Biroholik (1545) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - JUN 20, 2017
Cask @ Bricklayers Arms, Luton
Kolor ciemnego brązu, coś w deseń coca-coli. Piana kremowa, średnia, drobno ziarnista. Nie utrzymuje się zbyt długo, ale pozostawia ładny lacing na szkle. W aromacie ciemne owoce. Przede wszystkim czarna porzeczka. Jest też karmel, orzechy i trochę ciemnego chleba. W tle lekka paloność. W smaku lekko palone, trochę czarnej porzeczki, popiołu, leciutka kawa, karmel. Umiarkowane ciało i delikatny finisz. Fajne, niebanalne.

berkshirejohn (6662) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. A glossy black pour with a thin tan head; fruity chocolate aroma; smooth and creamy in the mouth, with a dry drinking chocolate taste to start, then with some fruity blackcurrant and red berry flavours; followed by a sweeter finish with a touch of coffee grounds. Satisfying.

Nice fruity aroma, some strawberry. Deep red, small spongy head. Thinnish palate. Dark roasty taste, quite burnt. Plenty of esters, but deep down, kinda dull. Slips down quite easily though.
