COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La "Scura degli Archi", dedicata al famoso quadro di Lorenzo Viani, "l’Ossesso", è una birra típicamente Irish che riprende la celebre tipología delle stout irlandesi con i loro sapori di caffè, cioccolato e liquirizia. Meravigliosamente adalta per i freddi inverni, Ossessa è una birra ad alta fermentazione che regala un sapore intenso, eccezionale l’abbinamento con la cioccolata fondente.

Wolfbass (1166) - Firenze, - JUN 1, 2012
Bell’aspetto con colore mogano e schiuma beige. Al naso deciso tostato. Anche in bocca la nostra riflette l’aroma, con caffè in evidenza. Lascia un bel palato secco con un leggero retrogusto di cacao.

The great ChrisO pre GBBF gathering. Hazy deep amber beer, small pale tan head. Modest carbonation in the thin palate. Touch of dark chocolate. Mild citric hop. Some esters. It’s okay.

jamaty (2141) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Opaca, negra rojiza. Abundante espuma tostada. Efervescencia. Aroma tostado. Café. Tabaco. En boca inicialmente cierto tono de jarabe, para evolucionar hacia un final seco, moderadamente amargo, de stout. Bastante equilibrada, tirando más a dulce al principio y a seca al final. Buena base de malta. Buen contrapunto ahumado. Interesante.
