Black color with mocha head. Aroma has dark fruits, mostly figs, brown sugar and sweet malt. Taste is really well balanced. First you get the rich malt, followed by a roasty bitterness. Body is not heavy but feels really smooth. Overall it’s a tasty, easy drinking stout with a nice mouthfeel.

Fantastic, well balanced stout! Pours black w/ a good mocha head that leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is rich w/ a nice mix of chocolate sweetness & roasted notes. The taste is slightly bitter dark chocolate & finishes on the sweeter side. It’s complex & tasty! Well done!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Versa nel bicchiere di colore nero corvino; formando una spessa schiuma, cremosa, beige, che si dissipa abbastanza rapidamente. Aroma di malto tostato, cioccolato e caffè. Esordio in bocca amaro, con un bel mix di luppoli e malto scuro; vira poi su note più dolci di avena per proseguire su quelle di frutta scura. Morbida ed oleosa in bocca, dal corpo medio-pieno e dalla bassa carbonazione; un accenno di liquirizia e note tostate di caffè. Nel finale ricca presenza di cioccolato fondente ed una leggera presenza alcolica.
