4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2015 Impenetrabile color nero oleoso pressochč privo di schiuma, giusto un tenue velo color panna poco persistente. Aroma ricco e robusto con sentori di cacao, mou e frutti di bosco, e una piů lieve parvenza fumosa. Gusto dolciastro e maltoso con note persistenti di caffč e zucchero caramellato ben bilanciate con l’affumicatura abbondante, finale "pulito" con morbide note debolmente nocciolate. Oleosa al palato, di corpo medio-abbondante e con effervescenza quasi nulla: una fantastica ed intensa birra da meditazione!

Draught. Dark chocolate and plums, complemented by coffee and topped off with a not overbearing amount of peat. Soft, balanced, very tasty beer.

Bottle at a tasting in Portland-Oregon, many thanks to douglas88 for hosting and offering. Rough dark brown pour, unstable tan head. Nose: leather, mint elements and some smoke. Mouth: more rough notes, wild Imp Stout, some dry fruit, smoke again. Lovely.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 Very dark brown color, almost black, average sized tan head. Aroma of smoked malt, ham, roasted malt. Taste of smoke, roasted malt, herbs, dark chocolate, coffee, slightly watery... Maybe due to drinking it after 10% RIS. Bitter, maybe even too bitter. Medium body, soft carbonation. Good but expected even more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Very dark brown, almost black color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Woody, bit smoked, caramel, very faint toffee, alcohol in aroma. Sweet, woody, smoked, faint sausage, herbal hops in taste. Woody, fatty sausage and nettley hops in aftertaste. Covers alcohol well. Fatty sausages are nice. Hops are maybe bit too acidic, but actually won’t ruin anything. Nice one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; BB 2021. Pours dark brown with moderate tan head. The aroma’s rather restrained smokiness and roasted malts, some pissy and earthy notes. Tastes sweet with a sour overcoat and warming bitter finish. Flavour’s smoky and roasty, chocolate and coffee. Doesn’t seem all too clean though. Pretty flat on the palate with little carbonation in the finish together with the slightly biting bitterness. Somewhat sticky. I quite like the smoky character of this, I normally don’t like smoked beers at all, especially when the smokiness recalls greasy sausages - here the smokiness is better integrated with the roast of the malts I think. It’s quite nice.
