Kamikaze_A6M5 (12) - - JUL 4, 2015
Miltei musta, öljyinen ja läpinäkymätön olut kaatui lasiin muodostamatta vaahtoa. Ensinuuhkaisu toi mieleen juuri avatun kinkkupaketin, mutta tarkemmin siinä oli mietoa marjaisuutta. Maussa oli hyvällä tavalla sekavasti kaikkeutta. Miten tätä lähestyisi? Vahva, täyteläinen, terävä ja kuivahko, höysteenä aromikas ruis ja hedelmäinen jälkimaku. Onnistuu olemaan pehmeä ja paksu, mutta kuitenkin keveän makeankatkera. Havuisuus löytyy espresson takaa. (31.1.2015)
