COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Profanity Stout is the first in the Williams Bros chapeau series, in which we celebrate the skills of amateur brewers whose beers we think are exceptoinal and should be made available to a wider audience. With Profanity Stout we doff our caps to Peter and Craig, the Balls to the Wall brewing duo, who developed this recipe as students on the brewing course at Edinburghs Heriot Watt University. The beer is a blend of rich coffee and intensely fruity hop aromas on a base of full velvety malty mouthfeel.

Biroholik (1035) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 11, 2016
Ekstrakt: 17% wag.
Chmiele : Nelson Sauvin, First Gold (UK), Centennial, Amarillo.
Kolor : Na pierwszy rzut oka wydaje się całkowicie czarny. W rzeczywistości rubinowy z ineresującymi refleksami.
Piana: Gęsta jak dobrze ubita bita śmietana. Piana w kolorze beżowym o drobno oczkowej strukturze. Piana cieszy oko i zachęca do spożycia - najlepiej łyżeczką do lodw;)
Zapach: Głęboki, złożony. W aromacie płynna czekolada, mid, karmel oraz kawa. Na drugim planie cytrusowe nuty.
Smak: Bardzo rozbudowany. Początkowo mleczno-czekoladowy. Przechodzi wkrtce przez kawowo-cappuccinowe warstwy. Na języku odczuwalny jest też słodki karmel, toffi oraz vanillia. Owoce tropikalne i cytrusowe są nieco stłumione, ale wyczuwalne. Goryczka jest solidna, trwała i bardzo stylowa.
Wysycenie: Niskie.
Podsumowanie:
Bardzo apetyczny Imperial Stout. Wyśmienity balans słodkiej bazy z przyjemną goryczką. Wszystko wzorowo skompomowane. Piwo jest aksamitne i treściwe. Polecam!
