3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Hazy and brown with small and grey head. Nose : tart , cooked fruits. Dried raisins. Sip : creamy texture, medium thick with good carbonation. Sweet tart with flavor of cooked cherries, banana and some other red fruits. Spicy, dominated by clove and nuts. Alcohol is well present. It's mostly sweet with lightly sour ending. The aftertaste reveals spices. Overall it's far from being a beer I might come back to.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep burgundy with beige head; cloudy once the yeast bottom is added, some floaters as well but in spite of that, good looking (the dark color helps in hiding them).
The nose is a mix of candi sugar and caramel, roasted malts, something fresher and more bitter in there as well
The taste is roasted, a bit of caramel but definitely not sugary, enough bitterness to be well balanced; somehow it manages to also make a refreshing impression, maybe it lacks a bit of body underneath the roast. In any case it’s a very nice taste, less sweet than the nose but solid and caramel-like. The alcohol is very well hidden. There isn’t much carbonation which is good as too much of it would interfere with the primary taste.
In the aftertaste, still the roast and caramel remain; definitely not lacking or too weak.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
13/02/2012 Bir&Fud Bottega (330ml bottle). Bruna, scura, impenetrabile, schiuma poco abbondante color bianco sporco. Aroma di malto, lieviti, molto speziata, cioccolata, frutti rossi. In bocca č dolce, caramello, ancora un accenno di cioccolato, lieviti, finale appena amarognolo. Non č bilanciatissima, risulta un po’ appiccicaticcia in bocca e stucchevole. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Senza infamia e senza lode.
