Bottle from Birra ed oltre, Naples
Dark, almost opaque brown color, small off-white head. Milky, toasted, a bit ashy and licoricey aroma. Medium-bodied. Flavor has almost burned dark malts, bitterness, coffee and alcohol. Slightly tarry, perhaps a bit milk stouty too. Quite strong and intensive porter but more on malty than hoppy side.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very close to black body with a small, short-lived, medium brown head that reduces to a partially covering layer, some lacing. Amazing and intense aroma with roasted aroma with dark caramel and dark chocolate. Coffee, liquorice and smoke in the back. The taste is moderate sweet and the long-lasting finish is heavy to light bitter. Very strong flavours that follow the aroma, but with more coffee and also some dark berries. Fairly well-hidden alcohol. Close to full-bodied, oily texture and very soft carbonation. A wonderful brew!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ home. Schiuma beige, finissima, quasi cremosa, molto persistente. Birra di colore marrone scuro, opalescente. Profumo di tostatura, di frutta secca, di liquore aromatizzato al caffè e di legno bagnato. é un profumo intenso ed abbastanza persistente. Il gusto è dolce abboccato, abbastanza amaro, avrei scommesso molto di più visti i 60 IBU e l’abbondante tostatura. Sono potenti il gusto di liquirizia e la nocciola. Il gusto è intenso e abbastanza persistente. Nel retrolfattivo si sviluppa un bel gusto alcolico/amaro di mallo di noce. abbastanza corsposa, con carbonatazione piuttosto decisa. Equilibrata (alcool e amaro sono bilanciati fantasticamente) e molto armonica
