“ Brand: Grudziadz / Beer: Dark Strong Lager / Poland / Type: Lager „
Gotyckie is another one from the Grudziadz brewery in Poland, it's also another one that claims to be for "connoiseurs" - this seems to be the breweries excuse for making powerhouse beers. This one is another 9% dark beer and the description of subtle sweetness is one of the biggest understatements this year.
This is a dark beer that pours a coca-cola type colour but it's not a Porter, it has no real caramel or coffee scent to it, nor does it feel roasted but what it does have is a very sickly flavour and one that I can't forgive it for despite it's pretty stylish looking bottle.
The beer does include hops but I certainly couldn't taste them, this may be a case of me not being a particularly big fan of overly sweet beer, so anyone who likes their beer sweet and strong may want to to give it a go, I'll reserve sweet and strong for tea though!
