mgajdaczewa (1858) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 11, 2014
W aromacie czekolada, kawa, popił, czyli wszystko to, z czym stout się kojarzy. Jak na ekstrakt wyjątkow gęste, czekoladowe, z wyraźną palonością, sporą goryczką, pozostawiający kawę i popił na długim przyjemnym finiszu. Lekko alkoholowy. Mały ris. Świetne piwo.

Keg at BD ShepBush. Black, tan head slowly sinks to skin. Nose of roast barley, dark chocolate, coffee, tobacco. Tastes sweet cinder toffee, milk chocolate, dark fruit, cocoa, hop bitterness, ashy burnt roast. Medium full body, slick texture, softish carb, lasting cocoa and roast astringency. This beer is bloody delicious.

330ml bottle from Kernel on a Saturday morning. Pour pitch black with a nice tall tan head. Aroma is coffee, roasted nuts and trace of chocolat. Taste is a mouthful of joy. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Full body, creamy and average carbonisation. Long sweet, bitter and coffee finish. Looking forward to go back in the brewery.
