Raddest possible bottle pours a clear dark brown with a thin light-beige head. Earthy milk chocolatey aromas, roasted malts, licorice, not much pepper in the nose. Flavor is dark chocolate with a spicy chipotle-like finish. The heat is mild but respectable. A little thin-bodied and oddly clean on the finish. I guess I can't expect a huge monster stout with 7-8% alcohol.

This beer poured out as a dark brown color. The head was thin but actually had a pretty good lacing despite the size. The smell of the beer had a good roasted aroma, some light chocolate and some spices on the nose. The taste of the beer has a good bitter sweet flavor. The mix of dark fruits chocolate and spice all come together for a unique taste. The mouthfeel is thinner than most Russian Imperial Stouts. Overall regardless of the style I think the beer is very good on it's own.

330ml bottle poured into tulip 9/9/11

A almost as black as night just a faint red edge once held to the light, massive 3 finger mocha head retains for a few minuets but leaves zero lace

S some coco with a little boozy licorice and cold coffee

T as it smells but a peppery spice that works for it, I pick up on a little molasses and some dark fruits, a little sweetness too and a hint of booze

M medium bodied but it nearly turns to foam and there's a little heat on the finish

O decent beer at the end of the day, the spicy mild chilli heat is a little unexpected but works for it somehow

interesting stuff and my first Imperial Stout from Italy, not the greatest depth of flavors but nothing to be ashamed of either
