BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, - MAY 8, 2012
500ml bottle, best before November 2007, drank in June 2007. I chose this beer (from my stash) because I had some Chilli Edam cheese my wife had bought for my Belgian beer night and I wouldn’t let her serve it because it would have ruined the tastebuds of everyone. I wanted to eat the cheese with a beer that would complement each other. My review is for the beer before I started eating the chilli cheese, although I enjoyed it more washing down the biscuits and cheese. Poured into my Gordon’s Finest Gold thistle glass, it looks great. Dark with an off white head. The aroma is of sweet malts, the taste is weak and thin, so too the mouthfeel. I thought this might be disappointing, I wasn’t mistaken, it will help wash down the chilli cheese.

Piwo klarowne w kolorze ciemno brazowym ze zbita i konkretna drobnopecherzykowa lekko nezowa piana. W aromacie zboze, prazone slody i lekka palonosc. W smaku raczej wytrawne z wysyceniem na srednim poziomie i lekko palona goryczka. Jest troche karmelu, moze nawet jakies nuty ciemnego chleba i popiol. Piwo wodniste i lekkie, malo sie dzieje ale gardlo mozna nim przeplukac.

massingasetta (690) - München, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2016
In the true Czech tradition of dark beers, this was everything that I expected. The beer starts with a caramelly and sweet note, going over to a more traditional hopyy bitrterness. I really liked it, but it is not as drinkable as some others.

malushky (108) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2016
On tap in a pub in Kraków. Dark brown in appearance with lasting beige head. Malty aroma of caramel and coffee. Malty taste, a bit acid, roasted. Easy to drink, a bit watery. OK beer, but nothing special.
