Bottle #25 at yesprs mafioso blind tasting. Hazy orange coloured with a small off white head. Sweet aroma of caramel and smoke with flowery notes. Sweet flavour of fruits, caramel and smoke with flowery and burnt notes.

Dark murky brown ale covered by a light off-white head. I’m afraid my experience somewhat differs from Joris’. First, when I bought this at the excellent Off License store in London, I was told this was a smoked strong ale. From the nose, you would not necessarily guess, it is certainly mildly smoky, but the strong beer part is more obvious:) Strongly honeyed and shooting its ingredients in a straightforward manner. It grows meaty in mouth and indeed quite woody, in a smoky way, but quite dry. On parallel, as is often the case with Italian beers, there is a ton of sedimented yeastiness in there and it does not feel very clean, powdery even, but with pleasant pear and peppery spiciness yeast derivatives. Surprisingly light-medium body, but cleansing carbonation enhances the unclean powdery, yeasty,, woody dry finish.

No head but little rim; red-amber beer. Wood, (milk)chocolate, some dryness converted into the nose; acetone when warming up. Very wry, woody taste, woodstripper, going in the MF to astringency, certainly in the finish. Burning MF, dry-out effect. Very severe(ly dry) beer, but above all not balanced.
