From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours somehow hazy and dark red with fluffy brownish foam, fine. Aroma is an enjoyable mix of caramel, resinous, hazelnut, terrain. Body is medium-dense. Taste is sweet at first, with some bitterness coming up. Finish is not particularly long the_beergery (96) - - MAY 7, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2017 Poured from a bottle, it appears hazy and unfiltered, with a deep amber coppery tone topped of with a very thin head of white froth, which dissipates quickly, leaving thin lacing, but reappears on swirling. Aroma is strongly caramel malt, together with hoppy notes of resin, florals and some fruit. Taste starts off lightly sweet, with notes of caramel, resin, florals and some fruit, then earthy undertones of bread, biscuit and dough, before finishing with bitter, though fairly abrupt. Carbonation feels quite lively, a bit too much for my taste, but strangely enough, it is paired with a rather thin and watery feel, especially towards the end.

Tap at Zly casy. Buttery and slightly roasty. Not bad, but lacking in hoppiness in all respects and also struck by diacetyl. rusos (765) - Stupava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 10, 2016
On tap, zlý časy. Amber colour, white head. Aroma hops, pine, caramel, molasses. Taste is caramel, piny hops, citrus fruits. Bitter aftertaste. Good one. MelvinKalksma (1579) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2016
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, bread and hops.
Turbid/opaque dark orange/dark brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends sightly bitter and dry with bread and hops.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is way more outspoken than the taste, such a shame. Great appearance however and a good beer overall.
