1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Butelka. Aromat słodu z maleńkim dodatkiem ziół. Jest coś miodowo - maślanego. Kolor bursztynowo - czerwony. Piana obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, szybko opada pozostawiając minimalna warstwę, dość chętnie zdobi szkło. Smak słodowy z niską goryczką, która uwydatnia się po chwili bardziej, przechodząc w ściągające garbniki. Są też nuty octowe. Wysycenie lekko za wysokie.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Body has clear darker pale color, kinda like a fusion, low to medium frosty white head. Aroma has caramel touch, little bit coffee like in the background, quite weak. Taste has high earthy bitterness with light to medium caramel sweetness, really long bitter after taste, balanced to the bitterness across the palate, little bit too much for my taste. Refreshing at first but quite heavy a the end of the bottle. Body is full, high carbonation.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Garnet-amber beer with fast gone off-white head. Rather gassy nose, but all in all - virtually absent nose... Some liquorice, as from miles away. Bit of coffee, parsley - and lots of water. Thirteenth draw from some coloured malts (I suppose). Utterly watery, just some carbonation trying to liven things up. This bottle was part of a gift - otherwise the expression " expensive coloured water" might have sprung to mind. Txs all the same, Peter!
