4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Not very intense. Bottle at Slow Beer. Aromas of nuts, caramel and coffee. Taste is sweet with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is oily, with a thin to medium body. Dark brown with a frothy head.

Aroma is coffee only. Faint otherwise. Dark black color. Small head. Lacing. More coffee in the taste. Some roasted barley taste.....really just a good stout. Impressed.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a large lasting head.
Nose shows complex heavy roast and roasted coffee. Quite enticing.
Very similar flavours. Quite roasty but with little roasty biterness. Some sweet malt and a fair whack of coffee.
A bit too much carbonation.
Gets a bit too sweet later.

Taste : Great coffee with light roasted malt and chocolate. A little bit grainy. Finish has nice notes of dry chocolate and coffee. Lengthy finish. Soft carbonation. Little alcohol on finish.
