łyka, który potwierdza pierwsze odczucia. Zbalansowane piwo, idealnie zakończone przez dość wysoką goryczkę, w smaku palone, ale i lekko kawowe, o niemalże kremowej teksturze.

meszek0009 (6) - - MAY 6, 2016 does not count
W aromacie kawa, wanilia, orzech i lekkie, ziołowe, chmielowe nuty. Bardzo przyjemnie. W smaku jeszcze wyraźniejsza kawa, likier kawowy, piwo jest raczej wytrawne, z wyraźną kwasowością i trochę ściągającą, ziemistą goryczką. Trochę pustawe. Na plus jeszcze trwała, zbita, beżowa piana.
