500 ml bottle, bb 31/10/2018, from my EU Local Swap sender japppp, thanks!
Dark copper body, with a medium, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of vegetables, smoke, spices, cocoa, sour berries, tobacco.
Tastes of smoke, sour berries, cocoa, caramel, tobacco, some liquorice, spices, some hops.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes spicy, dry, smokey, subtly sweet, with cocoa, some liquorice, some fruits.

Nice one. I don’t like the nose too much, pretty strange. Taste is quite nice though, with an interesting smokey, fruity and malty mix. Interesting stuff, while not something I would drink too often.

koshack (1728) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JAN 24, 2017
Kolor ciemnego bursztyny z wiśniowymi refleksami. piana bezowa, drobna, obfita. W aromacie wyraźne nuty owocowe, ale też ziołowe. W smaku dużo bardziej ziołowe, dodatek jałowca bardzo wyraźny. Gorzkawy posmak. Ale jest też nuta karmelowa. Smakuje trochę jak mocno ziołowy, gorzkawy koźlak. Lekko gęste w odczuciu. Nie czuć alkoholu w ogóle. Bardzo ciekawe piwo.

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze ciemno miedzianym z obfita lekko zabarwiona sredniopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie suszone owoce, zywica, przyprawy i karmel. W smaku dochodza nuty chleba i biszkoptow, moze nawet troche drewna i jalowca. Piwo polslodkie, cialo polpelne z niezbyt intensywna goryczka i wysyceniem na srednim poziomie. Jest w tym piwie cos fajnego.
