COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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°.

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.

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.
