Bottle.<b>[thanks to the Italian Guys]</b>
#3 Birthday beer.
Pours brownish black with a great, creamy, light-beige head. Aroma has coffee, roasted malts - a touch of tartness as well. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour has a bit of citric tartness - more or less an infection. There are great notes of coffee and dry hops at the end. Even a heavy dose of hops. It is probably a great - even very great - beer, when it’s fresh.
