COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra di color nocciola, robusta e molto corposa, si presenta con un elevato tenore alcolico. Ha un naso moderatamente fruttato con sentori prevalenti di frutta secca. In bocca si percepisce distintamente il malto, il caramello, la liquerizia e un sentore finale di cioccolato. Una vera birra da meditazione.

fiammanghilla (513) - Genova, ITALY - JUN 8, 2014
Bottiglia 33cl @ exultate. Scura con schiuma nn troppo persistente. Tirata fuori da un surgelatore più che da un frigo, quindi recensione un po' falsata dalla temperatura. Birra forte belga senza troppe pretese. Maltata ma comunque bevibile. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

Countbeer (4320) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle: Past BB: Served in a Grimbergen glass: Medium to small creamy foamy head onbtop of a deep dark tuby colored beer. Aromas of barley malts, watery raisin, dough, light spices, toast, light prunes, light marzipan and sweet wood. Flavours of prunes, raisin, barley malts, some spices, barley malts, yeast, leaves, light sticky, some sweet oat, sweet wood and light sticky yet not thick at all... Aftertaste is a mix of barley malts, prunes, bitters, herbs and sticky leaves. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium to lightly fuller bodied and a creamy texture. Quite a nice beer! Reminds me a bit of Rochefort.

Birra molto particolare dal tenore alcolico elevato che ne induce un consumo da meditazione. Ottimo equilibrio. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85
