3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy light amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet caramel malt with huge caramel malt presence with just the right amount of residual sugar. Taste is also a strange mix between some caramel malt with a right balance of residual sugar with a light hoppy finish and some dry figs and plums notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Hard to categorize but well worth drinking.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Pikkulintu) Poured dark brown and cloudy. Head was medium sized and white. Aroma contained intially malts and molasses and after the beer had warmed up a bit the aroma was dominated by paint thinner. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, paint thinner, raisin, mild roastedness, boiled vegetables and mild bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. If you drink this drink it very cold and really quickly.

Shared with James. Murky brown purple pour with ample near white. Sweet tart and woody bourbon notes. Fruity tart funk on the tail. Fairly unusual. But good carbonation. One of the better Italian Brews I’ve had.
