Good beer. Is near to be dry but not really. Smells are not excessive. The aftertaste hanging in a long time. Really good beer but would like to have a little more sweeter

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 05/04/12. Dark brown with a thin fuzzy tan head. Nose shows some dark fruits, roast, cream, chocolate. Nice smooth flavor and very easy drinking for the style and abv. Lightly nutty, lots of chocolate, roast, cream and sugar. Light bittersweet finish. Feels a little thin but good stuff no doubt.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
18 cl bottle @ home. Batch #1102: brewed 17.11.2010, bottled 17.12.2010, BBE 17.12.2035
Aroma is rather strong on cocoa – and it isn’t your typical O’Boy but very dark stuff. Also some licorice and hints of coffee. Flavour has cocoa, soy sauce, salty licorice and hints of coffee. A bit too salty but rather good anyway.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Porter fuori dai canoni, la maltatura elevata mette in secondo piano il torrefatto. estremamente dolce con un tocco di amaro che c’è ma è coperto.
