Bottle. Dark with a very small head. Smooth and creamy with plenty of body considering its strength. Pleasant and an excellent example of this style.

Ciemne z ładną pianą. W zapachu i smaku niestety wyczuwalne żelazo... finisz lekko goryczkowy.

This stuff is okay. It arrived on my shelf in not exactly brand fresh condition but it’s still drinkable. A bit sweet for my tastes for the style but it has a solid malt character, kinda raisiny w/ a bit of toffee. It’s smooth on the palate w/ relatively low carbonation, which seems to lend a certain richness. At the end of the day, I really wish European brewers would keep a better eye on their American distributors. This may well be a great beer but my experience with it was solidly mediocre.
