Una Strong Ale oscura que hace una guiño a las mild stout. Con una espuma marrón muy cremosa y un fuerte carácter de malta, con ligero toque a tostado. Su amargor es ligero y se acentúa al final. Tiene aroma de maltas y madera quemada que se complementa con un toque de chocolate. El sabor consigue un equilibrio entre la malta tostada y el café con ese presencia de levadura belga. Amargura presente en todo momento. Final con regusto complejo y matices de regaliz.

Let sprittet med en klar lugt af frugter som dog ikke kan smages i øllen. De 8 procent kan smages

Interesting brew. Bottle reads 9% Mild Stout but I can’t find a reason to believe this is one and the same. I found there to be more going on in my glass than what I see in the deScription...I sensed a fruitiness. No bitter though not sweet, just mild and easy to drink. Though not a brew that I would seek out...I do enjoy the malt of this and didn’t have bit of a problem drinking it.

God og spændende øl. Gode smagsnuancer, men savner lidt bitterhed. Flot farve og skum.
