Bruno scuro con riflessi rossastri, la schiuma è nocciola, cremosa e abbondante, poco persistente. Naso molto invitante che regala note di toffee, caramello, biscotto, noci e frutta secca. In sottofondo una lieve nota terrosa molto piacevole. In bocca si rivivono le stesse emozioni. E’ una birra morbidissima, che ha poche bollicine e un corpo medio. Nocciole, noci, mandorle avvolgono il palato accarezzandolo in maniera intrigante. Il finale si spinge verso territori amarognoli e terrosi, che bilanciano benissimo la bevuta.

12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Nutty, rich, malty, smooth and creamy. Notes of caramel, light chocolate malt, light earthy yeast and hints of roasted grain. Solid brown overall.

Bouteille achetée chez Drink Of The World - De couleur brune presque ruby avec une mousse beige qui redescend assez vite - Au nez des arômes de noix, de noisette, de fruit rouge, légère torréfaction, une point de chocolat,caramel, biscuit, sur la fin, superbe - En bouche on retrouve ce côté noisette, noix, un pointe de café fait son apparition, cacao, chocolat, biscuits mais plus de fruits rouge - Corp léger/moyen, amertume légère/moyenne, carbonation pétillante, sèche , final malté et noisette - Une bière de coeur une de mes première bière special à l’époque et je la trouve toujour aussi complexe et bien réalisée un défaut trop de carbonation pour le style et la provenance

500ml bottle, Bispham hotel, Blackpool. Pours chestnut brown. Taste is of chocolate, caramel, weak malt. I found this to be too fizzy, thin and neutral, and whilst drinkable, i was left feeling abit uninspired. Maybe it was an old bottle, and if it had been on tap i would have had a second.

Pours a glowing brown color with an eggshell colored, smooth head. Tastes of bready, earthy malts with a nice, subtle sweetness to it, revealing a toasty quality and bakers chocolate. Has a smooth medium carbonation with a soft, refreshing finish, showcasing a light, pleasantly malt defined beer. Tastes of bread, church candles and slightly chocolaty malts, which receive a good earth coating. Very rustic, yet smooth and a litte creamy on the tongue, this also features a nice toasty quality. Finishes clean and soft with a short, sweet malt peak among a watery quality. Pretty light, but well composed with a nice, bready malt profile.

I bought this bottle at drink of the world in Zürich. I drank it tonight. This beer is not bad, average. The taste is close to a German Bock. The body is brown and the foam is thin, average carbonation. The taste is a little smocked, dry malt, plum and discreet note of nuts at the final, a bit watery, some hop.
