Ricorda molto un liquore al caffè, dolciastra ma ben equilibrata.

Pour is black with no head at all. No visible carbonation. Aroma is very sweet with notes of overripe fruit, coffee grounds, and brown sugar. Flavor is a sticky and sweet bomb - dark sugar syrup, cherry juice, fresh coffee. Slight alcohol in the finish, but its masked well.

Backlog. Intensely sweet with dark cherries and dried fruits and a hint of chocolate. Although not really my cup of tea it’s just one of those beers that just sticks on your palate forever.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 14%. Best before 30.06.15. Pours black with a small, fast-disappearing light tan head. Slightly tart, sweetish dark fruit aroma, with a light berry note, a faint acetone note, remote cold coffee note, and a faint touch of chocolate. Flavour is sweet, almost sugary, with dark fruits. Same finish, with an alcohol burn and lingering vermouth-like and faint coffee notes. Caramel as it warms. Overall pretty good; the sweetness is pretty strong, but works nonetheless. 31.01.14.
