Dark brown-ruby colour with big and steady ehad and medium to smooth body. Nose of sour malt. Taste of dark nuts, dark bread, vanilla, torf, rich malt and caramel. Little bit too metallic finish, but otherwise really nice and easy to drink.

flying_pig (1435) - SCOTLAND - MAY 12, 2014
500ml Bottle from Prague Airport (60Czk):

Sweet with some sugar and chocolate coming through alongside some floral notes, background fruits and light hops. Some earthy notes, raisin and a little treacle coming through too. Mahogany brown with a large, 2 fingers tall, foamy beige head with good retention & some lacing on the sides too. Sweet although not as sweet as the aroma, slightly more subdued with more of an earthy flavour. Some raisin, hints of chocolate, caramel & dark malts with an almost nutty taste. Smooth with about low to medium carbonation & an almost creamy body, the beer also has hints of spice through it.

A mellow and light taste that was easy enough to drink but didn’t really do enough to grab my attention or have me want to desperately take another drink. It was nice & the taste was well balanced but it just seemed like one big blur & I doubt it will be a memorable one.

hvn (261) - Nuuk, GREENLAND - DEC 9, 2015
Barwa ciemna z czerwonymi przebłyskami, trochę jak cherry coke. Mistrzowski lacing. Piana gesta pozostaje do konca. W aromacie slodowe, lekkie nuty slodkich porterów. W smaku lekkie nuty czerwonych owoców. Dobre lecz trochę nudne.
