COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Impenetrabile color mogano con riflessi rubino. Schiuma cappuccino, aderente allo stile, compatta e persistente. Il caff domina le prime impressioni olfattive, e pur rimanendo il filo conduttore, presto cede il passo ad altre sensazioni aromatiche: liquirizia, cioccolato ed un rinfrescante tocco di Vetyver sul finale. Palato pieno, con un retrolfattivo corrispondente ed un finale alcolico e persistente.

AlchemikalGab (48) - Borgomanero (Novara), - DEC 23, 2012
33cl bottle @ home. Better to sip this alone, I tried it along with some pistacchio chocolate, but the very best of it came after a few sips without it. Pour a black liquid, with shades of brown, head is small but persistent Nose is raw but very interesting, I get ground coffee, tobacco, cocoa, Id say a little leather and a warm sweet liquorice and dark fruits note after a while. Very harsh and bitter at first sip, it gives its best in the end, with some really slight alcoholic sweetness and a hint of acidity that makes it drinkable. Long pleasant aftertaste. If I was to describe this beer in a word it would be rustic, I had more "elegant" imperial stouts, more chocolatey, but this is one of my favourites.

I doubt if all was ok with this bottle. Aroma: smells like coffe settlement in espresso machine, earthy, soily. Appearance: black, clear, no head.light sweetness, where is bitterness? Palate: soft carbonation, light body, thin feel, light bitter, astringent, aftertaste.

SkillsFactory (595) - ITALY - JUN 10, 2016
Lotto 317 15. Marrone molto scura, schiuma beige di media finezza molto persistente che rimane appiccicata lungo la parete del bicchiere. Aroma prevalente di fondi di caff, liquirizia, frutti rossi, note di ossidazione, legno, caff torrefatto, segale e zucchero. Al palato etilica, frutti rossi, caff, liquirizia, cioccolato e caramello, un po metallica, finale amaro bruciato misto a fondi di caff e cioccolato. Corpo pieno, carbonazione medio-alta, corposa.

Pours pitch black with a cappuccino head; funny how every little bubble was perfectly alligned. Aroma is very rich of coffe, chocolate, liquorice and assorted spices and the taste keeps all of that. Very sweet and aromatic but not too much. The full body and medium-low carbonation makes it very sirupy... but beware of the alcoholic content! Very good, it reminded me a lot of Mikkellers Vanilla Shake, just a bit tamer.

madnorwegian (165) - FRANCE - APR 17, 2016
A VERY flavorful beer: coffee, leather, tabacco, burnt toast all mixted into a syrupy brew. Packs 9% alcohol so isnt something you can have too much of. Would drink again beside a fireplace in winter.

Diabobale (468) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - APR 3, 2016
Colore ebano scuro privo di schiuma. Al naso alcol predominante, legno, qualche nota tostata e di caff non torrefatto. Corpo setoso, oleoso, con carbonazione assente. Al palato solo amaro da caff ed erbaceo. Piatta nel complesso.

Bawelt (627) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAR 6, 2016
Assez forte, manque de diversit ct arme et dquilibre. Nez assez fort, thylique, on sent un fond pic, trs torrfi (trop ?) et des notes de caf. La bouche est assez forte, plutt thylique galement, assez pice comme si on avait mit un peu de piment. On va trouver de lgres notes boises, un caf assez fort mais qui manque darmes. Manque clairement de rondeur ou damertume pour lui donner une identit propre sinon son ct inutilement bourrin. Loin dtre mauvaise mais pas transcendante.

sonotono (248) - torino, ITALY - JAN 8, 2016
Bottiglia stappata e risultata quasi del tutto priva di carbonazione, zero schiuma, quindi il seguente giudizio ne risulta pesantemente condizionato. Nera impenetrabile, senza schiuma. Odore legnoso, liquoroso, caff, tostato, liquirizia. Setosa, oleosa in bocca, carbonazione assente; sapore liquoroso, caff, tostato, legno, tabacco. Difficile da bere virtualmente senza rifermentazione in bottiglia. Peccato.

Fassbier. Kaffee und Zartbitterschokolade! Rstaromen, leichte Se. Man riecht schon, was man anschlieend schmeckt. Sehr dunkel, wenig Schaumkrone. Im Abgang bleibt die Schokolade lang erhalten. Sehr lecker.

laiti (8137) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 11, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 31.07.2016
Lots and lots of foam when pouring. Aroma has cold coffee, some chocolate, ash and hints of vegetables. A bit stinging palate, too much CO2. Flavour has cold coffee, chocolate, licorice and hints of vegetables. Also some ashy vichy notes typical to beers too high on CO2. Somewhat enjoyable despite all that.
