Bevuta a Roma alla spina. Il colore è scuro.Sentori al naso di cioccolato. Al palato caffè e cioccolato amaro, miele e un retrogusto leggermente erbaceo e buon amaro finale. Molto ben bilanciata. Merita!

Oh, that’s interesting! Would you call it a stout? I’m not sure - it seems to walk the thin line between that and a BIPA. Nevertheless, it’s fine - licorice, coffee and, weirdly, shellfish notes on the nose. Pours charcoal black with a thin head but fat lace. One of many contradictions in this beer I would add. Flavour is fabulous - lime zest, lemonade, coffee grounds, damp earth, graprefruit, pine resin, burnt crispy bits from the bottom of a roast tin, and fresh, cold mango all combine in an epic agglomeration in the glass. What can I say? It rocks. It engenders bad puns, and I arbor a suspicion I’ll want moor of it in the very near future.

Dark brown with frothy tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate and watermelon on the nose. Rich citrus and watermelon with chocolate, then the coffee comes pounding in from the sidelines. Rich, fruity, smooth, coffee continues throughout melding perfectly with the malt and hops. V sessionable too.

Sissio (1072) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUN 17, 2014
Clear dark brown with winey red highlights, brown short lasting head. Fulfilling roasted malts, coffee bean, licorice, hint of toffee and hops. Quite bitter mixed with roasted malts, coffee and with a herbaceous and ashy ending. Well balanced

My Bottom Line:
This sublime Porter juxtaposes roasted coffee, dark chocolate and resinous hops until lush fruitiness takes over.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the black with dark brown hues.
-The aroma is spellbinding. Wealthy malts, coffee and vibrant hops peering through.
-The flavour profile is quite different from the aroma! Much more fruit driven, less roasty and sweet.
-Resinous hops come with citrusy tips as well.
-The cask mouthfeel is very enjoyable; soft yet full.

On cask at Ma Che Siete, Roma.

Can from Coppers, Newcastle. Inky black with a large head of tan foam. It has a rich chocolate, liquorice and pine flavour with citrus notes, more pine and coffee on the finish. Excellent!

Benzai (11865) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2016
Can [from Secret Euro Santa 2015] @ home. Opaque dark brown color, full sized beige to light brown head. Aroma is malts, coffee, roasted malts, hops. Taste is a wonderful blend of hops and roasted malts. Some coffee, dark malts and a solid malt and hop bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Very nice!
