Botella verde de 330ml. Vaso Nonic. Brota con color marrón muy oscuro y coronada por una capa bronceada que se disipa con rapidez. Aromas torrefactos y de café con trazos agrios. Sabores de levadura y algo avinados. Cuerpo ligero y carbonatación moderada/alta. La textura cremosa se torna aguada. En el intermedio, amargor floral bastante contundente, matices de regaliz, leve toque tartárico y notas de bacón quemado. Final amargo y seco. Retrogusto reseco con recuerdos de grano de café.

Bottle at Pension Ondarra, San Sebastian. Clear dark dark brown - light brown head. Sweet malty, fruity, cocoa, chocolate, roasted malts, light bitterness. Simple and a bit thin. Foffern (1909) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle at restaurant in Brussels. Pours a dark brown to black colour with a small beige head. Pretty sweet aroma of chocolate, leather, and some licorice and lactose. Flavours of roasted malt, coffee, leather and dark wood. Has a slick but surprisingly thin mouthfeel, and a very light bitterness. The aroma is good but disappoints from the first sip. Way too thin on the palate. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2012
