   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Edoardo (8) - ITALY - MAY 14, 2013 does not count
Colore ambrato carico, schiuma poco persistente. Aromi ovviamente dati dall’affumicatura del malto, ma si possono distinguere anche sentori di pelle, cuoio e frutta secca. In bocca rispecchia in pieno le aspettative date dagli aromi, corpo pieno, ritorna l’affumicatura del malto, ma si affianca anche un leggero sentore di caramello. Retrogusto breve, etilico. Da meditazione.

Kosmokrator (794) - ITALY - MAR 12, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2015 Color ambrato limpido, poca schiuma; maltata e affumicata al naso, sentori più delicati di biscotto e caramello bilanciati da altri più legnosi e "terrosi". Il gusto è in linea con l’atteso con note asciutte e fumose che ricordano molto un distillato (anche se non proprio "torbate" per come le intendo io); il malto fa da padrone, il contributo del luppolo è davvero minimo. Corpo medio ed effervescenza debole; non è che mi sia piaciuta molto.
