2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fľaša. Tmavšia jantárová farba, pena skoro žiadna. Vôňa orieškov, ovocia, a samozrejme sladu. Chuť prázdna, trošku kyselkavá, karamelová.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I love the way it looks, dark, murky, with a thick extra creamy head. Aromas and flavours are very sweet, with maple syrup, malts and honey. Very woody and earthy. Good old stuff. Not much of a bitterness there, but we already knew in old times that hops, that continental innovation, clearly had the side effect of making men soft.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark brown looks with some red here and there. Beige head and nice lacing. Aroma has roasted malts, wood, dried fruits and red berries. Taste has wood, dried fruits, some banana in the after taste. A little mild taste in my opinion. Slightly thin body with medium-to-low carbonation. Expected a little more from this.
