kaserov (373) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 24, 2016
Color mbar oscuro (casi granate), translcido, con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor (buena retencin). Carbonatacin a tope (tubo de burbujas desde el fondo de la copa a la superficie). Aroma a madera, levadura y algo de alcohol. Simple pero placentero. Sabor dulce (mucho, as que al que no le guste...), maltoso, con final ligeramente alcohlico. Mucho cuerpo. Muy interesante, aunque no llegue a las expectativas que puede crearse uno. Lo verdaderamente interesante es lo peligrosa que es, pues se bebe en 4 tragos sin problema y los 8,4% pueden pasar factura rpido. Cuidadn. No la bebis a 5 ni a 6 porque se captan menos cosas que a unos 8 o 9.
