KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium amber brown with a large (2-3 fingers) rocky light tan head that lasted a little while leaving behind some puddled residue floating on top thus producing excellent lacing that really stuck to the glass. The aroma was strong of a toasted biscuit malt, a nice piney hop and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and dried dark fruit. It tasted malty-sweet with a hint of caramel at first and mildly bitter from the hops at the finish with a touch of dried fruit at the end with the flavor lasting a really nice long time after the swallow. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and a little dry in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall a very impressive brew for this style, a perfect blending of flavors with a nice mild hop finish.

Clear dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has caramel, burnt sugar and some dried dates. Taste starts slightly sweet with caramelized sugar and some generic dried fruits. Finish is balanced out by some earthy bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Overall it’s a nice beer, not a classic marzen, and I like that.

Pours from bottle a beautiful copper color with a quickly disappearing head. A sweet malty nose and coffee, toffee, toast, caramel are what I get. A minimal background of hoppiness. A sweet and round palate with a fine finish. The sweetness is not something I am too fond of in a beer, but this is quite enjoyable and I could really pair this with a Polish or German sausage sandwich and feel quite happy indeed.

imperial_suchy (103) - Rybnik, POLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Piękny bursztynowy kolor z drobnopęcherzykową pianką. Pachnie słodowo owocowo. Czuć też nuty chlebowe. W smaku piwo słodkie, przypomina landrynke. Smakuje również rodzynkow chlebowo. Piwo bardzo przyjemne i bardzo pijalne.

Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel and bread.

Hazy/turbid dark orange/brown beer with a slight/medium

Starts slightly/medium sweet with malts and caramel; ends slightly dry with bread.

This beer is rather intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Only has malt flavours, which makes it very simple. Not my type of beer at all. At least the appearance is great.

12 oz. bottle. BBD 02.09.17. 5.6% ABV per the label, so a different recipe. Pours a medium, well retained dark ivory body,, over a clear copper (SRM 17) body........nose is toasted malts with biscuit, cracker, bread,j hints of toffee/caramel, no hops, balance to the malts......taste is mildly hints of sweetness to start, with light toffee/caramel tones, moderate toasted malts with Vienna, Munich tones, becoming dry with mild hop bitterness, balance to the malts.......mouth feel , light of medium body, no alcohol, light carbonation. This is slightly sweeter than typical for the style, but has appropriate malt complexity. It is not a favorite style of mine, but is nicely done. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7
