Grande Coffee Stout. Aroma di malto tostato e caffè. Nera con schiuma marrone. Al palato malti tosti e caffè. Emerge una nota di caramello e poi il caffè. Anche un pò di cioccolata fondente e il caffè. Ho detto il caffè? Io amo il caffè. Scherzi a parte ottima stout.

33 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 01.12.2012
Flavour is slightly sour with coffee, some oaty notes and dark chocolate. Flavour has coffee, some jalopeno‐like vegetables typical to coffee beers, mocha and dark chocolate. Palate is too foamy. I like the coffee notes here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep blak umber color with a three finger foam that stocks and settles in for the life of the beer. Aromas are soil, spent coffee grounds, a touch of sweet malt and vanilla bean. On the palate its bubbly and medium bodied for a stout... nice coffee flavors mingle with chocolate and some dark roasted earthy malts. Good balance of sweet and bitter on the finish. Nice !

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared at local beer tasting october 20th 2012. Black body, creamy light brown head. Aroma of fresh espresso, malts, chocolate. Taste is roasty, espresso still showing, with cream and caramel, as the beer is probably too cold it resembles ice coffee a bit. Carboation is good, and a massive body for 5,2%. Ends roasty and dry, a very nice stout.
