Fules (727) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 14, 2016
Gyönyörű, hatalmas, bézs színű hab, fekete szín. Illata enyhe, pörkölt, kávés jegyeket mutat. Gyümölcsös, de alapvetően lágeres ízvilág, enyhe pörkölt jegyekkel. Szerencsére nincs kénes aroma. Keserűssége gyakorlatilag nics. Utóíze malátás jegyeket mutat, és nem hosszú.
