I.I.C.S.S. Italian Imperial Coffee Spiced Stout Top Fermented Beer. It is the same basis that gave birth to Papëssa too. It goes to barrel (barrique) and stay there for 12 months. During this period I add coffee and spices. The name Marché ’l Re is a card game name very played here in Piedmont in the past. People were used to play it in coffee shops, drinking coffee with fernet (Fernet is a type of amaro, a bitter, aromatic spirit. Fernet is made from a number of herbs and spices). Inspiring to that, I use a blend of Caffè Vergnano (a very famous brand of coffee from Chieri) and spices as rhubarb, saffron, gentian and cinchona. "Ebony beer, strong in character, very complex. In the nose it is rich of an intriguing mix of flavors as chinchona, soy sauce, coffee and chocolate stuffed with candy orange. Spicy notes of gentian root and saffron are standing in the palate, well balanced by coffee and dried mushrooms notes. Try it with sushi, blue cheese or as ingredient for a different tiramisù." - Lorenzo Dabove aka Kuaska

Bottle. Dark brown in colour, big white head - the beer was seriously overcarbonated. This is sour stout with poor coffee aftertaste, bitter with acidic finish. Some barrel notes found, but nothing really great. Huge disappoinent.

fiammanghilla (916) - Genova, ITALY - APR 19, 2015
Assaggio @ kamun lab pub. Scura senza schiuma. Al naso caffè macinato fresco. In bocca esce nota china che lotta col caffè. Strana e poco bevibile, interessante comunque. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

Forse a lungo andare potrebbe un pò essere molto particolare, ma a me è garbata parecchio.

King_Alex_II (1031) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 9, 2014
Sour stout. The beer seems to have two phases, but they harmonize quite well. The sour taste combined with the strong body works good, but I don’t like the coffee in the finish.

SinH4 (2080) - Garching, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2014
Very black color with small beige head. Chalk and ashes, espresso, but also a fruity sourness. This dry chalky character is very irritating. The sourness gives some sort of a balance. Very very dry. Low carbonation.

77ships (6975) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2014
375 ml. bottle sampled @ Vini, Birre, Ribelli 2014. Dark wood brown, little mocha bubbles only on the side. Nose is huge ashes & charred oak, charred coffee, liquorish,… Taste is vinous red grapes mixed with charred coffee, ashes, roast, burned, charred,… Bit thin body. More unique than good. Interesting never the less. This would probably get higher scores if it were labelled as a “sour/wild ale” instead of “Imperial Stout”.
