2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark brown color, topped with a rather small sized tan colored head. In teh aroma, you can find some caramel malt with some gentle coffee notes. Taste starts sweet, caramel presence with a bit of a soury feel. Some coffee notes. Not the best one, but pretty adequate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Birra abbastanza interessante, con leggere note di frutta rossa e un tocco di marzapane. Per il resto si avverte del tostato e del maltato (a dire il vero il tutto è abbastanza leggero). Bisogna lasciarla riscaldare prima che dia il meglio di sè. Corpo leggero.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color, average sized tan head that vanished immediately. Some lacing. Aroma of vanilla ice cream, caramel, nuts, strawberries. Taste of chocolate, nuts, caramel. Nice body considering its just 4,5%, lively carbonation. Winey acidic finish finish spoils a bit this cheap surprise. Very nice.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l bottle from a Famila in Jesolo, Italy. Cola dark red body, bubbles clinging to the edge of the glass, medium sized tan head going staying there long enough. Nice, if light aroma, grainy maltiness going to coffee, some dust. The taste... eh, not as much, the pleasant coffee notes are still there, but deep in the background, the foreground is a slightly tangy, vaguely appley weak bitterness that just doesn’t match the background well. In the end it just tastes kinda diluted. Oh, well, didn’t expect wonders.
