3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
15/12/2012 Ma che siete venuti a fà (handpump). Bevuta a Birre Sotto l’Albero. Nera, impenetrabile, schiuma beige molto abbondante e persistente. Al naso sentori di caffé, cioccolato nero fondente, luppolo, leggera liquirizia. In bocca malti tostati, cioccolato, caffé, discretamente lunga e intensa, appagante e ben fatta. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione soft. Non male come stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. It pours an almost black body topped by a minimal-sized, rocky, dark beige head. Roasted and burnt nose with some prunes, definitely not in the American way of doing it. Burnt, almost bonfire-like flavor with burnt toast and dark dried fruits. Very dry on the palate, medium bodied and nicely carbonated. An easy drinkable beer that doesn’t impress me. That’s probably because the dry, English-style stouts isn’t my preferred stout style. 120505
