Deep black color with lots and lots of caramel head with great retention and leaving strong laces.
Delicious aroma of dark chocolate exchanging with roasted coffee. Notes of earthy hops, pepper and smoke.
Very strong flavor of roasted and smoked malts, with a substantial amount of grassy hops. Notes of caramel, pepper, molasses, grains, dark chocolate and coffee. Quite dry and bitter aftertaste with a residual burnt wood lingering taste.
Full body with good carbonation and a spicy feeling. Alcohol of 9% ABV was a coward against its strength and complexity.
Powerful and perfectly crafted. Smooth and assertive at the same time. Beautiful brew with a blast of flavors and hops.
