Poured from the bottle into a stange glass.
A murky brown light orange body is presented, some cola like sticking carbonation, but with a good amount of small white pinhead rising bubbles as well. Head makes two fingers, light tan in color and settles to a small thin puck.
Nose is interesting, light fruity esters giving to fig and raisins almost hinting of Belgian dark ale sensing sweetness, but much lighter and less sweet. Good solid hints of simple toffee and caramel.
Really nice crisp palate, with good dense malt and light club soda effervescent quality. Sharp hop mixing with a lime citrus astringent finish. Light toffee and fruity raisins match nicely in this very interesting style through the mid palate.
Real interesting beer, probably not what I want in a Kolsch, but it's a real interesting style a mix of light kolsch and sweet dark caramel flavors.

SMELL: Barley, whiskey malt, euro beer kinda smell with toffee and booze being prominent. Some fruity alcohol and candy notes are there as well.
TASTE: Self dubbed a Polish Style Kolsch, this beer opens with an upfront scotchy malt profile and a minor tea like lemony hop bitter. The flavors are somewhat light but has enough of a malt bill to provide ample cocoa and nutty notes. Finishes with a chalky feel on a medium/full bodied beer. Too heavy to be a standard Kolsch, this rounded polish style Kolsch reminds me more like a light scotch ale.
OVERALL: Hard to categorize, this Kmita Kolsch is fairly tasty, and blindfolded I would have sworn this was imported. An odd ball beer, I kind of like it, but I really would look elsewhere for a clean example of the style.
