MarcinG (476) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2016
Butelka 500ml. Czarne o szczatkowej brazowej pianie. Aromat kawy czekolady lukrecji i palonych cukrow. W smaku podobnie . Kawa i czekolada. Alkohol w tle nie przeszkadza. Po glebszym zastanowieniu stwierdzam ze w glebi wyczuc mozna lekki zapach kuwety lub moczu. Ogolnie ok ale wrazenie zapachowe psuje powyzsze.
