3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours in black body with high creamy tan head that’s gone within few minutes. The aroma has roasty character right in front, dominated by the roasty, in the background, there is some dark chocolate, cold coffee notes. Taste has medium roasty sweetness with very light earthy bitterness, buttery sweet notes with coffee character. Not as much chocolate as I’d like but still highly drinkable. After taste has some acidity. Body is light, carbonation medium, quite dry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and some fruit. Dark brown to black with a red tint. Tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a lively carbonation. Overall a good stout, but the carbonation should be softer in my opinion.

Dark, see through some red hue with light, beige head. Aroma gives some sweet chocolate, rye, and some citrus. Taste is licorice, very suttle lactose, rye, some roast, and cocoa. A bit too carbonated but very well balanced, and great mouthfeel

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour, silky cream colored head. Creamy lactose aroma with a bit of coffee. Flavor is a nice smooth chocolate and cherry foundation up front with lots of cream and maybe a little anise on there somewhere. Has a little of a cola finish with a pruney sweetness. Flavor is definitely on the sweet side, but the mouthfeel is light and somewhat watery. Serves it purpose. I tend to enjoy the flavors of a milk stout no matter what flaws are there and this is a perfect example. Sweet, smooth, creamy and fruity. I'm not crazy about the finish, but it's still a nice beer to enjoy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Roasty aroma of dark chocolate and coffee with hints of coriander and vanilla; big beige head, dark colour; not so much complex taste which reminds the cappuccino. High carbonation (unusual for a stout) and a "dusty" texture. A pleasant stout though not the best I’ve ever tried. I’d prefer it less gassed.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Stout perfetta nell’aspetto e nell’aroma profondo di cioccolato amaro. Un po’ deludente al primo impatto in bocca ma poi si apre per un gusto e retrogusto indimenticabile.
