Huge fig and date aroma. Slightly sour grainy taste. Then there’s the nuts too, but they’re quite subtle. It’s a touch acidic, and the graininess is high. There’s however a sweet sticky breakfast-cereal finish, despite the fact that the taste isn’t sweet. Feet firmly planted in the ’fermented wort from grains’ school, which I like. Never felt a dot over 6%, good show!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
No head left. Copper-amber beer. Astringency in the nose, solvent, bitterish. Sweet-sour taste, unbalanced, going into sharpish MF, more acidity and astringency, and thin body. More than probably infected.

Bottle. Hazy amber body with a creamy off white head. Caramel, chestnut, sweet fruit and some yeast in the nose. The flavour is very fruity with some spicy yeast and caramel. Ok.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small white coarseish head. Muddy brown body. Caramelly hoppy vinegary aroma. Dry-acidic caramelly wooden metallic taste with fruity wild berry notes. Mid-to-thin body. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry astringent acidic aftertaste with wooden vinegar notes. Too acidic for me. (0.75l bottle at Oslo beer junta tasting.)

Bottle from Johnny’s, Rome.
Red, little carbonation, vinous aroma.
Lemon playing with the sweet malt, a hint of perfume.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 Bottle at Taste Firenze. Aroma of caramel and chestnuts. Flavor is dry with minerals, chocolate, and chestnuts. Tasty, with good nutty character and decent body. Rather sweet.
