Davvero una buona cosa sta marcia dei pinguini. Cremosa ed egregiamente cioccolatosa all’aroma e al gusto. Note di caffé, malto tostato e una speziatura leggera. Buonerrima.

MichaelAwesome (3641) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Classy stout with some malt, coffee, dark chocolate and leaves. A really classy piwo which offers a deep body and high drinkability.

McTapps (3641) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 12, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and torf. Taste of intense malt, leaves, woods, bread, spices and coriander. Very light bitter hoppy finish. Nice beer and I enjoyed it a lot.

olio (5966) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2013
50 cl bottle.
Pours dark red, almost black color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of faint chocolate, ash, some cocoa, dark malts and subtle hops and fruits. Flavor of roasted malts, dry dark chocolate, cocoa and malts, mild wooden notes also, spices on the finish. Dry bitter malty palate, somewhat salty creamy finish. Sadly a bit too watery, otherwise decent.

Niall73 (1409) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle bb Mar 2015. Pours a ark brown/black with a tan head which dissipates quickly. Looks good. Aroma is milk chocolate, vanilla, bread. Medium body, medium carbonation - quite a bit of fizz. Milk chic again, with bitter coffee, a touch of dark fruits, a hint of citrus, a little coca-cola and a bitter, slightly metallic, finish. Overall, not bad.

ianwelby (441) - SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Near-black pint with a beige, bubbly head. Toasty malt in the aroma with a hint of chocolate. Taste is a smooth, chocolate-malt flavour but with a sweet, zesty edge. The finish is interesting with the toated malt prominent but a spicy hint in there too. Surprisingly light and very drinkable.

Piero1987 (650) - Iglesias, ITALY - NOV 2, 2013
