La "Scura degli Archi", dedicata al famoso quadro di Lorenzo Viani, "l’Ossesso", è una birra típicamente Irish che riprende la celebre tipología delle stout irlandesi con i loro sapori di caffè, cioccolato e liquirizia. Meravigliosamente adalta per i freddi inverni, Ossessa è una birra ad alta fermentazione che regala un sapore intenso, eccezionale l’abbinamento con la cioccolata fondente.

Bell’aspetto con colore mogano e schiuma beige. Al naso deciso tostato. Anche in bocca la nostra riflette l’aroma, con caffè in evidenza. Lascia un bel palato secco con un leggero retrogusto di cacao.

Good colour jet black , perfect carbonation nice and soft but not flat very drinkable its going down quick. I feel I’m drinking it too cold though its got an oiliness not creamy . good all round flavour like a stout in ireland however i am getting hints of smoke on the back of the palate. pleasant drinking though the soft smoke notes are adding even more character . I will try it agin tomorrow warmer, not at the 9c or 10 c I’m drinking but maybe 13c

Stout decente, forse la migliore prova reperita degli Archi; peccato per la carbonazione un po’ troppo

Aged sample Medium greige head, over very deep-brown, nearly black beer. Mineral water, bit mineral and lots of roasted/burnt malts. A bit of sweetness wafting in the background. Roasted, but mild, with a sweet base and again a tad salty/mineral. Quite watery, thinnish, with a pappery, sticky finish. Light - not that stout. I’m guessing the mineral hails from the water, but other tasters suggested the yeast. Mille grazie, D.& M.!
