fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como
Beautiful amber color, with small and not persistent head. Aroma of caramel, with light biscuits and very light phenol. Caramel flavor, without the crystal trap; good body strength, but the mouthfeel is rather dry; strong bitterness, with some resins.
Not as hop-forward and fresh as I would like, but enjoyable though; caramelly essentially.

Cloudy dark amber. Earthy-piney aroma with bright peachy notes and dark caramel. On the palate, it has an earthy, slightly woody character, again with bright fruity accents. Lingering bitter finish.

clear dark red, wispy beige head, streaks of drippy lace, sweet caramel malt aroma with floral hops, lots of hop flavor with mostly dry dark caramel malts and a spicy bitter character, the earthy and bitter hops take the lead but there is enough of the caramel malt to keep it from getting out of control, a hardy winter warmer
