Bottled. A very dark red-brown - almost black - with a small light brown head. Boozy aromas of chocolate, black cherry, dried fruit, and just a hint of coffee. All those aromas a present in the mouth too; a sweet start with a drier, slightly smoky finish. Excellent.

Strong aroma. Roasted. Dark black. Kinda creamy. Aftertaste is very reminiscent of coffee. I dont know if this is the right word, but there is something pure about this. Well done.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. Marrone, velata, con schiuma beige finissima, e persistente. Aroma piuttosto intenso. Caffè, cacao in polvere, toffee, frutta secca (nocciole) , leggermente erbacea da luppolo. Gusto abboccato all’ingresso, acidulo, maltato e tostato, divine amaro nel prosieguo della bevuta. Poco carbonata, molto gentile, rotonda e piena. poco calda, ma equilibrata ed armonica.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with a visible fizz and very little head. Smells like treacle with a hint of black cherry. Slightly too fizzy but fades to a pleasant creaminess. Treacly taste with slight hint of cherry. (K)

355ml bottle from the LCBO. Dec 14. Black opaque body with a thin beige head. Mostly roasty flavors, extremely sessionable, an oily texture which was perfect for the style and purpose of the beer.
