Good god what a nose. Beautiful deep plummy figgy chocolatey nose. Profound and complex.If the aroma could talk it would speak like James Earl Jones. Pours deep red brown with almost purply highlights and eventually forms a contant strong thin line of head. Tastes like it smells. Like having your mouth massaged with chocolate. Body is slightly acidic yet firm bit in time integrates and leads to an outstandingly long sappy sweet soft smoothness.

rafax (218) - POLAND - MAR 21, 2017
Bottle. Dark amber, little bit hazy with red sparks and huge, solid, frothy head. Good lacing. Quite strong aromas of raisins, dried fruits little bit red wine and malts. Full body, high carbonation, sweet with slight spicy feeling and light alcohol warming in the aftertaste and some light, hidden bitterness. Smooth, oily mouthfeel, complex in taste and very well balanced.

Piękny zapach. Wiśnie, daktyle, rodzynki, palony karmel. Piwo ciemno brązowe. Intensywna ale niezbyt trwała piana. W smaku ciemne owoce i karmel.

Block (2495) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2017
A strong Belgian but very well balanced. The alcohol is masked completely. Caramel malts on a mild body. Very smooth. Yeast throughout with a sweet finish. Nearly sessionable for a beer of this potency.

Szopeen (460) - POLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Barwa ciemnego bursztynu, obfita, ale szybko opadająca piana. Bardzo ładny aromat: figi, rum, karmel, rodzynki, trochę toffi. W smaku dzieje się dużo mniej, jest karmel, trochę suszonych owocw. Nie pomaga wysokie nasycenie. Trzeba jednak oddać, że piwo jest dobrze ułożone, alkohol kompletnie niewyczuwalny. Dobre, ale liczyłem na dużo więcej.
