3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap (Targowa, Wrocław). Black colour, beige head with nice lacing. Roasty in aroma with small hint of chocolate and alcohol like liquor. Taste related to aroma with very nice sweetness and chocolate in aftertatse. Bitterness medium with roast character. After few sips you feel nice warm starts in the throat and ends in the stomach. Beer is smooth with oil consistency, quite drinkable.

From a bomber. Very dark pour with a thick dark tan head. Nose of chocolate and roastiness. Somewhat light bodied with the expected chocolate forward roasty goodness, less sweet as promised with some hoppy spice mixed in. The off-sweet taste seems intentional and works well. Excellent, well balanced beer.

On tap. Poured a deep brown with a thick creamy head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit, grain and trace of chocolate. taste of dark fruit roasted malt and some chocolate. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Full body, thick and creamy, the chocolate becomes more pronounced as it warms. No hint of the 9.2% ABV. Well crafted beer to relax with.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pitch black with a light beige head. Soft chocolate, fruity and lightly bitter aroma. Soft mouthfeel on a medium body. The taste is earthy, chalky and gives you bitter chocolate with smooth oatmeal. Good enough but after the rest of tonight’s beers not terribly exciting.

Dark thick black. Quite bitter, like chewing on a handful of unsweetened cocoa nibs. A little overwhelming but Im pretty sure that was their goal....I want banana or strawberries or something else that I typically use to make nibs bearable. At least its nice and creamy at the end. Thx Whereisyourball. Enjoyed in my backyard hammock!
