Cask & Bottle Conditioned; Regular.
A dark premium beer with an unusual medley of flavours. It is rich and malty with a roasted stout-like edge, yet also light and dry with spiciness and fruit, from the blend of hops: Exuberant American Cascade restrained by traditional English Fuggles with a touch of Bramling Cross.

Ragnampiza (558) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - FEB 22, 2015
500 ml bottle from Les Vignerons. Very dark red/copper, quite clear, with a big, fluffy, forever lasting light beige head. Extremely interesting nose: quite sweet and roasted initially, clean and inviting notes of milk chocolate, vanilla and toffe, but then a rich fruity and hoppy presence (esp. candied oranges) become more and more evident. The first sip almost scream black IPA, despite the aroma the sweetness is almost non existent, it’s not too bitter and the two different components (roasted malts/hint of coffee and hoppy/resinous) works decently well togheter. Very smooth mouthfeel, rather high drinkability. Fruity and roasted aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium body, slightly creamy texture. Unusual indeed, but in a good and interesting way.
