COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Teo ha scelto per questa birra una sottile aromatizzazione con un caffè di grande prestigio,molto delicato, selezionato da Leonardo Lelli. Si ottengono particolari snsazioni amabilmente aromatiche dove le note mandorlate si affiancano con piacevolezza alle note tostate. Quasi per gioco si è voluto esaltare questo eccezionale caffè inserendone un chicco intero in ogni bottiglia

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2015
75 cl bottle @ home, BBE 2016
Aroma has coffee, chocolate and some ripe fruits typical to Belgian ales. Flavour has strong mocha notes, ripe fruits and mild spicy tones. Some semi-dark chocolate in the finish. Interesting and delicious combination of Belgian ale and coffee. Unfortunately the coffee steps aside after some sips and the finish turns dry and bitter in a bit harsh way. Gets even some cardboardy tones in the second glass when yeast is poured on. This started good but did not end well.

Sparf (171) - Östersund, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2015
Förvånansvärt liten doft. Söt malt, aning kaffe och karamell blandas med en pepprig örtighet. Vacker mörkröd bärnstensfärg och ett tätt varaktigt skum. Söt och torr brygd. Framför allt karamell och malt. Ingen höjdare. Alkoholen väl dold, bara en värmande känsla. Eftersmaken har en djup beska som fungerar bra ihop med alkoholen. Fyllig kropp och välavvägd kolsyra.

alteregoo (312) - POLAND - FEB 18, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Piana sycząca, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko znika do kożuszka, barwa ciemno miedziana, brązowa, wyraźna zawiesina drożdżowa (fuj). W aromacie z butelki pachnie jak dubbel, po przelaniu natomiast pojawia się bardzo przyjemna świeżo mielona naturalna kawa w akompaniamencie suszu owocowego, lekkiej paloności, likieru czekoladowego i karmelu. W tle delikatna wanilia i pumpernikiel. W smaku kawa także wyraźna, jest obecna zarówno w pierwszym smakowym odczuciu jak i w posmaku na końcu. Piwo jest dość treściwe, średnio pełne i aksamitne, lekka słodycz, owocowość (z ciemnym winogronem, rodzynkami i figami na czele), fajna kwiatowość, prażone ziarno, paloność od ciemnych słodów. Goryczka delikatna, ziołowa i alkoholowo-kawowy finisz. Nagazowanie średnie, bardzo drobne. Świetna interpretacja stylu ciemny Belgian Strong Ale - dodatek tak szlachetnej kawy naturalnej wyraźnie go wzbogaciła i wyniosła na wyżyny tego, co ten styl ma do zaoferowania. Bardzo fajny balans pomiędzy deserową słodyczą kandyzowanych owoców, kawowymi nutami oraz ziołowym chmielem i perfekcyjnie ułożony, niemały przecież, alkohol, czynią z tego trunku coś znacznie więcej niż "piwo". Dodając do tego piękną butelkę, zalakowany korek i odpowiednią cenę, możemy przez chwilę poczuć się jak "prawdziwi piwni arystokraci" :)
