bonev (519) - POLAND - JAN 14, 2017
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.

leghorn99 (256) - roma, ITALY - SEP 6, 2016
La birra versa nel bicchiere di colore marrone scuro con riflessi ramati, elevata torbidità; la schiuma è minimale, di colore marroncino chiaro. L’aroma iniziale è unico nel suo genere: bacche di ginepro e vagamente muschiato; oltre ad aromi più classici di malto, caramellato e vaniglia. In bocca inizia moderatamente amara (ma non luppolata), ma vira rapidamente su sapori di malto e note erbacee (ancora ginepro). La birra rimane abbastanza corposa, con una quantità perfetta di bollicine; retrogusto che rimane dolce-amaro, con l’alcool che dona un po’ di calore.

mice (861) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Kirkas, syvän rubiininpunainen ja ruskeaan kallellaan oleva olut hyvin pienellä nopeasti häviävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu makean maltainen, ruisleipämäinen, hieman portviinimäinen ja jopa aavistuksen luumuinen. Katajankin pystyy tuoksusta bongaamaan. Kivasti jouluinen fiilis, mutta ei överiksi vedettynä. Maku heti alkuunsa kermaisen pehmeä mutta samalla varsin täyteläisellä suutuntumalla. Vahvan maltainen, ruisleipämäinen, rusinainen. Jälkimaultaan hieman suolainen sekä aavistuksen yrttisen katkeroitu. Toimiva kokonaisuus.

ciocanelu (1728) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 29, 2016
Hazy, dark amber color with tan head. Aroma has sweet caramel malt, brown sugar but also an astringent note. Taste startssweet with brown sugar and dried fruit notes, gets more bitter in the middle taste with some earthy/woody flavor and finishes even more bitter with a lingering charred wood note. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Overall it’s an interesting style of beer but not something to really seek out.
