Deep brown with a huge tan head, lasting soapy look, retention lacing galore... Quite spicy, anise like spice fruity, maybe even peppermint, and the flavor profile matches with a minty wintergreen grassy like flavor under a fair amount of roastiness... Medium full bodied...
Bottle at Luppolo Station (Rome), grazie Fabrizio. Black pour, big beige foam. Nose: sage, menthol, licorice. Mouth: mint, licorice and after eight cookies. Lovely

Dark brown to black colored, medium tan creamy, good lasting head. Aroma is molasses, brown sugar and toffee, dark fruits, walnut and bit roasted malt. Taste is medium+ sweet malt, brown sugar and toffee, licorice and dark fruits, carob and molasses, some low herbal bitterness. Medium to full bodied, sticky, soft carbonation. Alcohol well masked, some warmth present. Very good, although the bottle was from 2011 so any BIPA notes have long gone.
