330ml Bottle - Black with a tan head. Vinous fruits, plain chocolate and whisky in the aroma. Rich and somewhat grainy taste with plain chocolate, raisins and a hint of coffee standing out. The whisky notes can be detected in the finish but are not as strong as in the aroma.

Kita (1990) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours black with small totally diminishing light brown head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of heavy roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, whiskey and wood. Taste starts with moderate sweet roasted malt, coffee and chocolate, follows by dried fruits and licorice, mouthfeel is warming alcoholic, while finish is moderate bitter. Not a paradox, just excellent...
