biilz (758) - SPAIN - FEB 12, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2019 Аромат шикарный, много кофе и кофейных зерен, немного черного шоколада и солода, легкая кислинка. Цвет чернущий, пена отличная, мелкопузырчатая, кофейного цвета. Вкус разочеровал. Сразу много кислости от кофе, при глотке еще большая кислинка, легкие винные нотки. Послевкусие кофейное, с нотками сена и какао. Очень сильная хмелевая горчинка, которая забивает весь вкус. В общем странно, может не та бутылка попалась.
