jaghana (3916) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle 33cl, a dark beer with low head. Nose is intense and complex on dark chocolate, round caramel, vanilla, wood, leather, prune, vinous on the red side, spicy, excellent.
Aroma is amazing, sweet creamy it starts with a round and buttery caramel goes through vanilla to reach a spicy and dark chocolate zone. Then prune and grapes notes arrives, wood again with light soy sauce, vinous dry pinot noir hints, creamy / oily body. Finish is again nice on wood and light peated touch, extremely well done beer, complex and easy drinking !
