È una birra scura, quasi impenetrabile alla vista, classificabile come una simil Imperial Stout. Il grado alcolico è di 7,2° con una schiuma color cappuccino che si presenta compatta e persistente. All’olfatto si mostra ricca di sentori di caffè tostato, cappuccino, ma anche di fichi e di prugne con accennate note di liquirizia; sullo sfondo ci sono sensazioni affumicate che regalano una buona complessità. Una volta in bocca lascia spazio ad un evidente aroma di malto, equilibrato però da un’abbondante luppolatura. Le note di affumicato sono generose ma per niente invadenti mentre nel finale lungo riemerge l’amaro della luppolatura. L’unica sfumatura, in una vita all’insegna dei contrasti. 18° 70EBC

330 ml bottle from Beer Up. Very dark brown, impossibile to see through, with a small, creamy and moderately persistent light beige head. Lovely aroma, not so rich/intense and "in your face" but clean and invinting. Roasted malts, licorice, herbal/balsamic hops, tons of bitter dark chocolate, earthy/rooty notes and a hint of vanilla. Very smooth and slick, certainly not a RIS talking about drinkability, body texture and alchool presence. Dark fruits, burnt caramel/toffee, bitter chocolate, light coffee astringency, very tasty and refined. Again rooty and moderately hoppy aftertaste. No booze taste at all, just a mild and pleasent warming sensation. Soft to average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Great beer, even though the Imperial Stout category may not be in its favour.

Pours coal black with a light brownish white head. Nose is smoke, coffe and surprisingly enough grapes. Taste is smoke and coffe with a surprising lightness to the mouth feel.

mzaar (1839) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2014
Flaska 0,33 cl från Domus Birrae, Rom. Mörk brun med stort beigt skum. Dofter av kaffe, mörk choklad, rostad malt och rök. Rökigheten är än mer framträdande i smaken, tillsammans med kaffe, mörk choklad, läder och en fin sälta ger det en mycket trevlig stout. Medelstor kropp. Munkänslan är mot det torra.

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Stas. Dark brown to black with a tan head. Lovely smoky aroma with some sausages and roastiness. Sweetish flavor, rather smoky, somewhat meaty, with chocolate and some roastiness, finishes drier. Medium-bodied. Very nice.

What affects you first is its smoked note, a spicy dry note that opens and becomes fruity in a few minutes. Good-looking head which last too little. Liquorice, mature fruit, some kind of "coal" in its taste, dark chocolate aftertaste. Not a bad beer, but from an imperial stout I expect so much more in terms of...fullness.

Silvan7 (793) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 23, 2013
On tap @ CHEESE 2013 BRA. una bellissima scoperta. una R.I.S. non troppo alcolica, con lievi note affumicate sia al naso che al gusto, non invadenti, e ben inserite nel contesto della birra. Il profumo è di caffè tostato, un filino di olive, con qualche richiamo alla liquirizia ed alla frutta secca. Bello il colore, marrona scuro con schiuma cremosa finissima color beige scuro.i luppoli sono citra e summit. si avvertono ma non sovrastano mai la tostatura e l’affumicatura. unico difetto è che manca un pelo di calore alcolico in bocca. molto molto buona

Mortlach (1066) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 6, 2013
06/05/2013 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bruna, riflessi color miele di castagno, schiuma biancastra sporca, poco persistente. Al naso sentori di cioccolato e leggero tostato, un accenno di lattosio. In bocca è delicata, cioccolato e leggero tostato, liquirizia, corpo medio, inferiore alle attese, sempre più una robust porter. Qualcosa non va, non mi convince.
