Dobre piwo o miedziano herbacianej barwie, prawie bez piany. W smaku prazone orzeszki, karmel i spora dawka goryczki. Wytrawne i solidnie gozkie. Nice One.

jamaty (1248) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
Color caoba. Limpia. Abundante espuma ocre, bastante cremosa. Aroma poco marcado. Buen punto de gas en la boca, poco cuerpo. Ligera. Sabor contenido, pero realmente agradable. Tostado muy malteado. Buen punto entre dulce y amargo, y ligeramente especiado y un punto picante. Buena ale.

Imaena (2083) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle. This was a really disspointing bitter that was thin and boring. Nothing better than the macro bitters.

A bitter wich flavour resembles more to a brown ale, but with a strong astringent that claims its true origin.
