Ducato Verdi Imperial Stout (6/10)

Birrifico Del Ducato is an Italian brewery.  They produce a variety of beer styles, including pale ale, oatmeal stout, barleywine, saison, and tripel.  Verdi Imperial Stout is an export stout brewed with chili peppers.

The beer pours into the glass a pitch black color.  The tan head is coarse and thick, dissipating very slowly in the glass.

The flavor is a fairly standard stout.  It's a little bitter, has some leather and chocolate notes to it.  The chili pepper burn is very, very subtle.  If you didn't know they were in there, you might not notice the flavor.

Beer Advocate's reviewers rate it an 88, or "good".

ABV: 8.2%
IBU: 100 (per Frisco Grille) - I personally think it's much lower
My rating 6/10
