COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra Romano is a black saison with French Saison yeast, chocolate and black malt, lemon peel and wheat malt. It was hopped with Southern Cross hops. The name Birra Romano is a nod to the beer’s similarity to Cafe Romano, espresso with a twist of lemon. In terms of flavor, Birra Romano has some clovey spice and herb notes with notable red apple esters. Most of this is yeast character, as the only thing we added other than hops and malt was lemon peel.

had on tap at DFH brewpub over the summer. black as night beer no head. it has a peppery smell, with a caramel taste. The beer is very light and the flavor disapates in your mouth quickly.

Tap at DFH Rehoboth Beach. Poured a near black with spotty, scant, white lace. Yeast, hefeweizen aroma with banana and cloves and lemon. Taste is all hefeweizen. Really not much roastiness, coffee, or saison aspects whatsoever. Gimmicky.

Tap at DFH Rehoboth Beach, shared with tarheels86, & Lukenwhitney. Nearly completely black, scant off white head and lacing. Aroma of chocolate and pepper. Taste is caramel and peppery bitterness. Light body. Decent enough.
