I donít want to down rate this beer, but its taste like a wrong made coffee with beer.
Advantage : The caramel feels very good, but too much CO2.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is a strong bubble gum with sone roasted malt. Appearance is a dark ruby, with very large carbonation bubbles. Taste is a bit malty but with a bitter hops lingering in the background. Aftertaste and complexity falls flat, especially compared to the nose which was excellent. Palate is ok, medium creaminess, a bit dry after several sips. Overall I think its decent, especially for 5.2%abv.

Un classico nel suo stile, brassato con precisione. Si sente forse la standardizzazione che non fa emergere qualche nota stupefacente.
Al naso si avvertono caramello ed aromi fruttati leggeri. La birra Ť ambrata carica e la schiuma Ť abbondante. In bocca si avverte qualche piacevole nota tostata e leggerissima erbacea che ben bilancia il carico di malto.
Corpo medio e secchezza e beverinitŗ adeguata per una birra piacevole ma non incredibile.

Clear, dark copper colored beer with really fair and long lasting head. The head is about one finger thick.
Mostly caramel aroma. Itís malty.
Itís quite bitter, but it could be more. A little bit sour.
Astringent, rough texture, medium carbonation and light-to-medium body.

Bottle. Chilled. Pours brown amber with medium to high head. As it is being poured strong malty aromas. Aroma is malts, caramel, a bit of fresh fruits and reminds of bread. Palate is smooth and creamy with a full body. Taste is bitter chocolate, alcohol and malts.

Very clear amber color, small compact white foam (as this style requires), nice hoppy aroma of citrus gently accompanied by the intense mature fruits (prune above all) given by the malts. A subtle really well balanced toastiness. Maybe too carbonated to be a bitter. Though pasteurised really a good one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint bottle share. Appearance: finger of tan head, copper color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: alcohol, medical/band-aid, caramel, fruity malt. Palate: full body, average carbonation, slightly cloying sweetness, caramel. Taste: caramel and fruity malt sweetness that is pretty cloying into a floral hops finish, but with a lingering cherry type fruit finish on the back of the tongue. Overall, very interesting, but not amazing in my opinion.
