Very similar to the fruity, spicy quality of the blond, but with the touch of wood and toasted malt. Nice and malty, sweet with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

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.

alteregoo (216) - POLAND - APR 6, 2015
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...

Bonne bière au goût plutôt agréable mais furtif. La force est bien dissimulée. Je lui trouve une légère note café réglisse.
