Thnx to Roberto ( from White Pony )
Pours amber , good white foam .
Smell is bitter, heavy malts, sweet .
Taste has a bit of smokyness, but doable, even for me . Underneath than , there are some sweet malts . not as thick as expected . Little too much carbonation . Aftertaste is a bit too smoky for me ..

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Colore ambrato scuro e schiuma persistente. Profumo di miele. Al palato torba e fumo che persiste, forse un po troppo,e si unisce piacevolmente all’amaro del luppolo. 2 grandi birrifici per una grande birra.
