10/20/2012. 750 ml. bottle. Pours redbrown with an off-white head. Aromas of caramel, spice, dark roasted malt, chocolate. Bitter from the hops with booze right off. Good stuff!

Nice aroma that fades. Not to sweet but almost lacks in body over time. But overall well balanced. Nice brew. Maybe not the best but up there. No head.

When you open the bottle, the aroma is subtle. The ale doesn’t show you much, she wants you to drink it. Then, she shows its qualities. Exceptional and, in fact, a big ale. When I drink it, I remind the magnificent Ayinger Celebrator but much, much better. Full malt flavour, with its sweetness but very balanced (chocolate malts?). Smooth hop flavour. Alcohol? It’s playing a hide-and-seek game with your mouth with superb ability.
The pee of gods, as a friend of mine said. Or a malted masterpiece. Brutal job, Alesmith.

I think Tim and Rachel brought this one in. Deep amber brown pour with a bubbly white head. Sweet malty aroma, nutty, dark fruits and molasses. Thick rich flavor with all the above mentioned flavors and a nice balance that’s not cloying. Pretty tasty.

Pours a hazy copper brown from the bottle with minimal bubbly head and lacing. Aroma of slight smoke and heavy caramel malt. Taste follows, nice balance and alcohol well hidden. Great beer.

Pours a deep dark brown. Large creamy light brown head, moderately lasting with good lace. Great complex malty sweet, roasty; toffee, caramel, dark fruit, some chocolate, light smoke and spices. Mouthfeel as described: lush, full, rounded. Great balance - clean. Sweet/roast/bitter/alcoholwarmth. Complex. Super enjoyable. So well made.

Bottiglia 75cl, ordinata su domus birrae e bevuta a casa.
rubino carichissimo, quasi nera,
con schiuma marroncina finissima e persistente.
Al naso sentori da dopplebock, molto malto e frutta matura.
In bocca conferma una maltatura predominante, alcol sul finale che si fa amaro.
