Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle. A clear medium brown beer, with a small, frothy, almost fully diminishing off-white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/nuts, caramel), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of toffee and some dried fruits. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, average carbonation, long finish with moderate bitterness, lightly alcoholic. A beautiful color that it’s not matched by a minimal and disappearing head. Mild aroma, but pleasant. The mouth experience is better, thanks to a quite good harmony. It is on the sweet side but it doesn’t exceed. It’s more enjoyable to drink than to smell.
