Silvan7 (1108) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle @ home. Profumo intensamente affumicato e torbato. Note di caffè tostato e alcoliche. il luppolo erboso è un sottofondo, non punge. Nera con riflessi rosso rubino, schiuma color cappuccino ampia e meno cremosa di quello che si aspetterebbe. Gusto caldo, deciso, torbato avvolgente. é delicata, con un finale lungo una carbonatazione medio bassa, non troppo corposa e calda/alcolica. Buona ma non eccelsa.
