Bottiglia. non in stile con le dunkel cui ero abituato, è più simile a una stout con poco corpo, il tostato fatica a uscir fuori, ma a parte un po’ di metallico non è malvagia

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dense black, tan sponge finger of a head. More grilled toast than roasted nose. Initial taste continues this, like a burnt bit of Naan bread soaked in dark malt. No real refreshment but not overpowering you with flavour from all corners. Mid-range of slight tang, some fruit. Finish dry, but not fully roasted. Smooth prune vibe going on, little cream coming through from the head.
Thank feck this was on tap at the festival, alongside the traditional Super Bock, for the same price. Worth the extra walk for a tap pouring it. Quenching enough when adjusted to and also sat well in a plastic pint glass in your hand for twice as long as the regular, quickly flattened effort. A wee place in my heart for this.
