Birrificio Grado Plato Strada S. Felice
Birrificio Grado Plato Strada S. Felice from Al’s of Hampden. The beer pours a murky brown color with a think filmy white head that does not linger very long. The aroma consists of a lot of caramel, raisin, fig, date, and chestnuts in the background. The taste is sweet and smooth with plenty of caramel and raisin on the front end. Some fig and dates peek through before some chestnuts dry out the finish a bit with a light alcohol burn. The alcohol content is 8.0% ABV. Thankfully the chestnuts were added to this beer, or it would be too sweet. I would put this beer in the decent category, but it wasn’t overwhelmingly memorable either.
