Bottle, Total Wine. Light bodied but clinging sweetness and harsh spices keep it interesting. Good clean flavors. Toasted bread, caramel, chocolate, coffee and a slight hue of hops. Over-ripe plums, port and smoke balance it out. I can pick up the coriander but it’s mellowed by clove and licorice. Solid dark ale. Loving these Traditinal Ales. 19Oracolo78 (208) - ITALY - MAR 2, 2017
Birra dal color marrone scuro. Schiuma beige, cremosa e persistente. All’olfatto sentori di frutta secca, caramello, malto tostato, lievemente speziata. Al palato corpo pieno, venature dolci ed alcoliche, caramello, toffe e liquirizia. Un’ottima birra da sorseggiare, causa la sua alcolicità e il suo corpo.
