Bottle. Aroma roasty, light fruits. Almost black colour. Taste is mostly roasted, quite harshly, burnt. Light fruitiness and caramel. The finish is roasty, tart, tannins. Relatively thin body. Overall good beer, but too roasted IMO.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours unclear dark brown-reddish with a nice small light beige head, showing some retention and nice lacing sticking. dark red berries, cocoa powder, spices and resin, smoke, but mostly burnt malts, tingling perfumey and peppery booze - fair amount of it, earthy and almost ashy, some sweetness - burnt caramel and molasses. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, harsh bitter coffee-resinous-ashy-piney finish. nicely crafted but not really my cup of tea.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours black with a small, mocha-colored head. Aroma is fairly roasted, quite a bit of dark fruitiness, some salty liquorice. Taste is very rich. Roast is very present as is salty liquorice, some fruitiness, orange being rather strong though dark fruits as well. Full with some carbonation. Pretty alright, if a bit underwhelming after all.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle from Portale Birra, served in nonic pint glass. Pitch black, absolutely no light passing through, with an average, persistent light brown head. Good lacing. Pretty muted aroma, definitely lots of dark, toasted and roasted malts, perhaps some bitter chocolate mousse, some booze notes. Fortunately better in the mouth, bitter dark chocolate upfront, slightly astringent, then a milky, moderate sweetness emerge. The alchool is well hidden, but it’s a warming beer, no doubt. Bitter, slightly hoppy and roasted aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Expected a bit more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Une belle petite mousse couvre un corps mi-mince. Un nez agréable typique aux stouts : café et noisettes s’y retrouvent. En bouche, l’alcool est présente mais pas envahissante : bien joué pour une 10.5%! Les noisettes s’expriment en bouche aussi. Il y a une amertûme en background qui balance bien le reste.
