COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Behold the stunning crimson hues through the inky blackness. Inhale the noble Hallertau hops, spicy and floral. Savor the flavors redolent of English toffee, rich mocha, sweet molasses, candied currants and a hint of anise. We highly recommend cellaring additional bottles, as the Czar will continue to mature and become denser and more complex with age.

Batch no. 16, Nov. 2016, alc. 10.6%. A black beer, a head is quite small and light brown. Aroma has richness of malts, roastiness, melassie, caramel, liquorice. Taste has maltyness, liquorice, sweetness of caramel, balanced and quite strong bitterness. Full bodied, smooth palate. Complex, based on huge maltyness, old-fashioned or meant traditional. Very tasteful and powerful.

mgajdaczewa (2178) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 3, 2017
Backlog ŚFP #10 Dużo czekolady, karmelu, nieco sosu sojowego i pumperniklu. W smaku nieco za duzo lako i karmelu, za mało czekolady. Imperialny porter bałtycki bardziej niż ris. Niezłe.
