Hopmaestro (351) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2015
This gentleman has an aroma from deep malt, bread, dades and figs. The taste swoops in like a thick wave of caramel sauce draped in raisin fluids. There’s a hazelnut and almond oily texture and the aftertaste is rich and sweet from dark fruits. Maybe a little too sweet? Jolly good show sir!!
