3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Luppolo 12 in Rome. An overall impression of strong coffee and licorice, strong chocolate, subtle alcohol, even sour notes (especially in the taste), and a spicy chili warmth - nearing heat! - in the finish. The alcohol, as said, is very subtle, and seems to complement the spiciness. It’s a surpriser, for I did not expect any of the spiciness from the nose - same goes for the "arrogant" version I’d had before. It’s got a near full - yet at points weakish - body, nearing sticky on the palate, and modest carbonation. A very good, strong, ballsy beer, and somewhat better than the version I’d had before, but I cannot help but feel there’s something missing...

Roasted chocolate aroma. Pours black with a tan head. Taste is deliciously rich. Great roast that lingers but I really don?t mind it. Some chocolate. Well maltee. A bit thin bodied. Slight Chipotle presents at end.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark black-brown color with big beige head. Aroma is espresso, very dry. Taste is espresso, feels a little bit watery, but the chili comes through then, for a nice spicy finish. A bit too light, hard to believe this is Verdi after I?ve had the BA Version. Low carbonation.
