Ragnampiza (599) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - AUG 4, 2014
330 ml bottle from Birra+ (Bottled on 09-06-2014). Pitch black, dark and thick like used motor oil, with a small, creamy, moderately persistent light brown head. Lovely roasted and toasted smell, lots of bitter dark chocolate notes, some light vanilla and licorice presence, fudge and toffee candy, no alchool at all on the nose. Slightly warming, slick and velvety, slightly fruity (darker berries types), pleasent but mild bitterness. Extremely easy to drink for the ABV. Slightly ashy, roasted and chocolaty aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium to full body, oily texture. Excellent sipper.

Kauge (562) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle from Stockmann in Tallinn (€ 3,55), July 2014. Pours a very deep black with a huge, thick, tan head that retains very well. Nose is the usual sweet, roasty-chocolaty. Surprisingly modest even after having warmed. Taste is caramelly and chocolaty sweet, with a fair deal of bitterness in the end. I just had Thornbridge’s St Petersburg that has the same 7,4% ABV but here the alcohol is way better hidden. Clearly contains oats as its body is fairly light and so damn silky smooth and soft to the tongue. The ABV kicks in after a while when it’s warmer, both in the nose and taste, but more in the latter as a bitter, alcoholic kick. Great!
