Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JAN 20, 2015
300 ml on tap at Il Maltese. Very dark brown, impossibile to see through, with a nice, creamy and persistent light beige head. On the nose roasted and almost smoked malts, generic coffee and chocolate notes but heavy licorice presence. Solid and ligering bitterness, properly dry but unfortunately way too fizzy and thin with a rather big astringency. Quite herbal and earthy taste. Lively carbonation, light body, slightly oily texture. Drinkable, but not something I’d seek again, in these conditions.

Mortlach (1920) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 25, 2014
On tap @Mad For Beer (Rome). Pours black, with a decent off-white head. Nose is very fine, delicate notes of chocolate and coffee, a touch of liquorice. Flavour is well balanced and very good again, chocolate, coffee with a bitter and clean end. Medium lo light body, low carbonation. Top class dry stout with a lot of character, complimenti!

Ungstrup (34322) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2010
Draft. A dark brown beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of sweet and roasted malts combined with chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of chocolate and roasted malt, leading to a dry and bitter finish, where the chocolate note lingers.

Cask Stillage at the GBBF, Earl’s Court 03/08/2010 Coffee roast aroma. Black a little rich on the palate strong in alcohol and hoppy with a hint of dryness in a bitter coffee roast finish.

Pour is almost black, slight brown edges. Large, staying, creamy, beige head. Lovely roasted aroma, light liqourice, some blackberries. Medium carbonation with some small bubbles. Flavour has lots of roasted malts, good dryness, some astringency. Mild chocolate, soft liqourice, light coffee. Long, lingering, dry and malty and coffee bitter finish. Very nice stout.
