2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Premetto che, per gusto mio personale, quando oltrepasso la manica difficilmente trovo birre che mi piacciano, ma proprio come stile.
Detto questo, quando una birra non è soddisfacente, come in questo caso, riesco a capirlo comunque.
Non mi dilungo in variegati commenti tecnici, l’impressione che a me da questa birra è di una simil-stout, allungata con almeno una buona metà di acqua e imbottigliata. ----- I state that, for my personal taste, I find it difficult when I cross the sleeve beers that I like, but just like the style.
That said, when a beer is not satisfactory, as in this case, can not understand it anyway.
I will not dwell in varied technical comments, the impression to me that this beer is a stout-like, elongated with at least a good half and bottled water.
It scarcity his trademark, has poor aroma, poor taste, poor body, etc ...
The vote? It can not be that POOR!
Fa della scarsità il suo marchio di fabbrica, ha aroma scarso, gusto scarso, corpo scarso, etc...
Il voto? Non può essere che SCARSO!

Dobre stare Old Ale. Ciemne bardzo czarne z leciutka gdzie niegdzie poswiata czerwieni. Piwo slodowo palone. Tostowe, sliwkowe. Gozkie wytrawne z lekkim balansem slodyczy. Ale dominuje wytrawnosc i palonosc zdecydowanie. Ciekawe zrownowazone i pelne w smaku piwo. Piana nie za wielka. Piwo niesamowicie smaczne i syte.

Pours a very dark brown with a tan head that stays aloft. The smell is dark fruit, roasted malt, molasses, coffee. The taste is a dry slightly bitter brew with the aforementioned notes ending quite dry. Light plus body with fine carbonation structure making it quite gentle going down.
