3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Jet black colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting & lacing, tan head. Dark malty and fruity aroma, notes of dark berries, bramble, huckleberry, their corresponding shrubs, some chocolate. Taste is slightly sweet dark malty, dark berry notes of blue- and blackberry again, milk chocolate, dry overtones of fruit parings and shrubs; long lasting finish, sweet film remains on the lips; sadly the lively carbonation inhibits the exhaustive grasp of the flavours present.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A black beer with a huge and beige head. The aroma has roastiness and sweetness, ginger, and some spices and fruits. Taste has strong roastiness, ginger, herbs. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Good beer, even the ginger should be milder but that isn’t spoiled the beer. Not balanced.

Veramente bella scoperta. Birra che al naso presenta i canditi, caffè e liquirizia, un po’ di orzo. Nera impenetrabile, bella schiuma. Buono il mouthfeel, comincia con un po’ di canditi e more, vaniglia. Finale amaro, buonissimo corpo, arriva tanto caffè ed anche della cioccolata. Carbonatazione medio bassa, buona birra.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 33cl bottle. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a huge brown foamy head that seems to last forever. Lots of dark and sweet fruits aromas with light roasted notes and very light alcohol. Taste is strong roastiness, with some coffee and smoked flavors developing into a nice final bitterness with some coffee again. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Very good.
