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.

leghorn99 (57) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 9, 2015
Si presenta di un bel colore marrone scuro con riflessi rubino; buona la schiuma, compatta e cremosa, ottima persistenza. Naso maltato, con evidenti note di caramello e frutta scura, che si uniscono a molteplici odori di spezie. In bocca è rotonda e delicata, ritroviamo malto e caramello, frutta scura (prugne, fichi), zucchero di canna, una punta di liquirizia e spezie. L’alcool rimane ben nascosto, e non disturba la beva, la carbonazione è leggera. Leggero tocco amaro nel finale che simula un tocco di equilibrio a "La grande dolcezza". Birra che resta comunque di grande complessità, e che vale la pena avere sempre in cantina.

Cunningham (5085) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2015
Deep amber color with a fine off white head that leaves a fine lacing on the glass. Bready, malty, fruity and some spices in the aroma. Medium + body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Soft carbonation and a bit oily texture. Dried fruits, toffee, bready and a bit spicy flavor. Nice evening sipper. Some alcohol coming up.

Bill Becker (449) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - DEC 11, 2014
It pours a cloudy dark brown, small head of foam, near no lacing left behind. Smells of dark fruits, yeasty, some spice, almost a tartness to it. Fruit is light in the taste as is everything else. A bit of a shy brew except for the abv. I get some bready notes from time to time as I do some vanilla notes. Very slight tartness. Pretty light bodied with, I think, too much carbonation. Not bad but not worth the $$$
