3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours very dark brown with a 3 finger creamy/foamy tan head. Aroma of mild citrus and darkly roasted malt. Near full bodied. Flavor is almost minty chocolate - must be the "powerful Italian" stuff. It is more dry than not, and it is bitter. It is a pleasant departure from the norm.
