Birra nera, doppio malto, vicina alla tradizione inglese sia per gli ingredienti che per il lievito utilizzato. Ha conquistato il terzo posto al concorso "Birra Dell’Anno" 2008 nella sua categoria. La schiuma è bruna ma una volta compattata assume una colorazione tendente alla nocciola chiara. E’ caratterizzata da un profumo intenso in cui emergono lievemente l’affumicato, un lievissimo torbato ed una liquirizia appena accennata. Va bevuta a temperature non troppo basse, attorno ai 12/15 gradi. Si abbina con salumi, affumicati di carne e di pesce, carni rosse e selvaggina. 15.3°
Note: Formerly at 6.2% and 16°.

floydian1 (827) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 17, 2013
330ml bottle at DOC, Melbourne. This one ticks all the boxes for a decent stout with roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee and perhaps traces of nuts and raisins on the nose and palate. Finishes dry and bitter with a subtle saltiness. Medium body with clean velvety mouthfeel. Pours opaque black with medium beige head.

Undated bottle from Belmont Station with an English back label glued over an Italian one. Deep chocolate brown body with a rich mocha colored head. Faint cocoa, tar and soy sauce black malt. Dry egg shell sulfuric aroma. Dry cheese and sweat sock and balsamic vinegar isovaleric acid. Campfire ash. Burnt resin. Over-smoked vegetables and barbecue burnt ends. Soy sauce saltiness, astringent charred grain husks, texture and sourness of sour cream similar to what you see when lactic acid is used poorly. Watery black malt and burnt brussel sprout finish.

davidm (1926) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 15, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2013 Bottle in DOC. Very tasty. Aromas of caramel and liquorice, hints of apple. Taste starts sweet, with sour notes and bitterness taking over for a long finish; much better once it warms up. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Black, with a frothy head.

hawthorne00 (2261) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2011
Bottle, bb 1/12. Slow pour yields an inch of black and six of light tan head. (Later) - Aroma of nut oil, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt. Mouthfeel is at first undrinkably overcarbonated but comes good eventually and is quite oily. Taste has quite a lot of roasted bitterness with cocoa and some coffee. There’s a little plummy sweetness as well as a little apple sourness. Roasted bitterness with tobacco and licorice at the end. Pretty good once it settled.

birraiolo (187) - ITALY - MAY 16, 2011
Bevuta in bottiglia da 37,5 cl. Colore molto scuro con schiuma troppo abbondante di grana media molto persistente di color cappuccino. Profumi di frutta matura e legno, al palato un filo di acidità che lascia a sentori di frutta matura e ad una lunga liquirizia per un finale gradevolmente amaro. Nota negativa un eccesso di carbonazione.
