Keg at Bow Bar. Nose is malts, spices, even some meat. Taste is quite odd, or different, some strong barley wine style sweet maltiness, but slightly sour, boozy, spicy, some coffee and stout elements. Bitter malty finish. Interesting but wouldnt maybe buy again.

mateuszk (1115) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 25, 2015
Draught. Poured dark brown, ruby reflexes, small beige head. Aroma is quite clear with some toasted malts and low level of funkiness. In taste nothing much is happening, some xaramel and toasted notes, alcohol completely hidden. Full bodied, low bitter finish. In overall good strong beer, but there is almost nothing going on here.
