In bottiglia. Aroma di tostato persistente, nocciola, frutta secca, leggero affumicato. Al palato morbida, rotonda con sentori di tostato, cioccolato, nocciola e un amaro dato dal malto che ben bilancia la birra. Ben fatta.

arminjewell (9253) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 16, 2015
Pour on tap at Crunchy’s dark black pour with caramel colored head, aroma brought blueberry, cocoa, smoke, some slight oaky notes with coffee, slight caramel, toffee. Taste was sweet cocoa, caramel into roast, coffee, smoky notes into a bit of earth and spice, finishing with a fairly overwhelming blueberry note. Very interesting brew.

(Bottle 33 cl) Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque black with a rough beige head. Sweetish aroma of hard roasted malts and some oak. Solid body with plenty of roasted malts and dried fruit - even an oaky touch. A little low in carbonation and the bitterness is subdued. Quite lovely. 220808
