3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hey! Overpriced Italian beer! Poured out a deep mahogany with a mid brown, bubbly cap with light, slippery fading lacing and lots of sediment. The aroma is quite varied and interesting: raw mixed nuts, those dehydrated orange fruit cubes in some trail mixes, well placed ginger, slight pineapple, good roasted malts, weak alcohol, decent spice, burnt and almost peaty. Lots of roasted malts, seafood???? earth, bitter, some fruit, lots of nuts, not really almond though, more roast, slight spice. Zippy, solid mouth feel with a long bitter and robust finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle - 750 ml) Dark brown in color with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is very bitter and complex, with a lot of fruits and malts and a very unusual bitterness. Flavor is much the same. A tart and tangy bitter flavor with some sweetness and malts. Finishes with that unusual bitterness. Almost tastes like ginger mixed with a lot of hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"Dark blackish brown with a short lives brown crown, tons of crud poured out of the bottle on the second pour. Aroma is very faint but yummy, nuts, apple, and very mild alcohol. Taste is also yummy but mild. Malty with elements of hazelnuts. Beer finishes very mildly bitter and leaves behind a after taste like a Worthers Original (hard caramel candy). More I drink the more I can taste oak or sometimes this turns in to a red wine like taste. Very Dry but also soft, actually soft is the perfect description of the beer the aroma taste and feel all come across soft and subtle. On my last few sips the taste of dirt and ginger are starting to appear. Not a bad brew nothing special, but worth a try. Thanks Jeff!!!"

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is soapy with tropical fruit, polynesian BBQ sauce, and cola. The appearance is mahogany with an average sized head that falls fast. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is not quite smooth but not quite thin. Overall its decent.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells like caramel and rye. Wow. This tastes like a combination of dried apricots, dried pineapple, some malt. Crazy fruity, but with a flavor that isnít bad. Too expensive, but otherwise I totally enjoyed this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown, almost black. Thin dense head. Smells like pineapple, ginger. Very bready flavor, like pumpernickel, maybe, and hints of fruit and tobacco and leather and maybe fig, or maybe some chocolate. Flavor is not nearly as fruity as the aroma. Maybe some port or sherry as it warms. Rated on port 82. Am I the only one here?
