mgajdaczewa (1642) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 19, 2015
W aromacie kawa, wanilia, czekolada deserowa, troszeczkę suszonych owoców, intensywnie i arcyprzyjemnie. W smaku zdominowane przez kawę wysokiej jakości, w stężeniu nadającym ponadprzeciętną kwaskowość, co obniżało wrażenie pełni, czyniło piwo gęste jak smoła bardziej pijalnym. Czekolada przykryta przez kawę, nieco nut waniliowych i suszonych. Mimo wysokiej kwaskowatości przyjemnie się sączyło, alkohol dobrze ukryty. Świetne, złożone piwo, aczkolwiek wolałbym ciut bardziej stonowane nuty kawy.

Manslow (1038) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Butelka zakupiona w Warszawie 0,5l. Kolor czarny wspaniały, gęsty tak jak i piana ciemnobrązowa zostawiająca na ściankach liczne ślady. Aromat czekolady i kawy, smak karmel, kakao i znowu dużo kawy i czekolady. Alkohol 10,1%niewyczuwalny ale daje moc. Goryczka średnia super wysycenie. Piwo genialne!
