didierlewallon (271) - ponferrada, SPAIN - APR 27, 2016
Cerveza de color negro-marrón opaco con una cabeza de color marrón claro, que se disipó rápidamente dejando un cordón fino en mi vaso. El aroma es de caramelo, ciruela, pasas de uvas y levadura. El sabor es levemente dulce con frutas oscuras como las pasas y los higos; caramelo y azúcar moreno, con notas de chocolate y caramelo con un final un poco seco, Es muy complejo y bastante bien equilibrada. Extremadamente deliciosa.

Dark brown color, clear body, small off-white to tan head. Pretty weak aroma, some sugar and chocolate biscuit. Same taste, only more intense. Chocolate brownies or something like that. Alcohol is very well hidden for a 10,5% ABV. Medium body, soft carbonation. Nice and tasty.

Bottle(@Alles Gärbar): Deep ruby-amber coloured, stable creamy off-white head; moderate to solid sweet fruity(dried fruits) and caramelly nose with a mild acidity (liqourice?) in the background; pretty solid sweet and slightly sourish and slightly bitter flavour, full bodied; lingering fruity and caramelly finish. Decent, maybe a tad too sweet…
