Bottle from Birratrovo, ComoOakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2007
Beautiful amber color, with small and not persistent head. Aroma of caramel, with light biscuits and very light phenol. Caramel flavor, without the crystal trap; good body strength, but the mouthfeel is rather dry; strong bitterness, with some resins.
Not as hop-forward and fresh as I would like, but enjoyable though; caramelly essentially.
Cloudy dark amber. Earthy-piney aroma with bright peachy notes and dark caramel. On the palate, it has an earthy, slightly woody character, again with bright fruity accents. Lingering bitter finish. bhensonb (15345) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 9, 2011
