leghorn99 (113) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 23, 2015
Versa color ebano, impenetrabile; la schiuma è alta due dita, molto densa, di un bel marrone scuro, la ritenzione è buona, che si riduce a un cappello sottile, leggera allacciatura. Aroma di cioccolato fondente, malto tostato, avena, caramello, e melassa; con un po ’di vaniglia e alcol. Alcuni aromi sono molto gradevoli, e dalla buona persistenza. In bocca inizia dolce, cioccolato fondente e farina d’avena, poi; malto tostato, caramello, melassa. Transizione ad un’amarezza decente sul finale, con sapore di caffè. Palato cremoso e liscio, l’alcool riscalda lievemente nel finale. Carbonazione media, ma senza togliere cremosità al palato, corpo medio-pieno.
