5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Imperial stout nera ed impenetrabile, massiccia, prepotente, avvolgente e rotonda dove l’invecchiamento in legno conferisce spessore e sentori fruttati e dolciastri al carattere tostato-cioccolatoso di base. Potentissima.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flat, just a ring of small bubbles. Black with hints of deep ruby.
Complex nose. Whiskey, bourbon, chocolate, peat, licorice, ash and wood. Peat builds as it warms.
Peat at first but turns milk chocolate sweet. Caramel, licorice, char, rubber, and whiskey and bourbon soaked dark fruits.
Slick and oily. Well balanced with an ash finish.
Solid as heck, much higher if it had carbonation.
