A demi-sec ale brewed with whiskey yeasts, from the island of Islay, creating striking dryness and lively effervescence. The nose showcases almond and tropical fruits. The palate is malty, with flavors of plum, dried apricot, and spice. It’s finish is dry and warming from the high alcohol. Rare on tap!

HammerTroll (792) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 7, 2015
Cloudy brown color, minimal white head. Booze bomb, dark fruit and hints of oak. Taste is dark fruit, not so much alcohol as in aroma, yeast, caramel and eucalyptus? Medium body, soft carbonation. Extremely long fruity sweet finish. Not ordinary BSA.

Bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks Yoav. Hazy amber. Fruity, ripe peach, then a little plastic aroma, a little tarty fruitiness in the mouth. Medium body, juicy finish. Nice.

Cervesa amb una bona presència, el gust recorda a fruits vermells i a caramel, és bastant complexa. Cerveza con una buena presencia, el sabor recuerda a frutos rojos y a caramelo, es bastante compleja.

Fashawn (406) - Montesarchio, ITALY - OCT 25, 2014
Birra ambrata con una lieve schiuma croccante e fine, che svanisce in poco tempo lasciando l’orlo nel bicchiere e cerchi vaghi e saponosi. L’aroma è bello, sento un po’ di uva, mosto, prugne e frutta rossa tipo cielege. Un po’ di grano, qualche sentore floreale appena accennato. L’imbocco è dolce, con un bel miele alle castagne. Poi frutta secca, fichi e prugne. Chiusura secca, amaricante, con retrogusto lievemente etilico e le castagne e prugne liofilizzate che tornano ad emergere. Birra simile a tante altre ma unica, corpo rotondo ma non rotondissimo, nella media. Quasi pericolosamente beverina, aiuta la carbonazatazione abbastanza sostenuta che trattiene in bocca la bevanda. Buonissima birra, uno splendido esempio di quanto di buono ci sia anche in Italia.

TimE (4058) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2014
Brandy cherries, torrified wheat and bananas in the nose like a tropical fruit punch. Very malty. Big malty backbone, but nose does t really carry into mouth and a bit lost with flavors. Malty finish. Fairly straight forward. Ok
