Lovely powerful aroma. Chocolate coffee roastiness. Taste is hop bitterness as roasted barley tannin at front. Residual sweetness combined with hoppy finish. Creamy stouty body and texture Original1920 (7) - - MAY 7, 2017 does not count
Color: The color is a bit dark glue. Pure, clear liquor. Under the light you see countless ruby reflections.
Foam: Dark gray, fine-grained, fluffy and abundant. Foam seems to have no end. She surrounds the wall of the cup with huge chains. A thick, at least 3 cm shell is hanging over the beer. Revelation!
Smell: Simcoe Till and Die! A very resinous aroma, strong decayed scent of pine twigs. At the opposite pole, chocolate dessert notes, a touch of citrus and spicy hops. On the gray tip of a lightly scorched caramel.
Taste: Taste primarily resin, forest, pine needles and larch. Continue with single citrus and spicy notes. There are also some dark malts and roasted corn, and hence the suggestions of roasted sunflower. Burnt caramel also present in large quantities. Gentle is massive, a little too long. Finish long, slightly astringent, eminently resinous, and also burned with malts. Moderate body, oily texture. Strongly iced IPA, very bitter
Saturation: low to medium. winterluso (3) - PORTUGAL - MAY 7, 2017 does not count
