COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nasce da un “pensiero perverso” di Teo e da anni di ricerca. Una birra ad alta fermentazione che ha subito un processo di macro ossidazione e una maturazione in botti di rovere che le donano profumi di datteri, caramello e un delicato ricordo di legno. Al bicchiere si presenta priva di gasatura e schiuma con note di colore bruno con riflessi ramati

Aged in oak barrels

For the sake of conversation just the ratings. Can’t help but I just hate smartphones. Sweet vainilla, nuts and sugary finish.

Draft at Eataly. Part of a flight. Red brown color. Carmel color. Carmel taste. Has an offensive smell like rotten plums. Taste was surprisingly good. Carmel candy sweet warm. Enjoyable but not too much of it please.

Cerbier (86) - - JAN 2, 2014
Aus der Flasche im Open Baladin in Rom. Dunkelbraun kein Schaum kaum Kohlensäure. Ein Aroma von süßlichen getrochneten Früchten - und so schmeckt es auch, fast wie ein Portwein. Sensationell

bobroman (268) - Torun, POLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Complex aroma of malts and alcohol simmilar to brandy. Clear dark amber body with no head. Very sweet but deliciously flowing down the throat with perfectly hidden alcohol. Perfect aftertaste.

bhensonb (10361) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Tap at Open Baladin Roma. Info on the menu was rum barrel. Pours dark amber with no head. Aroma seems rum/raisin with a little alcohol. Near full bodied. Flavor is rum/raisin with brown sugar or treacle. And mild heat. Finishes not towards dry. Delicious sipper. Some oak concentrates with time. Wonderful stuff.
