Ale in Smoked Stout style. With an interesting colour of a friar’s frock, this beer is characterised by a thick cappuccino-coloured foam. On the nose, it has smoked notes recalling scamorza and toasting notes recalling coffee. In the mouth, it’s more delicate and features notes of liquorice, cocoa and dried fruit (carob) which come along with a delicate bitter taste due to the toasting of malts. 12.5°

Bottiglia: Very dark amber coloured with a ruby sheen and a medium-sized persistent tanned head, mild - but distinctive - aromas of burnt wood and charcoal in the fruity-dark-malty nose; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, pretty light bodied; lingering dryish fruity and smoky finish. Pretty good, but a bit thin...

[ASPETTO] nero mogano; schiuma color nocciola, buona presenza, fine e buona persistenza [OLFATTO] domina il profumo affumicato, a cui fanno da contorno altre note torrefatte con note di cioccolato, un leggerissimo tocco di caffè. [GUSTO] inzio non contundente, con un torrefatto dosato che non regala immediatamente l’affumicato ma lo lascia uscire gradualmente; nel frattempo appaiono note dolci di cioccolato al latte ed una leggera astringenza. Il finale acquista un amaro leggermente più evidente, compare appieno l’affumicato e , nonostante la bassa alcolicità, si avverte una legegra sensazione alcolica. Leggera sensazione allappante che perdura nella bocca. [TEXTURE] corpo medio, morbida e vellutata nonostante una carbonazione vivace. [COMMENTO FINALE] stout affumicata, con un livello piacevole che subentra gradualmente. Mantiene una buona struttura che la eleva rispetto ad una stout classica, nonostante la bassa alcolicità.

Countbeer (5135) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle @ Kiss The Kitchen Floor or better known as ZZT VI (2013): kindly shared by IluvatarMilan: Medium sized light brown colored foamy head, changes with regular speed and leaves a thin lacing on top of deep dark brown colored beer with black tints. Aroma’s of bay leaf, liquorice, roast & smoke, darker barley malts, some darker hops and dark herbs. The flavours are a mix of liquorice, bitters, bay leaf, roasted barley malts, smoke and toasted/ roasted herbs. Aftertaste is light bitter with some bay leaf. Medium carbo, blown creamy and airy mouthfeel, good medium body and a light watery texture. Pretty good beer, specially for such low ABV.

Zzt bottle. An unsurprising strong smoky aroma, some liquourice in the nose. Taste is balanced and drinkable. Much milder smoke, hint of meatiness. Pleasant.
