3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours reddish brown, tan head. Apple and grass, some cider-like aroma coming through too (reminiscent of a local wild fruit: madroño). Caramel, dried fruits and a few hints of malt make up the perfectly balanced flavour profile - this is what we want! Smooth taste, alcohol well concealed, not stridently sharp. A bit of wood/leather with the yeasty flavour, for that mildly astringent note, giving it a very mellow background. Really nice. Oily, medium body with a nice gradual finish. No major complaints, a good brew!

Singular cerveja de abadia de sabor impecável. Apresenta moderado amargor e aroma com toques de chocolate, frutas e caramelo.

Esta deliciosa belga Dark Strong Ale tem teor alcoólico de 8%.
Simplesmente maravilhosa. Fiquei fã!
