3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle from BG Birra, served in a nonic half pint glass. Dark brown, quite murky looking, with a huge, bubbly light beige head, which fizzed away quickly. Not much on the nose: coffee powder, some nuttiness, roasted malts, a hint of chocolate and smoke. Way better in mouth, lots of flavours to be found: milk chocolate, watered down coffee, a bit of liquorice, mild herbal and rooty bitterness. Quite smooth and velvety. A hint of cardboard in the finish, but pleasent fruity and roasty aftertaste. Average carbonation, light to medium body, slightly oily texture. Solid example of the style.
