Birra nera con buona schiuma nocciola, all’odore nulla di eccezionale. In bocca su una base di malto tostato di delineano importanti note di caffe e sentori di liquerizia. Molto bevibile.

On draught, 330ml at 4:20, Rome. Black with tan head. An intense, bitter porter, lots of chocolate malts giving lots of depth and chunky coffee notes, roasty, licorice. There is an acidity in the finish which i hadn’t expected. Overall very decent, the finish of a great night in a great pub.

Bottled. A dark brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has strong notes of roasted malt, also lending it a bit of acidity. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and roasted bread. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Enoteca Bonatti, Firenze. Utterly pitch with a receding tan collar, but it has been sat in a pintpot in the fridge for a couple of hours (suitcase incident). Unlacy with surprising legs at the ABV. Nicely charred aroma with roasted barley, coal, coffee and Marmite..maybe some Chianti booziness and a little oak, prune and cherry once the head’s gone. Some lactic dubbelesque softness initially moving into black cherry dabs, Twiglet yeastiness, roasted barley and bitter choc, dribble of cafe Italiano..solid roasty finish, good ashy tobacco linger. Tasty authentic effort mingling ashy English stout/porter with a bit of Dubbel milkiness. Mmm.
