Black, strong white head. Jesus, guys, that is simply too much diacetyl to even notice anything else. Flavour ain’t too bad, diacetyl less noticeable, some roastiness, sweet, medium body, finishes roasty. But Jaysus, get your production quality up to standard.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 AROMAT: Palony, zapach skórki czarnego chleba (pumpernikiel), kawy zbożowej i słodycz. WYGLĄD: Klarowne z czarną barwą i drobną pianą. SMAK: Wybija się paloność połączona z pumperniklem (jak w aromacie), delikatnie słone i kwaskowate. Malo ciała, niskie nasycenie i duża pijalność.

Both flavor and nose have a fairly smooth chocolate and malt note to them, but the bottle I got had a whole lot of diacetyl in both of them, enough to make this nigh undrinkable. Probably needs a rerate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,5L bottle, BB 11.06.2014. Pours dark brown almost black with tan head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is roast, coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste is coffee, sour, roast, smoke, tobacco, fruits and very light sweetness. Finish is sour and slightly dry with some nice smoke. Overall: this is great surprise; I was expecting something a lot worse. It seems that BB should be read as "BA - Better After".

Poured cold from a bottle. Small and fairly quickly dissipating head. Aroma is nice, malty, a touch sweet and roasty, warm at the same time. Taste is watery, a bit astringent and a little sour.
