Kosmokrator (849) - - AUG 2, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 Denso color nero con deboli riflessi rossastri in controluce, spesso cappello di schiuma beige. Aroma caffettoso con note di cappuccino, cereali e malti abbrustoliti; gusto mediamente amaro con un finale lungo e asciutto che richiama gli aromi. Effervescenza gentile, corpo medio, struttura oleoso-cremosa... un piacevole classico!

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.
