alteregoo (1237) - POLAND - MAR 14, 2017
Piana średnio oczkowa, niezbyt trwała. Barwa brązowa, klarowna. W aromacie karmel, brązowy cukier, zioła i resztki chmielu. W smaku płsłodkie, karmelowe, w tle trochę pikantnych przypraw, orzechw, kawy zbożowej, w kontrze niska, tytoniowa goryczka. Wysycenie średnie, dość pijalne i gładkie w odbiorze.
Przeciętne Brown Ale, mocno karmelowe i z mało intensywnym zapachem. Gdzieś ten zapowiadany amerykański charakter IPA uleciał w transporcie...

TeijoA (65) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2017 33,5 cl bottle, bottled 19/11/16. Surprising seems to be the word for this beer. Surprisingly dark beer, dark brown to almost black with a good beige head. The aroma is surprisingly roasty coffee, chocolate, dark malt, dark sugar, a very light pepperness. The taste is like a suckerpunch to the head after the good smell. Sour. Very light body, overly carbonated. Taste has some coffee that was left on the burner all night, sour red fruits kind of riding over everything. Is that the ginger or is it a bad bottle? This is pretty awful. Bad surprise. update 23.3.2017: Much better. Nutty, malty with a bit of chocolate and a good hop bite in the finish.

john44 (2928) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle. Black with Reddish tinge. Malty; roast malts, lots of chocolate and coffee, burnt roast, caramelized brown sugar. Hoppy; grassy and earthy hops. Sweet malty with nice bitter hoppy edge. Probably unique. Certainly interesting. An unusual and decent beer. (2008)
