|"Rossoscura®" · Enlightenment|
|To tell you the truth, I make this beer, I appreciate it, but
I don't understand it at all.
For example, it has been proven that in certain situations it can trigger unexpected hot flashes in the drinker. In others, it has no such effect, but some people become addicted to it. There are those who find it more bitter, while others think it is less bitter. Some say it's exceptional because it 'leaves the system' immediately, while many are convinced of the opposite: it's exceptional because it lingers so long before you
People who drink a lot of it say it doesn't go to their head, except Luca, who dragged himself out of the place, mumbling that he needed a breath of fresh air when I offered him one for the road. A person capable of such admirable behavior is a true Rossoscura® drinker: one who has achieved "Consapevolezza" enlightenment, which is its nickname.
Rossoscuro® is a rather dry double malt red beer produced by way of infusion, with 5.7% alcohol by volume (15.1 Plato degrees). A smaller amount of hops (only Hallertauer Magnum) compared to Tipopils® is added, but Rossoscura® has a rather bitter taste due to the use of roasted malt.
After a rather long primary fermentation phase, the beer is matured for two to three weeks .
Water, partially softened to reach a total hardness of approximately 20 French degrees.
Hops: only one type is used, Hallertauer Magnum. Aromatic hops are not used because this beer's body and aroma must come from malt
malti tipo Pilsener, Monaco, Caramello e Torrefatto di provenienza tedesca e francese
lPilsener, Munich, caramel and roasted malts from Germany
Rossoscura® was produced between April 3, 1996 and October 27, 1997, and it very well might return in the near future for special occasions.
