Misleading aroma. Molasses and.... wheat. Tastes like... flat soda? Water? I can’t taste anything. Sad. Very sad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottiglia da 50cl all’Exultate, con una pizza fantastica (mozzarella, funghi, birra, crema di tartufi); versa color rubino limpida con poca schiuma. Aroma fragrante, ben bilanciato, sapore delicato con un buon finale di luppolo convincente anche se non aggressivo, che pulisce la bocca alla perfezione. Merita.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
25-Dec-07 (500-ml bottle, Best Before Jan-08: Purchased 23-Dec-07 for $4.99 at the Pizza Port Bottle Shop in Carlsbad, CA) Let’s start with the positives. This beer has a decent flavor: earthy, very nutty, and toasty, finishing with baker’s chocolate and dry, light roastiness. Nothing too exciting, but fairly enjoyable. Similar notes of nuts, chocolate and toast in the nose, but a quick swirl releases toffee as well. Now for the not so positive. On the palate, this beer is thin, to the point of being watery, and nearly flat in regards to the carbonation level. Amber-brown in color and fairly hazy, it pours with just a wisp of heading, with a few large bubbles from my vigorous pouring. Not a bad beer, but when I bought a dark beer from Scotland, I really expected more.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Bottle. At The Flying Barrel, Gothenburg.
Brown/red color with a small off-white head. Aroma: Sweet and lightly toasted malt, figs, citrus, yeast and caramel. Flavor: Lightly roasted, light hops, citrus, yeast and sourness. A bit thin and watery, but still not bad. Reminds me a bit of a cask ale.
