3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle in a bar outside Rome. Dark copper/light brown, pretty hazy with tons of bubbles streaming up and some little particles floating around, and a nice, creamy and persistent light beige head. Lots of grain and licorice on the nose, also sweet milk chocolate. A hint of herbal hops as well. Very bitter and coffee forward, quite astringent but ironically it’s refreshing. Slightly metallic aftertaste. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body, slightly creamy texture. Just decent.

At the Hair of the Dog mini-tasting. Served in a snifter. This Italian dark beer pours a dark brown/black with a foamy beige head. The nose is malty chocolate, savory with a slightly chalky nose. The taste is roasty, chocolate, milk chocolate pretty good. Solid but not so remarkable.
