Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee. Flavour is roasty, lots of chocolate and coffee, leading to a dry roasty finish. A bit overcarbonated. Otherwise a very nice coffee Stout-ish Imperial Porter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very dark brown, almost black; minimal/low head. Smells coffe, licorice, smoky and a bit of dark fruits. Taste is initially coffe and chocolate, turning to a more licorice and roasted,bitter long end; sweet is balanced, with not too many notes. Oily texture and palate, soft carbonation. Quite complex and slighlty boozy. Overall, that’s a nice Italian porter!

Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Dark brown, brown head. Nose is chocolate, some roast, malt, coffee hints, booze. Flavor is similar to the nose smooth, creamy malt that somehow comes off as a bit lactic, mild coffee and roast, chocolate. Somewhat confused.

Deep black color with creamy low head. Aroma reminds me of cold coffee, with roasty character, little bit of smokey too. A lot like cold coffee. Taste has a lot of chocolate, coffee, espresso like character, from licorice to dark chocolate. Pretty good. Medium earthy bitterness in the after taste. Body is full, medium carbonation, oily texture, with evident alcohol in the taste.
