Pours jet-black with a big beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and spice. Flavor is rich, tasting of dark cocoa and expresso. A bit light of body for this style, but still pretty good overall. Rasmus40 (22130) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2011

2012-04-12, bottle from Birratrovo, Como, 7-5-8-4-15=39
Black color with majestic head, brownish and creamy. Aroma of roasted malt and some cardboard, unexciting; but also some coffee later, and that’s better. The flavor is very good, with dark chocolate and some roasted malt, not too ashy as other black beers, and not thick at all; good bitterness level.
Good chocolatey Foreign Stout.
2008-03-29, bottle at Salone della Birra Artigianale e di Qualità 2008, Milan, 7-4-8-4-14=37
Black color. A good Imperial Stout, with nice aroma, medium body, strong liquorice character. A bit dry at the end.
Bottle at home (Domus Birrae, Roma) - 05/10/12.
Rich black with a thick mocha head that soon thins to a pond and disperses to the edge of the glass.
Roasted dark malts on the nose, molasses, chocolate, a little coffee.
Rich roast malt flavour, dark chocolate, licqourice and a little alcohol.
Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation, a little too much for the style.
Good imperial stout. mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2011
