Very Robust Porter
La luppolatura a freddo (dry hopping) fatta con luppolo americano dona note aromatiche agrumate che ben si sposano con la tostatura della Barabba.
Nel bicchiere si distingue per un colore tonaca di frate, sormontato da un cappello di schiuma fine color cappuccino.
Al palato si rincorrono i sapori del dolce maltato, della liquirizia, del caffè, del cioccolato amaro, delle noci e del rabarbaro

yngwie (15764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 15, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, dark brown beer with a dense, dark beige to tan head. A fruity touch in the aroma, sort of unusual but pleasant, coffee, licorice and something smoked too. The flavor has licorice, roasted malts, hints of coffee, a nice hoppy bitterness and fruity touch. Full-bodied and dryish even though it’s quite sweet. Some sourness and alcohol. Overall, a pleasant and tasteful, slightly unusual, but I like it. It would be nice having it again diving deeper into it. 110415

FatPhil (11836) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 11, 2015
Tap (St. Urho’s Porter & Stout Days 2015)
Quite aggressive aroma, lots of burnt roast, tons of esters, and a whole load of aromatic hops too. Tons of esters in the mouth too, some wafts up the nose give clue to the strength. Lots of dry powdery coffee grounds and hop bitterness. Big roast, quite burnt, with the hops, it’s tickling astringent. Maybe I’m getting drunk, but I like the challenge to drink the next glug. I can overcome your bitter hoppiness by drinking more of your hoppy dark beer! And it seems to work. Thumbs up to the brewer and the recipe, you’ve created a chinese finger puzzle for fatphil.
