larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2012
Medium beige head. Beautiful deep ambery brown body. Earthy caramelly mineraly toffee aroma with nougaty marzipan notes. Wow. Dry-sweet caramelly earthy marzipan taste with roasty grainy mineraly notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish earthy roasty marzipana aftertaste with mineraly burnt caramel notes. Flavour lingers for a good while. Unusual, but really, really nice. (0.5l bottle, Absinth Depot Berlin.)
