Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Brune, peu de mousse. On sent le malt avec une finale sur le chocolat et le fumé. Correcte.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 750ml bottle poured in a mug.
A: Pours a dark amber to brown clear color. Small beige head with small retention with no lacings formed or left.
S: Very biscuity. Notes of roastes malts and ashes. Weird
T: Malty, biscuity and ashy. Light bitter finish.
M: Light body and low carbonation.
O: Disgusting for a beer that comes in a quite nice bottle. In the end, I have the impression that it was infected or something. I’ll try it again at my next holidays in Italy.

Taste like a nice Brown Ale. Some coffee on the nose, butterscotch. Taste is a bit sweet and a little bitter in the afternote. Not very complex but definately drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2014 Pours a quite big, off-white thick and compact head; deep dark leathery brown hazy colour. Smells very malty, dried fruits, ripe fruits adn spices (cinammon-licorice). Taste is very much on the way: toasted malts, caramel, tofee and little fruity. Medium to high sweetness, low bitter-roastiness in the end; overall quite balanced bittersweet. Creamy texture, average carbonation, quite dry finish. Very much dubbel like, but with more delicacy and cleanness usually typical of Italian brews

Shared a 75cl bottle. Pours a hazy pale brown colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is coffee, roasted, dark chocolate and yeast. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is light, slightly more sweet than bitter with a long dry finish. Overall, a nice beer.

Bottle @ THT May, courtesy of deanso. Pours a clear amber beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is rather yeasty, fruity and has a touch of cinnamon. Flavor is medium sweet, faint hoppy and overall fairly uninteresting. Interesting looking bottle though.
