fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle from Luppolo L’Ottavo Nano, Palermo
Cloudy amber color with medium sized head. The aroma is sweet and moderately spiced, like some Christmas bread, with candied orange. Medium body weight, with some caramel flavor, light residual sweetness, light ginger spiciness.
Moderate, pleasant, but a bit chaotic.

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Clear amber color, good creamy beige head. Caramelly toffeish aroma. Medium-bodied. Flavor is not so sweet. Starts sticky hoppy, then toffeish, almost diacetylic flavor. Lingering harsh bitterness in the aftertaste.

Moebbels (269) - FINLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Body is a slightly hazy dark amber color. The off-white head quickly settles down leaving some nice lacing behind. Nose has very mild notes of cinnamon, ginger and citrus fruits. Taste is nicely balanced between bitter and sweet, the finish is mildly dry. Carbonation is quite soft and the body feel oddly thin considering the alcohol content. Decent but fairly mild and somewhat bland.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2013
Draft @ Fiera della Birra di Ferrara, Nov 2013 courtesy of the Bad Attitude crew. Cuivrée, col blanc cassé. Arôme est malté caramel, grillé bouquet mettant en avant les malts avec une fine pointe d’épices hivernales. Palais est malté et fruité rouge venant de cet ajout genévrier, caramel assez présent. Pointe de carapils, pâle? pour un profil de levure assez belge. On ressent ici un peu moins l’ajout festif des épices des bières US avec un petit clin d’œil à un côté winter warmer avec la présence de cannelle. Pas vraiment noté le profil spécifique du gingembre.

Sissio (524) - Orsenigo, ITALY - NOV 16, 2013
clear copper, cream head caramel, malts, hint of citrus and herbs, orange peel, spices sweet, bitter astringent ending winey, caramelized malts, riped fruit like a belgian beer but with a bitter aftertaste

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2013
Bottled (thanks Bov!). Amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is banana, mild spices, toffee and some ripe fruits. Flavour is banana, yeast, toffee, sweet ripe fruits and mild berries. Nicely spicy, caramelly and fruity bitter aftertaste.

Kosmokrator (454) - ITALY - MAR 12, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 Alla spina. Ambrato chiaro con schiuma biancastra di media persistenza. Aroma dolciastro con note caramellate e debolmente luppolate; gusto simile con un finale un po’ appiccicoso e non molto bilanciato tra dolce e amaro. Corpo medio e struttura accettabile ma andrebbe rifinita un po’.

Dorqui (2081) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 2, 2013
Bottled at "GolosItalia 2013" - Brescia.
Ruby reddish dark color, limpid and charged aspect, discreet foamy head of good resistance. Corn and hoppy notes, elevated alcoholic perception, fresh and flowery aroma with something warm cellar final notes. Good bitterness, little liqueur-like impression, roast caramel and good bitter final of medium persistance.
