4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle. Beer pours dark brown, with little cappuccino foam. Aroma is inviting, with cherries and fruits under spirit. Body is medium. Taste is wonderfully balanced between sweet and bitter, going from the former to the latter. More feelings, like some chocolate and licorice. A great beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Dark reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, slightly toasty nose with crisp-bread, burnt sugar, treacle toffee, a touch of rye and caramel. Malty, roasted taste with notes of burnt sugar, caramel, treacle-toffee, some coffee, crisp-bread, toast and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Possibly and bit hard and aggressive, but interesting and quite tasty. Quite nice.

Bottiglia, una cannonata di malto mitigato da altrettanto luppolo...da non sottovalutare

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a dark muddy river water brown with a small tan head. Aroma is full of dark fruit some sticky caramel malt and a bit of smoke. Flavor is a brown sugar sweetness to start then comes a thick and syrupy malt that gives off a decent toffee and dark fruit. Finish is has a bit of and black licorice. This was a sold alt beer although it’s a bit sweet for me. Plenty of heavy, thick and chewy malt give this beer plenty of flavor.
