3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost black beer with a medium and light brown head. Aroma is surprisingly mild, roasted malts, coffee, some peppermint and dark chocolate, clear sweetness. Taste has black coffee, some weird spices and peppermint. Quite smooth, medium bodied but maybe a stronger body would be better. There is something unique, maybe that’s the tobacco even I can’t find that. Basic good beer.

Not a bad beer but expected more. Probably the worst from birra del borgo (i ve had 4 before). A bit acidy, not balanced. Sweet as well. Ok to drink but not on their level.

From a bottle. Pours thick and black with a thin tan head, interesting aroma that is hard to place, roasted flavours as expected, quite smooth, worth a try.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very dark brown with a tan head that never quite disappears. Many years ago I smoked Senior Service cigarettes, and yes the deceptively mild fruity tobacco aroma they had (before lighting) is there along with some dark sugars, light roast and plums. Damn, now I want one. Silky texture, quite light bodied. Dark fruits and sugars, a touch of roast, dry moderately bitter finish with some tobacco. Interesting beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In bottiglia da 33cl. Colore nero con schiuma fine e marroncina. Aroma di tostato, tabacco da masticare, caffè. Al palato corpo medio, note dominanti di tostato, torrefatto con un tocco di tabacco e cioccolato. Nel finale si avverte leggermente del lievito che stona con il resto dei sapori.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Mikkeller Bangkok. Poured a clear dark brown with a round bubbly light tan head. The aroma is light roast, light fruit, no tobacco! The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a roasty liqourice, light red berry fruit palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Served cool so it hit the mark in BKK but lacked flavour, especially the advertised ones.
