Flaska till dricksglas. Kanske inbillning men ganska stor skillnad mot druaght versionen. Lite mesig eftersmak utan den riktiga beskan men G är G

MartR (299) - Aespa, ESTONIA - AUG 16, 2016
Bottle. Brewed in Belgium. Builds up a nice creamy tan head. Mild roast flavor and some ashes in the finish. Dry and light palate. Even so watery it becomes distracting at some point. This is quite bland and not the same as I remember it from tap.

labeerinthum (540) - Milano, ITALY - JUL 17, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso rimanda a liquirizia, pane nero, orzo tostato e luppolo. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello è di schiuma compatta, cremosa e persistente, con bollicine medie. Il colore è scuro impenetrabile. Il corpo è pieno. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Il finale è lungo, secco e pulito. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di caramello, caffè, frutta secca e liquirizia.
