Holmen1 (5489) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2016
Flaske (thanks, Cimbasso!), hjemme: brunsvart med rubinrdt skjr og flott beige skum som varer. Deilig aroma med rstet malt, kaffe, mrk karamell og noe braktig. Lekker og ganske slank smak, hvor jeg finner sviskeplommer og mrk sjokolade i tillegg. Elegant bitterhet i avslutningen, som er ganske trr tross sdme-elementene i smaken.
