Silvan7 (655) - Samarate, ITALY - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle @ home. Schiuma praticamente assente, grossolana e beige. Birra marrone opalescente. Aroma liquoroso, effettivamente ricorda la grappa e le pere sotto spirito. Si avvertono anche caffé e noce. Un filo sbilanciata sull’etilico. Gusto intenso dolce amabile di caffè e cioccolato, legno , retrolfattivo di frutta secca, noce su tutto che con l’amaro bilancia la dolcezza generale. Abbastanza corposa, ma non come le IS anglosassoni. Poco carbonata, un po’ troppo appiccicosa. Equilibrato il gusto abbastanza armonica in generale.

Kosmokrator (457) - ITALY - MAR 13, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Nera e spessa, pressoché priva di schiuma. Aroma dolciastro, sentori di caffè, caramello, malto scuro, vaniglia e amarene; gusto complesso e robusto di caffè, toffee e liquirizia, nel finale compaiono note più alcoliche e spiritate. Oleosa, corposissima, liquorosa e zuccherosa; l’abv si sente parecchio ma non è eccessivamente sbilanciata. Golosa come una fetta di torta!!

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 25, 2012
20/10/2012 Ma che siete venuti a fà (375ml bottle). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma color cappuccino, leggera e poco persistente. Aroma intenso, etilico, note di vaniglia, caffé, tostato, cioccolato, liquirizia. In bocca è aggressiva, l’alcol si sente parecchio e brucia in gola, prevalentemente dolce, cioccolatosa, liquorosa, un po’ corta. Corpo medio-pieno, consistenza oleosa. Andrebbe rifinita un po’.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 13, 2012
Grazie a Mortlach per aver condiviso questa meraviglia. Imperial stout da 14 gradi, molto cioccolato poco caffé, una vena di liquirizia, un po’ troppo alcol forse si, ma per il resto è buonissima.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milan; synthetic cork
Black color, with small beige head. Very nice aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Full bodied; wonderful flavor of dark chocolate, roasted malts, some coffee, light liquorice; it’s quite sweet; the alcohol is present, with some warmth, more in the end, but not too much; and there is no evidence of the grappa.
Excellent fat beer.
