Bellaspetto con colore mogano e schiuma beige. Al naso deciso tostato. Anche in bocca la nostra riflette laroma, con caff in evidenza. Lascia un bel palato secco con un leggero retrogusto di cacao.

jamaty (2098) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Opaca, negra rojiza. Abundante espuma tostada. Efervescencia. Aroma tostado. Caf. Tabaco. En boca inicialmente cierto tono de jarabe, para evolucionar hacia un final seco, moderadamente amargo, de stout. Bastante equilibrada, tirando ms a dulce al principio y a seca al final. Buena base de malta. Buen contrapunto ahumado. Interesante.
