COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with carob powder.
Birra ambrata scura dalla caratteristica originalità, prodotta con un ingrediente essenziale: la farina di carruba. Ha una schiuma densa, alta, durevole, una limpidezza cristallina; stupisce per intensità e varietà di profumi. Il suo gusto è raffinato e pieno di personalità, con un amaro elegante e una giusta ed equilibrata morbidezza: accompagna il palato per lungo tempo. E nonostante la complessità di carattere, si rivela splendidamente facile da bere. Da abbinare a piatti di carne, pesce affumicato, formaggi stagionati ed erborinati, dolci vari anche al cioccolato. Temperatura di servizio: 8-10 °C
