Stout di buona intensità, caffè e cioccolato in dose parsimoniosa ma ben calibrata, malto, avena, zucchero a velo. Non impazzisco per lo stile classico ma questa è molto piacevole.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sheer milk chocolate, roasted barley, malted milk, cashew pralines, and milk caramel contrast with surprisingly dank, almost fruity/citrusy hops that yield fresh orange peel, grapefruit, and grassy notes. Baffling and a bit messy, but very engaging. The mouthfeel is creamy, with moderate carbonation and a medium body. The taste is medium, roasty bitter that devolves into milky, chocolatey sweetness, culminating with a slightly tangy finish suggesting citrus notes and buttermilk underneath the roasty, cerealy, chocolatey main act. It demands your attention. Otherwise, it can come off as messy. But oh it got me.
