SERVICE TEMPERATURE: 9-11°c
“This is a “smoked ale” amber beer produced with smoked malt, that recalls the color of molasses with reflections of a nice bright warm orange color. The olfactory finesse is pleasant with hints of smoked, wood smoke and bonfire that combine the warm tones of caramel with the fruitiness of apple pie. The taste is sweet with complex expressions ranging from cherry to raisins reminding the peat smoke of a whiskey finished in cherry barrel. The bitterness is perceptible and the persistant structred body leaves a long lasting retro smell.”
