3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ unibirra. Colore marrone velata, schiuma beige (più chiaro delle classiche imperial stout) fine e molto persistente. Aroma tostato, di salamoia delle olive, caffè, lievito. abbastanza intenso. Gusto piuttosto secco, lievemente acidulo, si ritrovano caffè, tostatura, lievito e un buon amaro da luppolo. Molto ben bilanciata, non colpisce particolarmente per alcun aspetto specifico.abbastanza calda, nasconde molto bene i suoi 9 ABV.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaque dark brown chestnut with a tan head that settles to a film and leaves little lacing. The nose is roasty with some molasses and dark fruits. Very smooth. Some molasses and a bit of sweetness is represented in the taste also, along with some roastiness, cocoa and raisin and fig fruitiness. Hints of espresso, anise and some alcohol. Finishes mostly dry with a soft moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth with a light/medium body and light carbonation. Really nice and refined flavors. Fine example of a stout with Belgian yeast adding some fruitiness. With a bigger mouthfeel and perhaps a bit more carbonation, this would be stellar.

330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours pitch black with a cream head and dark fruits on the nose. Taste presents lovely toasty flavours, some soothing dark chocolate and a little coffee coming out the shadows before a beautiful bitterness on the finish. A truly beautiful stout.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Positive surprise is how dry the beer is. Not sweet at all. Problem with some stouts is that they are too sweet to my taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, dark roasted malts, caramel and some notes of darker sweet fruits. Taste has that same sweet chocolate character along with some warming alcohol, dry wood and some roasted notes. weak body on this one though. Straight forward malty and a little bit one-sided but easy drinkable.
