Big white head. Sweet aroma: Licorice, red fruits, dried plums, caramel, some hops Very intensive. Taste is very sweet but not tiring because of high bitterness. There are caramel, malts, fruits, hops. Body is full, extremaly oily. Low carbonation. Fantastic beer!

mgajdaczewa (2350) - Katowice, POLAND - JAN 4, 2017
W aromacie słodowo, nieco karmelowo, nuty czerwonych owoców, chmiel kontynentalny, czyli lekka ziołowość, pozytywnie, ale bez szału. W smaku gorzej, półwytrawne, akcentów pozytywnego utlenienia tyle co nic, goryczka podwyższona, tępa, nieco szorstka słodowość, alkohol. Nie jest jednoznacznie złe, jest zaskakująco przeciętne, niedopracowane. Albo inaczej, staromodne. Kiedyś może i robiło wrażenie. Teraz robię meh.

Demens (518) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 23, 2016
0,375l bottle. Very thick hazy dark brown colour with long lasting tan head. Aroma: Very rich, rasin notes first, caramel, nuts (especially almond when the beer gets a bit warmer), redcurrant. Not harsh, sophisticated. Taste: Oh yeah. Sweet and very rich in malts, thick syrup like drink. Than the high alcohol shows up with some tarty caracter (redcurrant) but just for a few seconds before the full pleasent bitter mouthfeel rules the feel. (almond) Than the sweet dessert like caracter comes again and it’s well balanced with the bitter tone. This is what I call a complex beer. Very thick and creamy the texture. Full body with almost no carbonation at all. Long dry and bitter finish (with the almond tone in the taste). Amazing beer for celebration times.
