Doftar katrinplommon. Fyllig söt blommig smak med en aning kamomill och parfymerad tvål. Besk avslutning och karamell. Läskande god, men en flaska räcker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oscura, casi negra. Dos dedos de espuma ocre. Muy cremosa. Y que permanece hasta el final. Excelente aroma. Potente muy lupulado, frutal, uva. Rica rica en boca, equilibrada manteniendo rico tono frutal con base de malta, café y algo de tabaco. Superbebible. Superagradable Absolutamente recomendable.

Bottle. Lovely deep garnet-amber hue, lasting tan head. Big fruity nose, melon and cooked field berries, malty bready undertones. Caramel and fruity hop character, hints of cocoa, earthy tannins. A surprisingly hoppy brown ale with soft fruit character and gentle bitterness. Actually very nice.
