2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle purchased 2009. Figure this has been breathing my cellarís summer warmth and winter chill enough. Deep brown color, but somehow clean, fizzes like a soda pop. Smell of kilned malts, a but of plum, and somehow alcoholic. Nothing off, which is always the risk. First thing that hits the tongue, though, is a very thin mouthfeel. Not that itís a weak beer, but it just seems thereís not enough flavor to go around. Still has some fizz to it, so not like itís a cask pour. Mine had plenty of dregs or yeast at the bottom, which I swirled in, and it picked up the flavor a bit. But this one just left me feeling that for its reputation, it should be better. Maybe a newer bottle will be considered at a future date.

For bottled beer this is very good. Loose deep beige head over a dark body. In the mouth the beer is not thin but not heavy either. Fruity initially with sweetness then burnt caramel coming through, light bitter finish. Medium lasting length of flavour.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Piwo klarowne w kolorze czarnym z niezbyt obfita gubopecharzykowa piana. W aromacie lekka kawa i sliwki suszone. W smaku palony karmel, rodzynki i troche nut drewnianych. Wysycenie i goryczka na dosc niskim poziomie. Spodziewalem sie wiecej doznan jak na ten styl.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a lovely dark shade with a hint of red. Aroma I struggled to find anything except a vague whiff of coffee, taste however was very pleasant, strong malty yet sweet flavours combining perfectly together leaving a lovely bitter aftertaste, lots of great roasted flavours involved, a good buy!

Bottle, 50 cl, Au comptoir de la biŤre, Callian (83). Overall very nice ale: smooth yet convincing. Pleasant mouthfeel, mild bitter finish. To me, ABV should not be higher: well balanced in all respects.

Bottle. Pouts dark nut brown, with slight lacing. Hint of roast coffee, banana notes, licorice, peach. Interesting fruity notes for such a malty character too! Sweet, bready finish - perhaps a touch thin. Really nice ale!

Sweet spicy aroma.
Pours dark brown with cream head.
Mild bitterness with minor residual malty aftertaste but thatís about it.
I was expecting a lot more body and but what i got was a very thin finish.
