Kita (2327) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 25, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Aroma of yeast, dark fruit, caramel and honey. Pours clear dark brown color with thin creamy tan-like head and sparkling appearance. Taste starts with sweet toasted malt and caramel, follows by dark fruit and mildly burnt sugar, mouthfeel is warming alcoholic and spicy, while finish is medium grassy bitter. Full body, creamy texture and lively carbonation in palate. I haven't gotten any strength with this brew, only weak knees...
