3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark mahogany color. Nutty aroma, roated malt. Caramel flavor, with some roasted malt and with an original touch, making it more easily drinkable, more dynamic. I like it.
Side note. I have at home a book about Japanese Soba noodles; it was interesting to find as a reference, in the last page, that one of the few interesting usage of Soba (buckwheat) comes from my home-place in Italy, where they cook it in a wonderful dish called "pizzoccheri".
