fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2009
Blind tasting at Papsø’s
Black color. Light roasted malt aroma, very lightly cheesy. Medium body, but quite smooth; per se the flavor is not impressive, with just some roasted malt, but it has a quite good harmony and a light creamy impression. Quite good.
