Mettalic in aroma and taste. The bottle has ruined what may be an okay beer. Behind metallic is the taste of caramel and burnt chocolate. okay thickness on the tongue but the metallic made it horrible.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Birra molto particolare di difficile inquadratura. Profumata e fruttata sia al naso che al palato, dopo una riveduta ne si apprezza l’equilibratura e la buona beverinitÃ . Ottimo corpo e gusto amaro abbastanza pronunciato.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour with a dense, foamy head. Big time roasted malt aromas and some earthy hops. Flavor is straight-forward malty sweetness. For a strong ale this is quite weak but overall it’s highly drinkable.

Pours a cola color with a garnet hue. Taste is simple, almost watery. A mild sweetness with a bitter caramel aftertaste. The bitterness disappears quickly, leaving an easy drinking beer that wasn’t as complex as I hoped but overall good.

Pours a dark ruby/blackish hue with a khaki colored head. Great chocolate and dark fruit aroma. Taste is of plums and raisin. A great beer no doubt, but still leaves something to be desired.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 12 ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Dark brown/ruby hue, medium tan head, strong malty nose with noticeable alcohol, fine firm bittersweet flavor with solid malt backbone and some fruit notes, very well balanced. I’ve heard stories of how good this beer is and was glad to finally try it. One of the very best beers I’ve ever received from a beer-by-mail/UPS club. Tasted on February 26, 2013.
