3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium brown color with a medium to thin tan head. Aroma is roasted grains with a touch of caramel. Flavor is initially quite dry, crisp - followed by some roasted notes of grains and a hint of caramel, then immediately dries back out - slightly bitter finish.
Dark reddish brown, clear, with an inch or more of rocky foam. Aroma is resinous hops, coffee, toast. Taste is quite unlike a brown ale, really, at least to begin. Begins with a very bubbly, bitter, hoppy hit, that becomes more roasty, and toasty as it moves towards a finish that is more balanced (but still bitter), but shows more of the brown ale nuttiness. It's not really what I'm looking for. It's a punchy bitter thing with some darker malts thrown in. john44 (3331) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Bottle. (Brief tasting notes and rating from old records) - Lots of coffee in the aroma. The flavour is more coffee with dark chocolate and a long bitterness with a hint of hops. Terrific beer. (Backlog) Gangstergafje (1228) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2017
01-10-2017; bottle; at home (bought at a Plus Supermarket in Rotterdam, The Netherlands).
The looks of the beer are nice. The color of the beer is a nice dark brown. The beer has a beautiful ruby red glow. The beer has a nice cloudiness. On top of the beer there is a nice soft layer of light brown foam. Foam retention is average. After a while a nice drape is left. On the glass there is some lacing. Not bad.
The smell of the beer isn't bad, but to be honest I expected a bit more. I smell some nice aromas of of sweet malts, including some liquorice, some caramel, a touch of coffee. It is nice, but I expected slightly more. Besides the malts, there are some nice hop aromas. Some nice fruity hops, but als strong piney hops, with a herbal touch. They pair nice with the firm malts. It is good, but I just expected more.
The taste of the beer is nice. There are nice strong malt. Flavours of chocolate, coffee, liquorice, some alcohol but also a nice spiciness. There are also nice spicy and herbal hops, together with some fruity and piney hops. They give nice bitters and slight acidity to the beer. The beer is well balanced.
The palate of the beer is nice. Full body, smooth texture, high carbonation and a nice tingly thing. There is also a nice alcohol touch. The finish of the beer is nice. There are nice malts and spicy hops in there, and nice alcohol. All in all, a nice beer. I like it, even though I expected slightly more of the smell. dnicolaescu (2683) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 30, 2017
DRAFT at Mikeller Bucharest. Murky brown. Sweet dark fruity. The taste is not up to that level. Caramel and dark fruit, musty cardboard. Weird. murzyn (435) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - AUG 29, 2017
Barwa ciemnobrązowa, piana spora.
Aromat słodowy, chmielowy, karmelowy, sosnowy, kawowy. Mega złożony i ułożony.
W smaku ciemne pieczywo, kwasowa kawa, gorzki finisz. Alko niewyczuwalne ale pifko wydaje się mocniejsze niż jest w rzeczywistości.
Bardzo fajne pifko.

Flavour: herbal and spicy, quite dry, quite sweet, pretty bitter, nutty, roasty, hints, lots of caramel. awesome! nathanvc (644) - Brugge, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2017
Pours dark brown with a moussy, lacing-leaving, beige head. The aroma contains roasted malt, dark chocolate, wood, hops, coffee, nuts and herbs. It tastes very light malty sweet and medium to heavy bitter, with a long, dry, roasted, though hoppy fnish. Slick texture, average carbonation. Complex and good, but a bit too hoppy bitter to my liking.
