PabloZab (1430) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle 330ml (BB 05.02.2021). Bottled on 05.02.2016, 9% ABV. Completely black with large, light-brown head. Aroma is chocolate and coffee first, then it is intense roasty. Mega roasty in taste, chocolate and coffee also with subtle sour in aftertaste. Bitterness is roasty, long and agressive but the beer is smooth with nice sweetness at the finish. Realy good, complex and good balanced RIS with very good hidden alcohol that only warms a bit inside.

butelka. czarne, gruby krążek beżowej piany, śliczne koronkowanie. w aromacie czekolada, kakao, drewno, słody palone, po ogrzaniu wyraźny alkohol. w smaku subtelnie słodkie na starcie, gorzkie na finiszu, na języku wyraźna spalenizna. długo utrzymuje się na podniebieniu. nasycenie niziutkie. kernel znowu świetnie
