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.

rosenbergh (7361) - 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

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2013
33cl bottle @ Il Prestesto, Bologna. BB 04/2014. Brune foncée, col fin beige disparaissant vite. Arôme est profond malté, qcq notes de grillé avec un bouquet herbacé de romarin. Ce dernier est bien présent sans pour cela finir par dominer les malts. Palais est épais avec un profil de bouche offrant une certaine longueur chocolatée, léger grillé avec presque une touche anisée. Cela se ponctue par un léger ajout de romarin qui arrive juste en fin de bouche. Effervescence reste assez faiblarde avec une petite note tourbe pour ponctuer le tout.

Borresteijn (4917) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2014 On tap at Hoppy Days. Black colour, dense creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, mocha, coffee beans. Flavour is medium sweet, roasted malts, bitter chocolate, mocha, burnt caramel, nice malty bitter finish. Medium-bodied, very tasty. Not much rosemary detected. Re-rate, second glass a week later, fresh keg I guess: Lots of rosemary in both aroma and taste, light resinous, it does dominate here a bit too much. Still really nice though.

JulienHuxley (3459) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
On tap at Hoppy Days. Black pour with a rich creamy brown foam. Aroma is nice and roasty, dark chocolate notes, light leathery notes, maybe even a hint of smoke. Taste is bitter, dark malt bitterness, quite roasty, nice sweetness as well. Where are the herbs? Nowhere to be found and that is quite alright. Palate is creamy, soft carbonation. Nice stout.
