3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bb11/2017, grazie mille d’inverno ad idiosincrasia. - Oily shoesole brown pour. Smells of caramelised raisins with some burn, milk chocolate, old leather, allspice, homemade lemonade. Buttery, whole milk hot cocoa in flavour, quite full and oily in mouthfeel, masking some of the more subtle exotic fruit flavours. Would not have been able to tell that this contains both ginger, raisins and orange peel, but given the confused milkshake of flavours midway between spiked porter, black IPA and rootbeer, it certainly makes sense.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nera impenetrabile con un manto di schiuma nocciola. Al naso gli aromi speziati e frutta candita. In bocca è dolce e morbida con forte presenza di cioccolato al latte e marmellata di more. L'alcol non si fa nemmeno notare. Manca quel graffio di secchezza finale che la renderebbe più agile nella bevuta.

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.
