Pale brown coloured, small (almost no) off-white head, malty alcoholic nose. Slight roasted malt, caramel and jam like dried fruits with notes of chocolate and alcohol. Touch of tiramisu in sweet malty finish. Nice brew.
1/11 0.33 l bottle from Beer8 shop, Genoa. It poured darker brown, murky body with tiny brownish head. Very nice aroma of caramel with dark fruits like plums. Slightly alcoholic as well. Similar, but slightly more complex flavor, now it adds some chocolate, herbal spices and some different fruitiness. Creamy soft mouthfeel. Full bodied with long, sweetish and warming finish. Not too complex as these might happen to be, but it’s very pleasant brew and definitely the best Italian sample I’ve tried so far. I’m sorry we didn’t take more beers from this brewery.

Very dark brown with a decent light beige head. Excellent chocolate notes, great malty base and some good ballsy boozy notes. Drinks just like a Belgian dubbel but with some English strong stouty character. Fruity chocolate finish with some late but excellent malt. Very good.
At GBBF 2009. Lovely choc aroma. Really impressive. Hot choc aroma. Good in mouth, touch of sourness, Good Belgian strong/Imp stout at the same time. Good though. fonefan (52351) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2009
