2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle at home. brown color, clear. looks like quite a lot of carbonation. small off-white head which evaporates quickly. smells malty sweet, grainy, bread, light smell of milk chocolate. light body, oily texture, sticky, quite bubbly, tastes very sweet/sticky, lots of malty sweetness, molasses, caramel, brown sugar. sweet / caramelly finish. because of the low ABV easy to drink, but just too sweet. I guess the sweetness was necessary to compensate the low ABV or it would be too watery.

20.01.13: Bottle 0.5 l. Ciemne piwo o słabej pianie. W smaku słodkie z wyczuwalnym posmakiem suszonych śliwek, nawet oryginalne, niestety jak dla mnie zdecydowanie za słodkie.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled in Vienna. Old ratings. Extremely sweet caramel and sugary flavors, with no subtlety, no redeeming characteristics, just way too sweet.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a beer I encountered while in Vienna, and found that - sadly - it was not being exported to the United States. It is sweet, the bouquet is transporting, and it is quite rewarding in its genial drinkability. I do not miss the hoppyness and bitterness of most brews, and I find it delightfully different.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. It pours a deep reddish brown with an enormous beige head. The aroma is malts and molasses, very much like a malta, but it isn’t particularly powerful. The taste is particularly sweet and sugary, with only some slight, earthy bitterness to it from the hops. The mouthfeel is easy, thin and watery with very gentle carbonation. A very easy-to-drink beer.
