Pours a dark amber red-brown with a light tan thin but lingering head. Aroma has a lot going on with berry fruits, brown sugar, yeast, toffee and lightly toasted malts, quite complex. Taste is sweet and lingering light bitter on the finish with a smooth thick mouth feel. Complex and one to take your time over and enjoy properly. Great beer

Color marrone con schiuma beige, con un sapore di malto tostato e forse un tocco di cioccolato e spezie, chiude con una punta più amara. Ha proprio una bella personalità.

Piana bardzo obfita, kremowa, dość trwała i oblepiająca szkło. Barwa brązowo-bordowa, mętna. W aromacie jest kakao, czerwone i suszone owoce, likier wiśniowy, pestki moreli. Ta pestkowość po ogrzaniu się piwa jest niestety drażniąca, przypominająca stare zbutwiałe drewno. W smaku pojawia się więcej cech stoutu, jest tu troszkę słodkości czekoladowej, jest paloność, są rodzynki, jest i alkohol przypominający brandy. Goryczka alkoholowo-prażona, choć niewysoka to dość długo pozostaje i zalega nieprzyjemną alkoholowością. Wysycenie średnie, podbijające ziemistość i treściwość piwa w odbiorze. Potencjał jest, moc jest, wygląd jest, niestety do poprawy aromat i rok leżakowania w celu ułożenia alkoholu - wtedy byłby to trunek pierwszej klasy. Tak niestety piwo jest zaledwie dobre, lecz nieułożone, niezbalansowane...
