4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle - Islay 2002 (10% ABV) Bottiglia Nº 143. Black colour with small light brown lasting head. The nose is red grape, whisky, wood and chocolate (subtle). Smells like a really nice barrel aged brew. Great flavour: A LOT of wood, dark chocolate, coffee notes and roasted malts. Whisky aftertaste. The body is medium, maybe thin for an IS, while carbonation is just average. Some improves would make this beer awesome.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Scura impenetrabile, schiuma grossolana e evanescente color tonaca di frate. Al naso torba e vaniglia. In bocca buon corpo, l’alcol scalda per bene, ancora vaniglia e legno accompagnato da note affumicate intense ma che non stancano mai, con un finale molto lungo. Birra ben fatta abbinabile a dolci al cioccolato amaro.t
