mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Hieman punertavanvivahteinen musta olut beigellä, aika nopeasti häviävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu varsin mieto, maltainen ja hieman pistävää humalointia havaittavissa. Ei kovin erikoinen. Maku jatkaa tuoksun linjalla ja on selvä pettymys. Pistävyyttä ja hieman mausteisuutta sekä jälkimaussa maltaista makeutta. Suutuntuma maksimissaan keskitäyteläinen, tuntuu turhan ohuelta. Ongelma lienee se, että olut tuli otettua 10 asteen säilytyslämpötilasta vasta juuri ennen nauttimista. Tämä pitäisi ilmeisesti maistella huoneenlämpöisenä... Ja kyllä, aukeaahan tämä lämmetessään selvästi paremmin.

Decent tasty evening ale.
Deep nutty color with a fine tan head. Ok lacing. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium (+) body and an ok carbonation for a beer like this. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Ok complexity in the flavor. Toffee, bready, dried fruits and some chocolate.
