3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Impenetrabile e scurissimo color bruno con un sottile cappello di schiuma beige. Al naso emergono subito forti sentori di espresso e fondi di caffè, accompagnati da un più morbido strato sottostante di cacao amaro e malto tostato; gusto caffettoso e maltoso con note più dolciastre di cioccolato fondente, lattosio e un pizzico di lievito, finale amarognolo. Corpo medio, abv ben mascherato, struttura oleosa e "liscia" pressoché priva di effervescenza. Meno complessa dell’atteso, sinceramente mi aspettavo qualcosa di più e la sensazione al palato mi lascia parzialmente deluso.

I have no idea if I’m rating the correct beer here. It came out of neat little green bottle, if that helps. Black, decent head. Rich coffee and chocolate aroma. Oddly light bodied Flavor is rich earthy coffee and dark chocolate.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Completely black liquid with a small bubbly beige head at first. It soon vanish into nothing. A double mixed feeling about this one. Admit it was to cold at first. Coffee and strong grassy. I do not fancy grassy beer. Well I could not pour it into eternity. So I sipped on. After a while it was really warm and absolutely all carbonation had vanished. Well it was not much at first either. The warmer it got, the better it tasted. Less grassy. More coffee and mild pleasant fruity notes. A nice coffee with alcohol. The alcohol was dangerously well hidden. Full to medium body. Moderate sweet.
