Fajne piwo, takie idące w stronę czekolady deserowej w każdym aspekcie, jednocześnie ma taką delikatną paloność, przez co jest dosyć wytrawne. Panzerfaust (870) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - AUG 24, 2017

Main notes of dark coffee grains, bitter chocolate, burnt caramel, dark bread. Taste is quite roasty, bitter-ish with initial sweetness showing nuances of dark sugars. Flavors of coffee, milk and chocolate prevail. Highly refined and balanced. Perfect integration. A delight to sip. Thick body, low carbonation. Smooth and elegant. Fantastic Stout.

Black body with a medium brown, long-lived head that laces the glass well. Strong and extremely sweet aroma of lactose, chocolate, and dark roasted malt. Very strong flavour of lactose, chocolate, dark roasted malt, dark caramel, grains, and brown sugar. Quite heavy sweet taste with a moderate bitter finish. Full body, silky smooth texture with some malty dryness, soft carbonation. A wonderful brew, and a perfect present to myself after spending a long day at the local zoo and amusement park with the family.
