From Jun 2006
Poured from 33cl bottle(best by 08/09) a cloudy dark brown with a large head of foam that dissipated slowly leaving just a fine layer with lots of lacing.
The smell is all sweet and fruity and yeasty with strong notes of plum. A very nice nose indeed.
The taste is very sweet up front; I note molasses & fig(?) with just a touch of the plum that I noted in the smell and no yeasty flavour at all. The alcohol is not a factor in the taste but does create a bit of a warming feeling...nothing wrong with that but I know that 1 of these is all that I could handle at 1 sitting. ;^)
Bottom line: I had this brew a couple of years ago and I have to honestly say, I didn't care much for it at the time but now, after expanding my palate's horizons, so to speak, I find this brew a definite winner and certainly a world class product. I thoroughly recommend it! Youngil.j.cho (2) - - OCT 15, 2017 does not count

Ciemno brązowe, mętne piwo z obfitą pianą która dość szybko znika ale zostawia ładne ślady na szkle. Aromat intensywny rodzynki, winogrona, czarne porzeczki. W smaku podobnie plus karmel, brązowy cukier, lekko winne, dobrze zabalansowana wytrawnosc że słodyczą. Niezmiennie znakomite piwo Barea (101) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 8, 2017

Very smooth but deceptively boozy! Alcohol does not overpower the flavour but definitely a first, not last beer of the night
