LOVERBEER PAPESSA

Loverbeer Papessa. Italian beers; there is something suss about them. So when I saw an Italian Russian Imperial Stout (RIS) I was sceptical. Italian lagers are average at best, let alone making a good RIS. However, a Beerio likes the thrill of trying something different.

It’s dark brown like a porter with a nice dark malt aroma but virtually no head. The first thin you notice it’s incredibly thin, lacking mouthfeel and too carbonated for a RIS. Then comes the assault on the senses - a wave of overpowering acidity. It tastes like you’ve just regurgitated an espresso into your mouth. As it warms up it just tastes more and more like balsamic vinegar.

After taking two more sips I abandoned ship. I asked the barman what the story was. “Yeah it’s a sour beer, that brewery only makes sour beers” he says…. Why you no say this on brewing notes?! Filth.
