3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 Beautiful reddish-brown with a rocky foam on top. Odd aroma includes some bright fruity hops which follow into the flavor, but both aroma and flavor favor the malt. Dry and toasty, some carmel and a plum kinda fruitiness. Fairly light in body. Dry finish. Very good, but maybe too dry and not malty enough for my taste.

Dark brown colour with almost no head. Aroma and flavours of hops, roasted malts, some dark fruit notes and citrous. Well done balance betwen maltiness and hoppiness, but still something missing. I was not impressed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Color marrone chiaro, mediamente carbonata, schiuma color nocciola abbastanza fine con una persistenza medio-bassa.
Al naso caramello, uva passa e note citriche.
In bocca inizialmente prevale il dolce del malto, successivamente la bevuta è equilibrata dall'amaro dei malti tostati (cacao) e dalle note citriche date dai luppoli.
Corpo medio che lascia un retrogusto dolce estremamente gradevole.

Bottle. Pours a brown mahogany clear colour with large foamy tan head which soon goes down leaving a lingering top. Aroma is rich malt, molasses and slight citrus notes. Taste is sweet and bitter, nicely balnces providing complexity. Substantial mouth feel, quite slick and nice. Overall this is a fine beer, what I have come to expect from this brewery.
