COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stout brewed with rosemary.

"La sua energia sovvertira’ il mondo, e durera’ piu’ a lungo della vita"
Roman Castevet

Birra scura con profumi tostati e note speziate provenienti dall’avena, il tutto intensificato dall’aroma balsamico di rosmarino selvatico del circeo, corpo medio e sensazione vellutata, schiuma persistente e omogenea, un leggero amaro nel finale ne rendono grande la bevibilitŕ e adatta a tutti i momenti della giornata nella piů classica tradizione delle oatmeal stout.

33cl bottle. Pours deep dark brown with a nice beige creamy crown. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, hops and hints of herbs. The later ones are a lot more evident regarding the flavour, even if some malts are still present. Also, the hops help in balancing the brew. No alcohol traces. Medium body, good carbonation. Pretty original, not bad.

aspetto bellissimo..scurissima con schiuma nocciola molto persistente e densissima (altro che guinness....) aroma dominato dagli amari del malto tostato e dalle classiche note tostate e di caffč..corpo pieno e gusto amaro derivante dal luppolo sicuramente ma probabilmente derivante anche dall’uso del rosmarino siccome non sono riuscito a ricollegarlo a luppoli assaggiati precedentemente (magari sono nuovi..)..col tempo sviluppa aromi e gusto piů decisi e piacevoli.. bevuta all’elfo!

Toques de regaliz en el retrogusto. 330ml bottle. Snifter glass. Enjoyed on jun´13. Deep ruby color headed by beige froth. Quickly dissipated crown leaves some lacing on sides. Aroma profile shows floral aromas, coffee grains, roasted malts & hints of burn candies, slight licorice too. Roasted malts & pleasant bitterness. Medium to full body. Moderate to high carbonation. Velvet palate. Bitter & burnt coffee grains in the middle provide dry astringency. Some licorice on the aftertaste.

DanDom (2) - Roma, ITALY - JUN 14, 2013 does not count
Bottiglia. Al naso molto ben distinguibile il rosmarino, la sensazione si attenua al palato e vengono fuori le note classiche dello stile. Registrabile una leggera aciditŕ di fondo, e un finale abbastanza astringente. Buona la bevibilitŕ, quasi assente la carbonazione. A mio avviso una birra interessante.

rosenbergh (6699) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
330 ml bottle. L014. BB 04/14. From Italy. Courtesy of Brandman. Dark brown colour with a red hue and tiny tan head. The aroma is... interesting. Or weird? Hmmm... interesting it is. Roasted malt, berries and lots of spices. Rosemary I presume. Could be also something else. I'm not that much of a cook myself. The flavour is much more heavily roasted malt, hoppy bitterness (a bit harsh) and a touch of coffee. After the interesting aroma the flavour is a bit ordinary. Not bad but not that inspring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 24, 2013
24/05/2013 Brasserie 4:20. Nera, quasi impenetrabile, schiuma leggerissima, virtualmente assente. Al naso sentore predominante di rosmarino, note acidule stridenti, poi emerge il tostato, con note di caffč. In bocca č migliore, un tostato caffettoso con note speziate, peccato per il finale veramente troppo astringente. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Servita anche un po’ troppo calda. Abbastanza deludente, pur nella sua originalitŕ. Perchč non dosare meglio gli ingredienti?
