COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra di color nocciola, robusta e molto corposa, si presenta con un elevato tenore alcolico. Ha un naso moderatamente fruttato con sentori prevalenti di frutta secca. In bocca si percepisce distintamente il malto, il caramello, la liquerizia e un sentore finale di cioccolato. Una vera birra da meditazione.
