COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dal colore impenetrabile e la gradazione alcolica elevata, è ideale per affrontare il periodo freddo grazie al suo corpo ricco, morbido e cremoso e alle note tostate di caffè e liquirizia che si uniscono suadentemente a quelle mielate. Caratteristiche dovute principalmente alle tipologie di malto usate ma esaltate da un affinamento di tre mesi in botti grandi. Una perfetta birra "da meditazione" o per accompagnare splendidamente piatti importanti a base di carne dalla lunga cottura o dessert al cioccolato.

Editor’s note: wrongly listed at 10% in 2013 on the brewery website, while labels report 9.2%

Cola black beer with a dark beige head. Sweet, red berries and some coffee on the nose. Medium body. Red berries and coffee again in the flavor. Not very bitter. Some tartness but is not sour. Tastes a bit alcoholic. Tastewise this is quite simple. This is an OK but uninteresting imperial stout.

Ottima imperial stout, con un gusto molto intenso e complesso. Note di caffé, malto tostato e liquerizia dominano intrecciandosi con un leggero tocco acidulo e fruttato che vela la ben celata presenza alcolica.

PetesBeers (23) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2014
For mine, the alcohol flavour over-takes the stout flavours too much. It does leave a pleasing taste on the teeth and lips, that I can’t describe, but not a big-flavoured stout. On tap at the Wheaty.

Kauge (62) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 20, 2014
33 cl bottle from Eataly (€ 3,80) in Torino, June 2014. Pours a deep black with reddish edges and dark tan head that disappears fast. Nose is malty, roasty, alcoholic, slightly sweet of bitterish dark chocolate. Rather robust. More dark fruits as it warms. Taste is more on the sweet side. Chocolate, cocoa, caramel, also plum + chocolate liqueur. Medium to heavy body, not much carbonation though crisp when swallowed; disturbingly oily mouthfeel. Metallic aftertaste with lingering alcohol. A tough one. The Soviet-style label is perfect for this boozy hardass.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2014 Bottiglia bellissima che rapisce al primo sguardo. Schiuma leggera, profumo intenso e pungente. Note maltate e torrefatte con una preponderanza di liquirizia, persistente anche nel retrogusto. Ottima imperial artigianale.
