zaf (248) - ITALY - SEP 18, 2014
aroma di vaniglia e liquirizia,caffè poco presente..scura/marrone con schiuma a grana media di color nocciola/panna,poco persistente..gusto dominato da liquirizia,troppo pronunciata..amaro nel finale ma ben bilanciato dal dolce del malto..porter strana,ma devo dire che è anche la prima volta che scelgo una porter vera e propria,quindi devo dedurre che mi sento più da stout/imperial stout che da porter. nel complesso però è una buona birra
