3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottiglia da 33 cl
Molto scura, con leggeri riflessi ambrati; poca schiuma, color nocciola, volatile. Al naso il malto tostato è dominante, con sfumature di caffè, frutta secca, leggero alcool, caramello e un finale resinoso e fruttato. In bocca entra morbidissima, note di cappuccino, nocciola, frutta scura; l’amaro finale rende il tutto molto equilibrato. Bassa carbonazione, corpo medio. Ottimo equilibrio e buona struttura, di piacevole beva, anche se non molto lunga e complessa.
