Dark brown color, hazy, with small head. The aroma of roasted malts is quite dusty, ashy, earthy, but with a degree of complexity; it also has a light lemony touch. Dry mouthfeel; the mild roasted barley flavor is complemented by a strong hopping with soft resins and evident citrusy character (lemon peel); long final, hoppy and roasty, very dry.
Although this is not my style, it’s a great beer indeed; original, surprising.
