This dark beer has been brewed with careful attention in accordance with our age old brewing tradition. It is a flavourful beer, tasting slightly bitter-sweet.

Colore di un bel marrone mogano, schiuma cremosa e di buona persistente. Al naso offre vari sapori di frutta mista, caramello e spezie. In bocca si riconosce il malto, che balla tra cereali rossastri e cereali più scuri. Sapore fruttato ben rappresentato: uva, piccoli frutti di bosco e zucchero candito. Sapori speziati: anice e liquirizia o qualcosa di simile. Il corpo è medio-pieno, con una trama moderatamente frizzante e semi-cremosa. Una finitura leggermente piccante, insipida e piuttosto calda.

Beardbeerman (271) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Intense and complex floral nose that I liked a lot. The taste is light with hints of honey and caramel (a bit too sweet to my liking). Overall good but not great.

Bottle 33cl. Not too dark brown with a creme coloured head that stays somewhat. Aroma has nothing special. Yeast and malts, but not very explicit. The taste mildly sweet, with a mild bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice one.
