Bottle, from shop in Cavalese, Italy. Deep dark pour with a small tan head. Nose was roast, coffee, malts and burnt toast. The flavour went down a similar slope with more roast and notes of dark chocolate and dark fruit. Dried out with some bitternes towards the finish. Tasty stuff. That’s er ama...mora.

Aroma has lots of chocolate notes, primarily a rich dark hot chocolate, perhaps with a hint of cinnamon. Flavour adds a fruity richness, perhaps dried fig or may be a touch of prune.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Pours glossy mahogany with a fine beige foam that recedes on sipping. Enticing sweet malt and soft brown sugar aroma with black cherry, carob, muscovado, plum and milk chocolate impressions. Good chewy sweet flavour with a plum, sweet fig, milk chocolate and dried fruit stickiness. Alcohol very well concealed but the coffee is indiscernible. Scores identically to the tinned Polish bock I had last night.

17/04 A 0.75 l bottle, courtesy of ogivlado, great thanks for another shared craft ale! It poured almost black body with thin brown head. Dog food, copper patina and coffee in disappointing aroma. Flavor was luckily much better. Coffee bitterness and acidity was well balanced with some sweeter dried fruits and wood. Medium bodied with moderate, slightly sweet espresso finish. And sure, woody nuts again. A bit too simple but good after all. For an imperial porter could be better though.

small bottle - 330ml i think. pours a very dark brown/black with a very thick head that lasts forever. extremely interesting aroma and taste. aroma is of fermented olives. not olive oil but old, black olives in vinegar. definitely not off-putting though. notes of coffee and caramel too. ok and the taste. the first sip or two were not very nice to be honest. too bitter and a bit of fermenting fruit? but after sitting for a while it was amazing. coffee, pickled walnuts, nice bite to it. very full mouth feel, like treacle. i loved it.
