2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours copper with little head. Aroma is nutty caramel. Flavor is pretty good malty, nutty and caramel. THen BAM!!! Nothing. No finish or aftertaste. It was just gone. One of the most unbalanced beers I have tried. An even 2.5 rating for half a beer.

330ml tap in Murano island, Italy 18.05.13. Dark amber reddish body and no head. Caramel and prune aroma, maybee some tiramisu. It was a warm day in Murano, after a beautiful boat ride in a packed boat and browsing about 100 different fabrics, show rooms and small shops selling glass it was refreshing and a great thirst quencher.

Bottle at Barroncina in Iowa City. Very pretty amber red pour. Flavor is all malt and caramel. Good for a few sips but generally too sweet and cloying to keep drinking.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is malt, almost like sniffing malt extract with a hint of a metallic smell and a touch of marmite. Flavour is a simple sweet maltiness and not well balanced, even for a doppelbock.
