Tha aroma is rich, complex, appealing and not aggressive, with roasted notes and hints of dried fruit and spirit-soaked fruit. Winey, a touch of alcohol, with some notes of Imperial Stout. In the mouth it keeps what it promised in the nose: rich of every nuance of "dark", from caramel to chocolate and coffee, it has a smooth, silky and full palate with the sweet notes perfectly balanced by the right bitterness. A sipping, yet quite drinkable beer. Though it is perfectly ready to drink when it is released, the beer can benefit from some aging in the bottle.

Dark brown, almost black. The aroma is quite simple, some caramel, yeast, alcohol. Very good body, well structured and smooth, with good mix of chocolate, caramel and a hint of roasted malt. Correct bitterness, and at least a degree of complexity. The alcohol is not too strong. Very good.

Dark "brune" with a small disappearing lacing head. Chocolate, apples and pears, raisins, caramel maltiness and a distinct and peculiar underbrush note. Well bodied, sweet, slightly vinous on the alcohol side, flavourful.
