Porter importante, dal gusto pieno e dal grado alcolico elevato. Al naso si sprigionano immediatamente aromi tostati e di caffè, lasciando poi posto in bocca ad aromi di frutti rossi. Una birra da meditazione imperdibile!

Black with a light, beige-yellow coloured, relatively fast fading head. On the nose complex aromas develop such as liquorice, vanilla, wood and wood-fruits. Lightly slick texture with a medium-full body with light bittereness. Well balanced with a medium finish.
