Towey1989 (2554) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2017
Keg at The Head Of Steam, Leeds. A clear amber colour with a thick, fluffy off white head. Aroma of bready malts, Belgian yeast, vanilla, clove, some pepper, caramel, subtle dark fruits and slight spice. Taste of bready malt, dark fruits, clove, some peppery yeast, slight caramel, a little alcohol and subtle spice. Medium to full bodied and soft carbonation. A bittersweet, bready, spicy bitterness in the finish. Strong and sweet to begin and spicy and slightly bitter to end. Big, Belgian flavours of peppery yeast and clove too. Love that Ive found it on draught, served in its hourglass.

La primera vez que vi esta cerveza me impact mucho (en el Mosquito Tapas), claro por su vaso, me transport a mis aos de colegio cuando estudiaba qumica (lastimosamente en este local ya no se sirve en este mtico vaso). Luego estuvo su sabor (un poco densa y maltosa y al comienzo es un poco dulce), aroma (cereales, frutas y claro est a malta tostada) y color (beige cobrizo oscuro) con una espuma densa. Es una cerveza fuerte de origen belga que recomiendo para disfrutar con buenos amigos.
