fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Ceramic bottle, bottled 2009-01-22.
Measured Final Gravity 1027

These guys at Maciej Jaros surely have very attractive bottles (also expensive...).
It pours a beautiful gold-copper color, bright, but with some haze. The aroma is deep, with honey, mild fruits (even some strawberries), iberic fortified wines (from Sherry to white Porto). The flavor is sweeter than the 1027 F.G. would suggest, with honey, some soft caramel, and a fair degree of fruitiness; the alcohol is moderate and works as pleasant complement. The final gets just a bit drier. Fresh and highly drinkable.
Very good. As a Trojniak, one of the best.

FatPhil (9597) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 11, 2014
750ml corked glass wine bottle (Dionizos, Radom) - apparently aged 9 years
Lovely soft but dense honey aroma, some slightly perfumey herbal aspects, alas a little alcohol when not pouring from a freshly opened bottle (should have done the rating first time, sigh). Lovely rich cupric amber, flat as expected. Flatish palate, a little watery. Sweet honey present, but not sticky or sugary. Some slight waxiness maybe. Lacking an acidic bite to bring some life to it. Late finish has some nice walnut papers. Was better when freshly opened, so share this with a large group and finish it off, you can get a pretty decent impression of this from 5-7cl.

Bottle thanks to my Mom for Christmas! Pours a deep copper with a hint of gold and no head whatsoever. Aroma has a nice note of smooth honey, but has a good amount of backing booze as well. Flavor starts with a nice sweet honey note with a hint of light fruit but the finish is quite boozy and harsh.
