COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed at Jandrain-Jandrenouille for NovaBirra in Braine L’Alleud by Emanuele Corazzini of NovaBirra. Big Mama Stout La Big Mama est un stout de 6,2% alc. Les malts utilisés lors de son brassage lui confèrent sa couleur noire intense et de délicieux arômes de café et de chocolat. En bouche, elle développe une douceur maltée balancée par une amertume délicate. Bière au goût évolutif, elle se bonifiera au cours de la première année de garde en cave. Elle accompagnera à merveille un moelleux au chocolat et coeur de fruits rouges.
