Bottle from Eataly, Genoa, consumed at home Tuesday 14th February 2017 (a departure from the norm’, sees us drinking on a Tuesday night, oops) Black as yer ’at, tangy dark fruits, a little prune but is good. Like it because it’s not too cloyingly sweet and it’s not OTT. Nice stuff. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5 L_Lovecraft (616) - - FEB 11, 2017
Strong notes of coffee, hints of caramel, practically black with a good tan head, medium body, not too carbonated, again coffee, some cocoa and licorice...not one of my favorite but very good. carlorox (19) - siena, ITALY - SEP 30, 2016
Notevole corposità, si avverte il sapore della torrefazione e un piacevolissimo retrogusto di caffè e cioccolato. Aromatica, piacevole e straordinariamente equilibrata. BenL8 (220) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2016 Pours nice inky black with a thin layer of foam around the edges. Aroma is intriguing - roasty but with fruity/berry aromas. Has some berry vinegar/balsamico notes. Flavour is rich and roasty, also sweet and quite heavy. Not very bitter. Finishes sweet and rich and a little warming. Nice. iquito (12) - - JUL 1, 2016
Solid imperial stout. Very dark and roasty in taste, long lasting and agreeable aftertaste. Slight hints of berries and for an imperial stout quite a light touch.

330mL bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of leather, red wine, and balsamic -- doesn’t smell like an imperial stout. Flavour brings out a mix of bitter molasses, licorice, some red wine, a little leather and balsamic. Finishes with cola and soy sauce. A lot different to typical North American impie stout. Intriguing, but not particularly impressive. Not so good. Ferris (15901) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2016
Bottle - Lots of sweet molasses and cola notes. Jet brown with almost no head. Sweet dark malts, dark chocolate and a sweet finish. Very light and sweet. kerenmk (4802) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 1, 2016

Color marrone scuro al palato ha malti torrefatti, caffè e cioccolato con una strana nota indefinibile, che rovina un po questa birra tutto sommato ben fatta.
