3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Almoust black drink with longlasting thick beige head. Coffee and citrus are main factors in aroma. Some notes of tropical fruit and spruce as well. Aroma is well balanced but surprisingly mild. Coffee is rounded by white chocolate in the taste. Grapefruit is the main hop flavour, but some woody touch as well. A note of alcohol when the drink warms. Palate is dry and full. Great beer to enjoy.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2015 Marron oscuro, espuma beige persistente. Aroma a cereal, avena, lupulo, mandarina, cafe, batante cambiante segun se va bebiendo...en boca predominan los sabores a malta, cafe, algo torrefacto...predomina el amargor...y se nota el CO2... El final ...a cafe afrutado...y lupulo. Cerveza a mi parecer muy redonda pero llena de matices. Buena BIPa.Muy recomendable...
