COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aroma initially characterized by pepper that fight in a field ruled by a rich fruity fragrance of dried fruits with ripen banana, toffee and a soft sweet chocolate fragrance. The attentive taster shouldn’t miss a sharp floral of rose and a sensation of must of wine always pleasant.

Bottle 750ml. Exceptional beer. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, fresh bread, and alcohol. Taste is sweet and bitter, and long lasting. Palate is syrupy and full bodied. Dark brown, with a thin head.

Very nice beer. This is my first beer from baladin, and it’s really great. It’s very smooth and tastefull. It’s the beer for cold winter evenings. It’s easydrinking. It has beautifull aroma from spices, and great, deep taste

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Cask at the White Horse Old Ale Festival, 27th Nov 09. Very dark brown looks. Amazing nose - cereal, christmas cake, spices. Tastes superb - so much spice and fruit, with a wonderful peppery hint of the alcohol in the finish. An utterly sublime Christmas beer. Awesome.

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Bottle. Sweet banana, rose, cherry, white pepper and barley malt aroma - excellent. Dark reddish brown with small head. Sweet floral fruit flavor up front followed by chocolate malt and astringent alcohol. Excellent - enjoying this one by the fire on a cold, dreary German New Year’s Day.

thewolf (11113) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2007
Bottle. on ØJ-dag. @ YNWA, Kolding
Pours a deep red with lots of bubbles in the liquid. Head is creamy, off white and stays for quite some time. Sweet aroma, light strawberries and a roasted spicyness. Full, lively and still a bit oily mouthfeel. Flavour is dominated by slightly burned caramel, apples, chocolate, strawberries, toffee, cinnamon, coriander and cardemum. The spices never ’take over’, lying perfactly balanced in the back. Lightly dry and spicy sweet aftertaste.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2008
Pours a very dark amber/ chestnut-brown color with a huge tan foam head. Spicy aroma with hints of dark fruit, pepper, malt, cinnamon and alcohol. Flavor consists of a roasted maltiness mixed with a creamy dark fruit presence. Hints of cherry, plum, raisin, candi sugar and pepper.

ogivlado (5539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 6, 2009
Bottled 750ml. -Dark brown coloured, small to medium pale brown head, chocolate and plums in the nose. Sweet malty, dark fruits and alcoholic with notes of chocolate and spices. Nutty notes in the finish. Smooth and very drinkable for 9% ABV. Great Noel and so far the best Italian beer I’ve tried.
