guzgorog (588) - FRANCE - JAN 30, 2016
Ambrée/oorangée trouble, petite mousse blanche. Le nez est intensément houblonné avec des arômes d’agrumes, des pointes de malts grillés. Le houblonnage brutal se confirme en bouche, les agrumes et la résine sont très présents, l’amertume puissante, encore une pointe de malts torréfiés. Le corps est très puissant, liquoreux, huileux, bière un peu sucré et la longueur est fabuleuse, chaleur de l’alcool à chaque fin de gorgée. Excellente bière, quoique bien violente, à ne pas mettre dans toutes les bouches !
