COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prende vita dalla voglia di sperimentare di Teo. Una birra viva ad alta fermentazione che incontrando l’aria pura delle Langhe e riposando per lungo tempo è divenuta un prodotto nuovo, unico. All’aspetto si presenta limpida, priva di schiuma e gasatura con un colore ambrato pieno, di tonalità marroncina e riflessi ramati. Al primo naso esprime grande intensità dove emergono sentori di frutta secca e canditi con importanti e armoniose note che ci riportano al vino Madeira.

Un viaggio davvero incredibile, ricorda un passito ma più delicato. Al naso è particolarissima, di una complessità unica, fatico a descriverla sinceramente. Al palato pulisce tantissimo, non invadente ma dal carattere davvero forte. Una birra con i controcoglioni, la migliore bevuta sinora

Cervesa molt complexa tant en aroma com en gust, hi ha una barreja entre fruites vermelles, tocs torrats i a fusta. Cerveza muy compleja tanto en aroma como en sabor, hay una mezcla entre frutos rojos, toques tostados y a madera.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Poured turbid rusty brownish mahogany color with no head or carbonation. The nose is intense; a medley of plummy dark fruits, maple syrup, oaky bourbon, cherry. Tastes syrupy, sweet, complex, with no alcoho notes at all, some mid-palate plum, fig, and melted caramel flavor, and an oaky finish. This one is delicious.

250 ml bottle. BB end of the world. No # visible. From Italy. Courtesy of Brandman.
Dirty murky brown colour with no head. Strong alcohol, malt and some bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is quite incredible. It’s chocolate, berries, malt... It’s more like a liqueur than a beer. Extremely smooth. As fridge cold it feels like it’s room temperatured. Warming. But the flavour of the alcohol is super well hidden. Balanced. This is an experience. Time and money well spend. My goodness this is good.

BBE: End of the world. Dirty brown body, no head. Aroma has bread, nuts, caramel, raisins and alcohol. Flavour has lots of chocolate, raisins and huge alcohol. This is quite strange, but really nice. Oily and really velvety mouthfeel. Liquid chocolate. Some sweet tar rices when finishing and warms. Really huge beer. Finishes sweet and lasts really long.

Picked this up at Binny’s in Chicago. Split 2 ways @ 45F and allowed to warm. Expected this to be flat and it is but that’s no surprise. Dark brown, looks like burnt molasses and brown sugar and maple syrup. Smells like oaky, syrup, wood with a lot of fig and prune and booze. really smells fantastic. Oily mouthfeel. loads of booze rum, port wine and bourbon. lots of vanilla, straight up prune juice. sweet burnt sugar. Lovely!

Sample from DocLocke at CAH. Thanks, Jeff. Pours light brown almost completely flat. nose is corn sugar, toffee, brown malt and honey, first sip has a very sweet caramel sweetnes, big notes of sherry, brandi and a drambuie quality, nicely drinkable and warming, tons of complex flavor finish is rather clean for so much going on. nice beer
