Birra dal colore nero non pastorizzata ad alta fermentazione. La sua rifermentazione naturale in bottiglia crea una schiuma soffice e vellutata color cappuccino. Birra dal gusto decisamente pieno e corposo, con profumi che evocano la torrefazione del caff dorzo, cacao, liquirizia e rabarbaro. In bocca morbida cremosa ed avvolgente con un sentore olfattivo rotondo e strutturato. Se ne consiglia la degustazione a 12 - 14 C. Ingredienti: Acqua del Monte Nerone, malto di orzo, zucchero, luppolo, lievito e tanta passione!

Black beer, not pasteurized, top fermented. The natural refermentation in the bottle creates a soft and velvety head, cappuccino colored. Full flavored beer, with full body, its aroma reminds the toasting of barley coffee, cocoa, liquorice and rhubarb. Soft and creamy mouthfeel, with a round and structured aromatic feeling. We recommend to consume at 12 - 14 C. Ingredients: Monte Nerone water, barley malt, sugar, hop and... a lot of passion!

Tart and slight choc aroma come from this brown brew with a cream brown head. Choc flavors with a touch of vanilla and the warming alcohol. Medium body. High carb. Foamed out of bottle for awhile before I could drink it.

Echon (281) - rhus, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2016
Dark brown body with a beige head.
Rich dried fruit and malt aroma and flavour. Sweet taste with medium bitterness. Slightly boozy. Dry, alcoholic finish.
Medium body with soft carbonation.

Very tasty stout. It has some of the dried fruit flavour of a quadrupel. The alcohol is a bit too prominent, though.

Gurthnar (4535) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 11, 2016
Bottle shared by Cuso. Rather neutral aroma. Dark colour, lightly hazy. Short lasting head. Taste initially roasty, then turns to weizeny flavours of clove and banana. Good but definitely not milk stout by style.

mansquito (4942) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2016
New Beer Distributors, nYC bottle: pours dark brown with a short lasting tan head. Aroma is molasses and lots of it. Taste is just sugary and simple sweet stout. Meh.

StoutHead (939) - DENMARK - DEC 14, 2015
Bottle. Pours a murky brown colour with absolutely no head. Im not sure if I got a load of yeast in my glass or if its this colour naturally...but it looks disgusting and wrong. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste is of malt, coffee, hops, fruits and LOTS of chocolate. Full body and high carbonation. Bitter finish. Well, it looks terrible but luckily it tastes better than it looks. Its not too bad actually...perhaps it just looks that way. Just like Jessica Rabbit. But unlike this - with Jessica Rabbit I would go back for seconds. :-)

TorbenJensen (1435) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2015
It is a very carbonated sweet stout with a slight but persistent foam. The aroma is dominated by hard-roasted malts and the taste will be sweet caramel malt with light roasted notes. Also, some dried fruits in the form of figs can be felt. It is moderately hoppy and partial semi-dry. As a whole it is a good and tasty beer, but its a little too high carbonated is not as appropriate for the type.
