rumore (800) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 26, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours black with modest light brown foam, come. Aroma is weak of dark chocolate and vanilla. Body is tendentially light with good carbonation. Taste is sweet at first, but then the toasted feeling takes over with some bitterness. The latter is quite long in the finish.

zbyszek_cz (134) - POLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Piwo na pewno warte uwagi ale mocno przeszkadzało mi w nim uczucie piwnicznej stęchlizny. Bardziej w zapachu. Poza tym w nosie dało się wyczuć sporo czystego kakao, popiołu, lekki dym tytoniowy. W smaku podobnie, pierwsze odczucie to popiołowa paloność, bardzo wytrawne. Sprawia wrażenie mocno mineralizowanej wody. Jednak jest też przez to trochę wodniste. Fajnie pijalne, niewysoko nasycone. W sumie to bardzo poprawne. Jednak ta mineralność i lekka stęchlizna mi trochę odebrały przyjemność przez co obniżam lekko ocenę.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Znakomity Porter angielski. Kawa, paloność, dym. Wyraźnie wytrawny, pijalny jak diabli.
