BlackHaddock (6974) - 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.

On tap, Red Baron, Tegel Airport Berlin. Dark brow, large beige head. Aroma malt, coffee, some chocolate. Bitter-sweet taste, finish mainly bitter. Rather lacking in body, but not surprising, given the low ABV. Drinkable.

MMJL (419) - Gliwice, POLAND - APR 4, 2017
W zapachu z butelki palone, słodowe z wyraźną nutą żateckiego chmielu. Nalewa się ciemnobrązowe, klarowne z bardzo wysoką jasnobrązową średniopęcherzykową szybko opadającą pianą. Aromat ze szkła niezbyt intensywny - głównie słód i chmiel. W smaku mało intensywne, delikatnie czekoladowe, zauważalnie chmielowe ale z nikłą goryczką. Przyjemny długi posmak ale generalnie odczucie pustki. Wodniste.

Zapach mało intensywny, słód, opiekany chleb, karmel. Kolor ciemnobrązowy, klarowne. Piana beżowa, obfita, średniopęcherzykowa, trwała, zdobi szkło. W smaku lekka słodycz, niska pełnia, słód, chleb, zioła, karmel, żelazo. Goryczka niska, wysycenie średnie.

I tasted it for the first time in Prague 2007 and then it was an amasing beer - full, dark, chocolaty but with nice bitterly salty after-taste. Since then though it seems that either my taste had evolved or the producer had started using different recipe and now it seems more ordinary and hollow than before. First sip is still cool every now and then, though

Icedwarf (1512) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2017
Zwart bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet met iets van chocolade, karamel en heel lichte rook. Is enigszins waterig.

Bottle. Dark Brown. Malty (roast malts; chocolate, caramel, hint of smoke). Slight hop bitterness. Sweet roast malty leading to a moderately bitter finish. Thin but quite nice. Drinkable. (2008)

Pallleon (290) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 1, 2017
Sötétbarna szín, bézs habbal. Pörkölt malátás, karamelles íz. Nem rossz sör, csak már azt sem tudom hol gyártják.
