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%

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.

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.
