2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slovak version, 0,5l bottle. Quite a good beer. Almost black with a head that disappears completely quite quickly. Aroma of keys in handsweat :) The taste is fulfilling, strong roasted coffee with something bittersweet that I can’t put my tongue on... The bitterness comes out stronger in the finish.

Head goes down very quickly and is off brown. Body, very dark brown. Aroma; roasted malts and alcohol, flavour: very pleasant strong roasted malts, bitterness, raisins, can feel alcohol but it is not disturbing thanks to the mentioned burned grainy character, medium-bodied, very tasty, balanced BITTERNESS and SMOOTH ROASTINESS are going each side by side.
