Biroholik (876) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Draught @ Russian River Brewing, Santa Rosa, California (20.04.2016)
Aromat bardzo ubogi i mało intensywny. W smaku gorzka czekolada, kawa, palone słody. W tle nuta kwaśnej wiśni. Finisz wyraźnie przyprawowy. Czuć szczypnie w język od pieprzu. Pełne ciało. Gorzki, bardzo wytrawny finisz. Mało przyjemny porter...5,75 % alk. 14 BLG
