330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Big bold beer with a strong rich creamy mouthfeel and long finish with lots of chocolate and vanilla in the flavour. Big alcohol kick that sits in the mouth well.

9.2% Bottle from Rakuten. Inky black pour, tan head and a rich chocolate aroma with a touch of roastiness. The flavor is bitter coffee, roastiness and a chocolate finish. A smooth velvety mouthfeel which is nice and thick. A substantial beer which would probably taste great poured over vanilla ice cream. Very nice. Another solid beer from Birra del Borgo. I really wanted to use these bottles for my homebrew but alas it uses a non-standard cap like many Italian craft beers...

Bottle ? ml
Medium bodied with dark malts. Alcohol medium potent. Decent woody hints behind. Well refined set up. Surprisingly easy going for its strength.

Bière noire avec un nez frais de grains rôtis. En bouche, la texture est ample et quasi crémeuse. Des saveurs de café et de fumée s’alternent. La balanc est élégante. J’apprécie le portrait.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours jet black with steady carbonation and a white foamy head. A bit of chocolate & coffee in the aroma with plenty of dried berries & citrus hops. Well balanced with a bitter finish. For 9.2% abv, very easy to sup, quite thin palate for the abv. Enjoyed this

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Jet black pour with little to no head. Nose doesn’t have an awful lot to it...dry roasted malt and licorice. Taste is very smooth. Not a massive stout to what I was expecting. Sweet taste but lacks that strong bitterness and roastyness. Easy drinking stout and cool bottle
