3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark roast and coffee notes on the nose with some earthy notes as well, possibly a touch of spice. Dark brown pour, sadly no cappucinno like foam head, really not much foam at all actually. Earthy, chocolate notes, with a hint of peppery flavors, but not spicy hot at all. Compliments the beer extremely well. Earthy throughout. Drinks nicely.

330, I think, capped shared by Tom. Black coffe with tight small light tan head. Dry roasty coffee with some waxiness. Somewhat light and thin but good carb. Kind of a one dimensional roasty porter, but no flaws.

Bottle@ Enoteca Decanter, Milan. Poured a deep black colour with a nicely lingering tan head. Aroma packed with big roastiness, dark chocolate and berry fruit. Gorgeous silky smooth mouthfeel. Luxurious and warming. Gently sweet flavour with more roasty action. Nicely placed spiciness lurking. Expertly balanced and very enjoyable stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A huge beer. Tasted both on tap (at BQ, Milan) and in bottle. The most impressive and relevant thing about this beer is the persistent and quite strong pepper finish, which is a real surprise after the first taste. Roasted and malty aroma , with relevant dark chocolate hints. Interesting head.
Overall, a must try: love it or hate it, this beer is extremely unique and you won’t easily forget it.
