This is our first of a long series of unconventional Beers that Birrificio Sottobisio is going to present time to time featured in a very special black bottle. XPOCHI is an Ale beer in Imperial Stout style with a 8.5% alcohol vol. The color is extreme black (you cannot see through it). The head is a persistent and creamy deep brown. The Aroma is close to the Sottobisio’s Stout one but without the smoky note. It’s more rounded and it reminds cacao, liquorice, Passito wine and fireplace burned aromatic wood. To the palate you’ll get first coffee, tobacco and bitter cacao with very very soft ashy note, then the main hopping comes with its British hops which clean everything but leaving again the palate free to remind coffee and cacao.. This beer will be appreciated during Autumn/Winter time with important meals or for contemplation. Recommended a serving temperature of 10-12 degree C and a tulip type glass.
