ozzatoadisback (120) - ITALY - DEC 14, 2016
Black colour with some reddish hints if seen through light. Good and dense light mocha coloured head. Shows good retention and nice lacing. Aroma has roasted malts, coffee and red fruits. Ok but not that intense. Taste follows the aroma. Bitter and sweet notes are balanced in terms of intensity but not very well integrated. Medium bodied with light carbonation, slightly silky texture. Ok, but modest.
