3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy dark ruby with half a finger of initially fairly soapy but then later creamy and pillowy light tan head, which retains well. Lacing is think Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, spices, a slightly herbal hop note and a little bit of fruitiness that is hard to pinpoint. Roasted malts provide a fair amount of bittnerness in the taste which goes well with the ever prominent dark chocolate, although the fruity note from the aroma is absent. The spicy note is however more pronounced, but overall the taste is a bit too watery. Body is thin and carbonation is soft, but the texture is smooth enough to make for pleasant drinking, helped by a good alcohol warmth on the finish. If it were little bit less watery this would be a fantastic brew, but it’s still pleasant enough as it is.

Nieprzenikniona czerń z kremową, jasnobeżową, dość szybko zanikajacą pianką. Lekki zapach na granicy kawy i czekolady. W smaku - najpierw lekka kawowość i mleczna czekolada, z kwaskowatą, owocową goryczką. Bardzo pijalne.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 500ml. Black colour with a medium brown head. A roasted malt aroma with some wet dog notes. Flavour of roasted malt with coffee, treacle and a little chocolate. A little citrus in the finish with a bit of a funky kick (probably the coriander). Watery on the palate. Sounds like a cross between a stout and a Belgian wit; doesn’t really work for me.
