alteregoo (1083) - POLAND - DEC 8, 2016
Piana beżowa, spora, dość trwała. Barwa czarna z licznymi brązowymi refleksami. W aromacie kakao, karmel, cola, kawa zbożowa, rodzynki i wędzone węgierki. W smaku identycznie, dochodzi fajna daktylowa słodycz i popiołowa paloność przechodząca w niedużą goryczkę. Piwo jest niesamowicie pijalne, dość rzadkie, z niskim do średniego, drobnym wysyceniem. Alkohol niewyczuwalny.
W kategorii american czy milk stout to niezłe piwo, jako RIS zdecydowanie brak ciała. Prawda jednak jest taka, że browar jednoznacznie klasyfikuje to piwo do American Stoutw.
