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.

De barril con 10 meses de maduración, de color negro con espuma beige densa y cremosa, bastante persistente con aroma fresco a regaliz y romero, en boca encontramos un cuerpo medio, ligera efervescencia y final a regaliz. Muy buena!!!

Una bella sorpresa a km 0. Mariarosa si presenta scura, con una bella schiuma beige, compatta ma non esageratamente persistente. Al naso predominano note acidulo, mentre in bocca č poco corposa, valore aggiunto in questo caso, perché lascia spazio alle note balsamiche e piccanti sulla lingua del rosmarino. Il retrogusto č persistente e rinfrescante. Ottima.

Borresteijn (4927) - 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 (3480) - 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.

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!

Forse un tantino troppo estrema, ma vale la pena impegnarsi in questa sfida. Il primo colpo che va a segno č l’impatto tostato e livemente amarotico. Il secondo colpo paralizza il palato con una stoccata balsamica dovuta al rosmarino, con sentori di olio d’oliva e formaggio stagionato. Il terzo, come una ghigliottina, rilascia una nota acidula, probabilmente imputabile all’avena, che si stende sulla lingua come velluto. E’ K.O.

On tap at Hoppy Days, Amsterdam. Dark brown with a good beige head. Spicy roasted malts aroma. Caramel, molasses, roasted malts and hints of rosemary, especially towards the finish. Original.

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - OCT 15, 2013
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.
