On tap at Hoppy Days. Black colour, creamy frothy beige head. Aroma of a glass full of eggy farts, sulphur, really off. Flavour of hard-roasted malts, hint of leather, coffee beans, berries, bitter finish. Light bodied. Something was wrong here. Will re-rate when given the opportunity.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Birra+. Very dark copper/brown, almost impossibile to see through, with a proper creamy and persistent light beige head. Lovely smell, not really intense or powerful but extremely clean and elegant. Roasted malts, good quality (70%+) dark chocolate, coffee beans, a hint of smokiness, even some light chili in the background, perhaps. Taste pretty much follow suits. Less elegant, but more intense. Decent coffee bitterness, a hint of astringency, so so drinkable like a sessioun stout, when in fact it’s not. Pleasent fruity (esp. dark berries) and herbal presence in the aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium body, slightly oily texture. Textbook example of a Stout. Solid.
