3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Somewhat confused beer. Orange and spice like a tripel, dried fruit spiciness and rich dark flavors and aromas like a quad, with perhaps a hint of lactic sourness like a lambic. No reason it has to adhere to any specific style ... some of my favorites are American hopped tripels, or lambic IPAs, or any of the complex hybrids that seem to be popping up all over. Maybe just a tad more alcoholic than I expected. Nice, drinkable, great complement for the duck I and jerked chicken that I served with it.

750 ml bottle, probably from Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 9.5%. Dark brown colour with floaties, moderate off-white to beige head. Pleasant aroma of malts, caramel, orange peel and raisins, hints of mild spices. Medium sweet and mildly spicy flavour, again with notes of orange peel and raisins. Very moderate hops. A quite interesting and pleasant beer, which I’ll be happy to buy again for Christmas.

Very interesting, an Italian Winter Ale. Lovely flavour, almost like a perfect brown ale. I had this on new years eve 2013 in Skagen, Denmark. Much better than campagne.

Pours deep brown with a thin tan head. Fruity aroma of grapes and citrus. Definite grape flavor on the palate along with dark fruits. Low hop profile. Small, energenic bubbles. Suprisingly tasty beer from Italy.

Due dita di schiuma persistente che lascia il bicchiere merlettato. Il colore é bruno
L’aroma é leggero di malto
Il sapore in bocca ha carattere personalità. Sì sente l’arancia che compensa il dolce del malto.
Il corpo è piacevolmente setoso e corretta la canonizzazione

Clear dark amber with a small head. Aroma of raisins, orange liquor, vanilla, brunt sugar (candi sugar?), spice. Taste kinda sour, not nearly as sweet as the aroma or the alcohol content would suggest. Bitter-orange flavor really coming through at mid-palate.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very smooth, great beer. Had in bottle and on tap. On tap, it’s a deep orange with a thin white head. Smells of orange peel, a bit of vanilla. Taste is very smooth, can’t taste the alcohol, with a sweet finish. In the bottle, has a more herby, spice smell, less alcohol. Taste is a bit lighter and smoother, with less alcohol, and a bit creamier. Had at La Trappe’s Italian event. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Birra profonda e intensa che augura un natale pieno di gusto. Variamente speziata e con note penetranti di frutta scura che avvolgono il palato con una dolcezza molto bilanciata e godibile. Calda e alcolica. Superba.

Tria, Philadelphia tap: Pours reddish brown with a beige head. Aroma is dark fruit, a hint of yeast, and some spiciness. Taste is a very subdued sweetness, with a hefty helping of delicate, dark fruits. Nice mouthfeel. Alcohol is well covered. Quite good.
