Pours a deep golden color with an slightly tan head that disipates quickly. Little visible carbonation.
Smells of caramel, candied fruit and earthy notes of barley and wet hay.
Taste is strong and very sweet with malted barley and notes of caramel and fruity (most notably apple-ish) flavors. Mild hops and a hint of alcohol in the aftertaste. Hard to believe it could get any better, but it does as it warms close to room temperature!
From the importer website:
Brewed by Polish license and authentic 16th-century Polish recipe used in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth.
Orange-gold. The smell is of rich full caramel malt. The hops are very balanced, giving it a mild floral flavor with some spice, but very understated. Not overly yeasty - again, very balanced. The taste is of fruity esters in a rich caramel brew. Alcohol flavor is not prevalent despite being 12% ABV. Overall, the flavor is outstanding. Naturally fermented.

This is my go-to gift shop! Unique foods and wine, beer and DIVINE chocolates. There may be other cheese shops, wine shops, chocolate shops... but they are ordinary. GourmetPhile is EXTRAORDINARY in each of these categories! GO! You'll feel like you've just made the greatest discovery of local gems. And you did!
Amazing selection of wine! My favorite European cheese.. and chocolate is to die for!It's Boca's Gem! Highly recommend!
Boca doesn't have enough fun activities or unique finds. It's amazing to encounter both in one hidden gem. Every wine there is top notch, available at every budget. The food items though really take my breath away. This is your one stop shop for an elevated Netflix n Chill. Don't miss this treasure!
