Pours clear brown with a thick but fading tan head. Aroma and taste of caramel, nuts, with a sort of plastic edge to it. Sweet taste fades into a grainy finish.

SkillsFactory (481) - ITALY - FEB 18, 2016
Color rosso rubino con riflessi caramello, limpida, schiuma beige di media persistenza. Aroma di pane nero, prugna, tostato e alcool. Al palato sempre pane nero e prugna, e sapore pronunciato di lager commerciale. Coda amaricante tostata ed erbacea molto prolungata, quasi sgraziata. Corpo medio-leggero, mediamente carbonata, texture watery.

Marko (4717) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 29, 2015
Bottled at the Potepuh beer fest. Shared with Tihi, Hrabren & Habek. Brown-amber body with a small white head. Raisins in the aroma, but mostly dried figs, dry, slightly oily, light alcohol. Taste... light caramel and dried figs, very vague roast. Meh. OK but ordinary. And too expensive.

ogivlado (7033) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 22, 2015
Bottled 750ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb as Menabrea Bock. Cola coloured, medium sized pale beige head, caramel in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, notes of dog food and metal with hint of dried fruits and alcohol. Weak in hops, thin overall...better than typical Menabrea brew but still far from good.

Quite a nice bock. Great color, good maltiness, minimal head. doesnt taste like 7.5%, but far from watery. Worth trying. Got at a gelato/pastry shop in Vernazza.
