Pours dark brown with no head. The smell is nothing special and is strongly yeasty. Taste is very full at first bit then a sour aftertaste kicks in, that ruins the beer for a second there. The good thing is the aftertaste quickly diminishes and you can enjoy the rest of the beer. Cheers

Ascelja (1329) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 8, 2017
Bottle. Dark red to brown, small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, berries. Taste is sourish- bitter. Alcohol, berries, dates, lot of caramel. Medium body and carbonation, alcohol is disturbing.
Not very good...

Kad isprobava neko pivo - mnogo je dobro krenuti sa minimalnim očekivanjima. Tako sam i ja otvorio ovo pivo sa mislima na ono čokoladno istog imena i proizvođača - bilo je bez veze. Ovo je druga priča. Duboka i tamna crvena boja - skoro crna. Odlična. Aroma također. Ni traga od ovih 8,5% alkohola. Mnogo keksa, mnogo ljenjak karamele. Ukus - vratio se sav onaj alkohol koji je ostao sakriven. Tijelo - bogato. ao mi je samo to nisam ispio pivo na nekoj minus temperaturi. Grije. Tople preporuke za narednu zimu.

Gud bevare drottningen. Shr bra kan det bli om dina understar brjar brygga rejla, alkoholstarka, malttunga ales istller fr ynkliga bitters. Vldigt vlskapt maltkombination med mnga dimensioner av frmst karamellmalt och en aning kola eller mjligen mjlkchoklad. Den hga alkoholhalten gr stor nytta den hr gngen och str inte ver huvud taget.

martpez (177) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2017
Silky smooth in the mouth (As such a strong ale should have) deep malts sharp clean hoppy aftertaste. Lots of toffee flavors in here. Strong but but not overpowering. Really lovely hard to find such a good beer for such a reasonable price!

Vackert mrkt rubinrd, medelstort skum. Doft av russin, plommon i madeira, mandelmassa, aningen eldighet. St, fyllig smak med russin, mandelmassa, fruktstman balanseras av en bra beska som blommar ut i eftersmaken och sitter kvar lnge och s lite madeira- och portvinstoner.

Brown ruby with little beige head. Aroma is marzipan, roast, toffee, dried figs, a hint of smoke. Deep and complex. Taste is well balanced everything: Chocolatey sweetness, some bitter roast. Spicy finish with raisins. Full body, very smooth. I love it.
