750. Pours black and appears ink like in the glass. A brown heads floats atop. Looks like an Imperial Stout. Lots of taste, with solid roast, nut-like flavors, caramel, a touch of espresso. Solid roast aromas. Finesse. Soft carbonation. Finish lingers. A really, really impressive beer. INDASTRIA (129) - Berlin & Rome, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2011
Dark color, white/slightly brown creamy head but almost without lacing. Very massive aroma of cocoa, bitter chocolate, roastiness, molasses and little bit of Soy sauce (i don’t like it usually but in this case it wasn’t an issue). the taste has a dominating bitter chocolate component. with a less present cocoa and roasted coffee characters. anyway the taste is very "robust" and so is the body, the alcohol is totally hidden.
medium/soft carbonation. The finish is very bitter and dry because the malt rather than the hop. I have to say that i had it before and sometimes it showed a different beer, with a not so robust body and taste for example.
But i think it’s really a, very good, robust porter just like the label says fugitive (2037) - Athens, GREECE - DEC 4, 2011
