3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black pour with a massive, thick brown head. The nose is loaded with tobacco and coffee. Rich and fairly vanillaish. There is also a lot of dried raisin, rum and intensely rich and roasty. There is lots of cocoa and a very long lingering bitterness. A little bit of heavy chewiness. Cold coffee and rich roastiness. Earthy and intense.

Color : dark sweet black beer with small carbonization and medium brown foam. Very appetizing beer!!! :) Smell : chocolate, coffee, malt, and sugar complexity, and species at the end. Taste : great complexity in mouth you really feel the sugar presence, coffee and chocolate (of course). Aftertaste : malt and chocolate with coffee presence (more precisely : cold sugar coffee). Really Amazing! I recommend it! Great experience! (Ideal for Autumn or Winter)

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 Che birra! aroma di caffe tostato e di rum. Al palato si presenta tipo Borghetti con una apporto infinitesimale di malto tostato è un retrogusto amaricante, sempre "caffettoso" e persistente. Il tutto imbevuto di una buone dose d’alcol che rendono questa birra molto liquorosa. Proprio buona.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a deep black color with a very thick dark tan color head. Aroma of strong roasted malts, coffee, chocolates and spices, and smokey.
Flavors of strong roasted malts, coffee, dry plums, chocolates, liquorice, hints of rhum and oak, hints of pepper, nuts and spices. Good carbonation, lightly sweet and good bitterness, dry. Some smokeyness. Very strong and complex flavors. Very litle water in this brew, its quite thick. The flavors changes over time, and every sip is a different experience. The rum is deffinitivly present, makes a nice ending touch. Very enjoyable, This is a top brew.
