Molto caffettosa, direi soprattutto nel finale decisamente tra il tostato e l’amaro pungente, non male. Parte ipa un p̣ sottotono.

Had high hopes in but it ended in a slight disappointment. Only a few moments of hops combined with a bit of coffee and quite no taste in the end. Just another average brew.
