COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

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.

Bottle@Sardinia. Black beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly roasted with maltiness. The flavour is malty and roasted with a little dryness. Overall a nice sweet stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rikstar (2075) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2016
Van de tap bij hoppa days, zwart met een mooie fijne creme kraag. Geur is geroosterd en een vleugje rook. Vol zuur en geroosterde smaak heeft veel weg van dark roast koffie en droge portwijn.

Pours dark with steady caramel foam, smoky and roasted are the main profiles, overwhelming everything else. Can’t say I like it, but making good balanced smoked beer is very difficult in general

Erasmus_ro (2416) - Alabama, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Tap @ Hoppy Days, Amsterdam. Pours a dark brown with an ugly, beige head. Aroma is roast, dark fruitiness is very prevalent, light smoke. Taste is roast, some berries, quite a bit of dark fruits, plums. Light smoke. Fairly low carbonation. Good, but not an imperial stout, I think.

Fairly decent Impy. Looks right, smells right and taste is OK, mouth feel is more than the ABV would suggest.

Serapac (340) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle in Lecce. Coke colour with a medium beige head. Aroma and taste liquorice, some chocolate, a bit weak on the roast malt and coffee elements for an imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap @ 4:20, Rome.
Pours dark red, almost black color with a small lasting head. Smoky aroma with some roasted malts and chocolate, faint coffee too. Chocolaty and malty flavor, mild charred notes. A unique blend of smoky IS. Something’s a bit off or larcing though.

laiti (7981) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Draught @ Brasserie 4:20. Aroma is somewhat sweet and malty with toffee candy. No signs of roastiness. Flavour has nuts, coffee, some sweet malty tones, smoke and hints of toffee candy. Sticky palate. Rich & unusual. Could have more imperial stout & more smoke - but not bad this way either.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - DEC 31, 2014
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.
