Direkt vor Ort frisch vom Hahn getrunken. Tiefschwarz mit dünner Schaumkrone. Dezente Nase. Aber dafür gut ausgeauter Körper, der den Alkohol gut überspielt.

kaserov (1025) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 15, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (cremosa y de buena retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa casi cremosa. Aroma a malta torrefacta, chocolate, ligerísimo ahumado y licor. Tanto en aroma como en sabor parece que el alcohol es superior a 6,5%, sin llegar a ser excesivo en ningún momento. En boca mucha malta torrefacta, chocolate, café y licor. Final de amargor pronunciado con retrogusto a café. Seca.

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 15B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown (BBF 15.10.17). AROMA: medium roasted aroma with coffee and chocolate notes. slight nutiness and fruitiness (dried grapes) with a slight sweetness. APPEARANCE: dark brown to black color with ruby highlights. Medium moussy light brown head with good retention. TASTE: similar to the aroma with medium roasted notes (coffee and slight dark chocolate). medium bitterness with an almost dry and roasted/bitter finish. PALATE: medium-light body with medium-low carbonation. no astringency. OVERALL: a good stout but NOT imperial (and with a bit more alcohol for the irish stout style).
