MrGGen (308) - ITALY - JUN 6, 2014
Versa nero con una gran schiuma beige cremosa e frizzante. L’aroma è arrosto, di liquirizia, caffè e un pò dii salsa di soia. Molto morbida e corposa. In bocca sa di tostato, come caffè, un po ’di cioccolato, liquirizia e vagamente affumicata. Di alta qualità Ci voleva dopo aver assaggiato quella schifezza della Slalom.

SarkyNorthener (1788) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Bottle thanks to Fin and Loz and shared with Richthevillan. Lot 104. Very dark cola like beer, no carbonation and a small head around the rim of the glass. Aroma of faint soy sauce, licorice and dark prunes. Taste is a little leather, licorice, stewed prunes and dark berries. Oily and medium bodied. Slightly sticky. Excellent stuff one of the best.
