bigguns22 (752) - Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Aroma is light,sweet and some bread like dessert bread. Complex subtle flavors that are missed if to cold. The raisins and orange are not over powering and all most hard to find till it warms up. Very pleasant and would drink again year round.

Diabobale (369) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 19, 2016
Altamente stucchevole, troppo caramello e alcol al naso, beva non facile anche rispetto allo stile. Speziatura poco valutata con troppo spazio alla frutta, soprattutto all’uva passa.

veceo (984) - CROATIA - JAN 16, 2016
8% ABV. Cloudy deep amber color, average sized off white head. Aroma of malt, bubblegum, fruits, detergent. Taste is very sweet, malty, dull, honeyish notes, some fruitiness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Yeah, not the biggest fan.

lello4ever (403) - ITALY - DEC 28, 2015
Si presenta marrone quasi nera con ampia schiuma beige molto compatta. Molto buona al naso con note tostate, speziate e cioccolato. Al palato molto beverina, dolce, morbida e per niente invasa dall’alcol. Note di dark fruits. Carbonazione minima. Ottima.

Hopmaestro (985) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2015
Aroma is fruity with orange and lime. Slight toffee and yeast. Taste hides the alcohol well and it’s well balance, although quite one dimensional. Low carbonation.

leghorn99 (193) - Livorno, ITALY - DEC 26, 2015
Nel bicchiere è di color ambrato carico, con piccole particelle di lievito che emergono in sospensione; la schiuma è presente e grossolana, chiara, scompare abbastanza in fretta lasciando un anello a copertura. L’aroma non è molto intenso; una speziatura da lieviti, caramello, leggeri sentori di frutta sotto spirito all’alzarsi della temperatura. Al palato arriva abbastanza morbida, con una basa carbonazione; il corpo è medio, l’alcool (9.5%) è molto ben nascosto e non intralcia mai la bevuta. In bocca è dolce, ricorda a tratti certi vini liquorosi con sentori diffusi di frutta sotto spirito (soprattutto amarena e ciliegie) e di frutta secca; in sottofondo, troviamo anche caramello e toffee, mentre quasi nulla è la presenza di spezie che invece avevamo trovato nell’aroma. Birra dolce, ma caratterizzata da una buona secchezza; l’alcool arriva a scaldare verso la fine, lasciando un bel retrogusto avvolgente dove emerge anche una punta amaricante di malto tostato.
