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

Bottle @DomusBirrae. Black with a thin cappuccino head. Light roasted, milk chocolate with a subtle smokey note. Taste is medium sweet with a roasted coffee and choco roundness. Easy thou quite flavourful.

Erasmus_ro (2018) - 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 (258) - 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

olio (8067) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2015
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 (7704) - 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.

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 (2169) - 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. Pours brown to red with a beige head, aroma of smoke, peat, smoked fish, chocolate and coffee, flavor is smoked with chocolate and coffee, slightly acidic, medium to full bodied. Nice.
