Not bad, and quite drinkable. But the taste is a bit unremarkable even for a double.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Spina. Colore ambrato inteso, schiuma persistente ma non particolarmente abbondante. Aroma di caramello, note fruttate e lieviti. Gusto che richiama il dolce del caramello e la frutta, lieve nota amara finale, che rende ancora più appagante l’insieme. Buona carbonatazione per una birra molto piacevole ed equilibrata.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark red to brown, consistent tan to beige head, which unfortunately disappears rather quickly. The aromas are slightly fruity and toasted, dense. The predominant flavours are also fruity and caramel, not bitter. The body is medium and the texture is somewhat oily and very nice. The finish is not as great as expected, though. To be fair, it is a good beer but nothing to get overly excited about.
