On tap @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a dark brown colour, small tan head. Aroma is medium malty, with notes of roasted malts and little notes of chocolate and coffee, and little hoppy, with little notes of herbs and resin. Taste is medium sweet, little bitter, quite well-balanced. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From 10/9 notes. Pours blackish brown with big foamy head. Nose is cocoa, vanilla, also getting some chemical, plastic, paint aromas, a little harsh. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation, very bubbly on the front of the palette. Seems a little over-carbonated actually. Taste is roasty, cocao, cream, chocolate syrup. Finish is little bitterness with some sweet chocolate notes, toasted almonds, a little sticky. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but this isn’t very good.

Thin tan head. Clear deep amber pour. Chocolate in the aroma. A bit thin for a stout but still nice.

Bottled 330ml. -at La Cerveteca Barcelona. Dark brown/almost black coloured, small cappuccino white head, mild coffee/chocolate nose. Light roasted malt, coffee and chocolate taste with notes of chicory and subdued caramel. Pretty high carbonation for a stout but all in all pleasant one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is a bit too chocolatey and heavey for me. It is fresh as well but I wouldn’t get it again.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottiglia 33cl @ Folkstudio.
Scura quasi nera con schiuma evanescente.
Birra molto buona con un paio di difetti, tenuta della schiuma e soprattutto una carbonazione eccessiva.
Davvero notevole però per tutto il resto.

Pours a dark hazy brown colour with little or no head. Quite a rich taste with a little sweetness and a little bitterness.
