Colour: black with a brown head. Taste; intensive. Beautiful persistant head that looks like cappuccino. The aroma is of caramel and rhubarb, and it feels the print of English hops. It's a beer for meditation, drink calmly. While it settles in the glass you will discover an intriguing aroma that will remind you of brandy. On the tongue it leaves a taste of liquorice, panna cotta, Irish coffee and bitter cocoa notes. It's "dangerously drinkable".

75cl bottle tahnks to Ricky! It pours a clean amber colour with a wide tan head. Aroma is sweet and hits strong with notes of molasses, caramel, licorice, little vanilla and candy sugar. Taste is very sweet with loads of candy sugar, licorice, caramel, chinotto. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It really takes a sweet-tooth to drink a full bottle of this one.

Silvan7 (825) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 11, 2013
On tap @ birrificio di como. Marrone scura, velata, con schiuma beige fine, abbastanza persistente. profumo tostato, di caffè, un po’ alcolico e di frutta secca. Erbaceo da luppolo presente non molto in linea con lo stile. Il profumo è abbastanza intenso , ma poco persistente. Gusto abbastanza amaro, tostata. poco calda, corpo medio/debole, ha una sensazione vellutata che esalta il gusto a metà tra caffè e liquirizia, ma molto discreti. Abbastanza equilibrata ed abbastanza armonica. L’alcool non si avverte quasi.

Si presenta scura con un bel cappello di schiuma nocciola. Aroma di malto affumicato non molto intenso. Al palato risulta watery, sentori di noccioline, malto affumicato non molto marcati. Non molto convincente

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2008
Very dark beer with a beige head that seems to remain for ever. A lot of sweet malty aromas. The same in the taste. No sourness of burned malts at all. Also no signs of any bitterness. Full bodied and sticky mouthfeel.

TBone (13722) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2007
Bottled (BB 01/2008)
Dark ruby brown, small beige head. Barnyardish, lightly chocolaty aroma. Medium-bodied. Reasonably clean coffeish and roasted flavor, although there is some barnyardish notes. Smooth palate. Harmless but also a bit characterless. For being Italian, it is ok.
