Sweet and malty flavor of caramel and smoke with notes of dried fruits and alcohol.
Hoppy finish. jinroh (2467) - ESTONIA - MAY 25, 2015
Pours mahagon, amber. Quite flat. Nose has a bit of caramel. Nothing too exciting, although I was hoping for something. Taste has caramel, bit of smoke but vegetables and iron also there.. Aftertaste is bitter and messy . Probably not in its best condition.

Strong, bitter, sweet, exactly according to my taste. Great!
(500 ml bottle @ Alles Elbe, Hamburg) Hazy chestnut-coloured beer with a creamy head, interspersed with some larger bubbles. Looks quite appealing to me. On the nose there’s a lot of dried fruit - raisins and the like. The beer was advertised as Scotch Ale, so that seems fitting. In the mouth though, it’s a different matter. Much more strongly hopped than I expected, therefore with resinous notes as well. And then of course plenty of roasted malty aroma that accumulates on the roof of the mouth. A very subtle smokiness too, but I might have missed that without reading the description! The whole thing is not subtle at all, though. Intense aroma and bitterness, and solid malty body. Although I have come to value lighter drinkable beers more, I was quite impressed with this stronger one! (And no infection whatsoever detectable in the bottle I had, might I add, as I read the other reviews) Iznogud (4715) - CROATIA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle, 500 ml from Beergeek, Prague. Pours hazy orange with small white head. Malty and very yeasty, caramel, hint of smoke. Grisza (75) - Wrocław, POLAND - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle (maybe it is old but it should be good for at least next 3 weeks). My beer has dark amber colour and it is not hazy. There is a tiny white head and it gives a little bit lacing. Aroma is a little bit smoked (but if I wouldn’t know it is smoked I would say it has strawberry aroma). The same is with taste: malty and a little bit smoked (a little bit of strawbery taste). Good carbonation.
