Let mørk øl, smager mørk, men forsvinder hurtigt. Flot farve, men ikke en øl jeg selv ville lave �� ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nose of strong elderberry syrup, almost sickening. In mouth, elderberry is not as present, even a bit shy, present a bit on the attack and finish. Overall quite balanced. Misses complexity.

Metallic and roasted malt notes on the nose, from a bottle, it pours black, with a thin head. Dark fruits on the finish

Black *bottle*, 330ml, cork and cask. Pours black with Ruby hue. Thin head subsiding quickly. Scent is dense caramel notes from toasted malt. Taste is medium sweet caramel and fruity malt. Mouth feels syrup and a bit acidic in a bad way. Good overall.

Light fruity scent. Initial flavor is pretty mellow. Elderberry starts quickly on the palate. It's nice. I like how the darker flavors calm. Slight sweetness. I might get it again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Annorlunda. Smak och doft av choklad, fläderbär, enbär. Rund och söt med en lätt beska.

Nice Dark color with a medium tan head. Aromas are roasted malts, coffee, raisins and licorice, with a hint of eldberry. I'm not really into fruit beer but this one is tasy and balanced. The elderberry is discreet. A nice fruity black ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Majek (860) - Ząbki, POLAND - JAN 13, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2013 SMAK: Slodki posmak kwiatowy oraz czekoladowy , wyczuwalne slody palone, na finiszu lekko wytrawne. Troche przypomina porter . Czu? równie? jaki? dziwny posmak, moze to ten mirt bagienny? ZAPACH: Slodowosc palona, troche czekolady. Ogólnie skojarzylo mi sie z porterem. WYGL?D : Kolor czarny jak w stoucie, nawet pod swiatlo nic nie przenika. Piana ciemno bezowa, na poczatku zbita, ale szybko znika. Do konca zostaje obwodka. Ciekawe, na pewno warto spróbowac

A black beer with a thin head and fruity, slightly sour aroma. The flavour is a bit disappointing because it’s subtle to the point of blandness. You can taste the berries and what I think the bottle mentions as roasted grain but it’s not strong enough to be distinctive.
