COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pane liquido
Morbida ma secca, fine ma rustica, semplice nella complessità, ha in sé tutta la freschezza e il calore del pane; ma il pane nero, dai grani scuri, dal sapore di cereale tostato e il richiamo famigliare al cacao e caffè. Più una forza grandissima: l’immensa facilità di bevuta. Pane liquido quotidiano.

Pan nègar sta per pane nero, quello povero, dei contadini, tradizionalmente fatto con il grano saraceno, a richiamare il forte legame della birra con il pane e la sua natura popolare e quotidiana.

È birra nera simile a una stout, caratterizzata, oltre che dai malti torrefatti, dall’uso del grano saraceno e dei fiocchi d’avena.

Kosmokrator (460) - - SEP 30, 2012
Alla spina. Color mogano mediamente intenso con uno strato di schiuma beige di medio spessore. Aroma di malti tostati, cereali, caffè e più tenui sentori nocciolati; gusto dolciastro con note di cereali, pane nero e cacao amaro, finale più dolce e un po’ pasticciato. Setosa al palato e di corpo medio, ha le caratteristiche di una oatmeal stout ma necessita di qualche ritocco.

brianza_ale (81) - ITALY - JUN 7, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 Deep black colour, 2 cm light beige head, creamy and very thick as a real stout should be. Smells roasted malts, huge buckwheat, bit of coffee and licorice, smokey, which all combined give the beer an awesome "dark wholewheat bread" aroma, deep bready yeasty aroma. Tastes initially bready, little watery and very delicate then turns to the more pronounced coffe, toasted and licorice notes, followed by a light bitter long finish. It seems that I’ve just eaten a piece of toasted dark bread, as the name "Pan nègar" litterally says (in the Italian "Brianza" dialect, region where Menaresta brewery is) . Light body and carbonation, no sweet notes at all. Nice English Stout , but with a very nice original (Italian :D) touch

Roasted/toasted aroma, very coffee-like flavor with a slightly sour finish. Good italian stout, low alcohol and easy to drink maybe a bit too watery.

Ragnampiza (349) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - NOV 14, 2013
330 ml bottle from beer-shop.it, served into a pint glass. Pitch black with some red tinges to it, fluffy and huge light beige head. Great lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, milk chocolate, coffee powder, smoked meat. Surprisingly over carbonated for a dry stout, and I wasn’t expecting that level of bitterness as well. Almost watery body, great drinkability and just the right amount of flavour for such a low ABV beer. Nice one.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 20, 2013
Deutlich malziger Antrunk, erfrischend doch die hopfige Bitterkeit. Rund, würzig, passende konstante Röstigkeit. Gut. 11/8/11/9//9

Silvan7 (656) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle @ bere buon birra. profumo di stout, focaccia alle olive e pane abbrustolito. color nero quasi impenetrabile, schiuma color cappuccino. gusto in lineaa col nome. sa di cereali tostati , ed è piacevolmente amara grazie all’uso dell’avena, più che a quello del luppolo. complessa ma di facile beva.
