Bottiglia. Colore marrone scuro con una schiuma color cappuccino mediamente persistente. Aromi di malto tostato, nocciole e cioccolato. Al palato è molto beverina e il malto la fa da padrone, sul finale si sentono le nocciole. Corpo medio con una carbonazione bassa. Una bella porter

This beer looks and smells good with pretty good flavor. However, the aftertaste leaves something to be desired. I’ll finish the six pack that I bought, but would not buy it again.

Bottle. Loved this beer. Dark brown color with a medium tan head. A malty roasted nut aroma. Taste was a hazelnut laced chocolate delight. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Hazelnuts, chocolate, roasty, toffee.
A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Hazelnuts, slightly malty, cocoa, roasted, nutty, toffee.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, nutty finish.
O- Pretty darn good, but not quite great. The hazelnut aroma and taste is great especially at the front, but the taste fades and leaves you with a not so great after taste. Nonetheless, this is a pretty solid brew, that with a few tweaks would be really damn good. The hazelnut is very welcomed, but it’s just lacking and not quite complex enough.

Pours nice ebony color with cherry reflects. Almost no head. Nose is caramel and coffee. Aromas are roasted malts, coffee and clearly hazelnut. Dry and coffee-nutty finish. Well balanced and pleasant beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown pour with a thin beige head. I was a bit wary of this but it turned out to be decent. Aroma is chocolate, sweet hazelnut, caramel, and light coffee grounds. A bit slick on the tongue, medium bodied. The sweetness is more subdued than I expected. Toffee, Chocolate, light nuttiness, and a flutter of vegetable character on the first sip. Finishes with a pleasant, mild roastiness.
Not a bad beer, but don’t let it warm up too much.
