Black, just a veil of evanescent foam.
Toasted, chocolately, woody smell. Nuts, green hops, a hint of almond.
Very smooth in the mouth, the 13 ABV is very well hidden.
Again, vanilla, artichoke, dried fruit. Hops and toasted notes.
It is a continuum of well amalgamated and pleasant flavour.
Good strucuture, full, but balanced. Full body.
Toasted and chocolate in the aftertaste, and a green toastiness.
Really good.

Pours very dark, silky, with moderate viscosity. The nose is big on grape/berry and dark malts and char. The taste is dark malts and tart berries. Not sweet but not a sour either. Very natural and well balanced. An extremely well crafted. .
