tabernae (178) - Latina, - JAN 25, 2013
Una delle cose più strane bevute durante queste feste, nel bicchiere è marrone con una micro testa beige, al naso sa di cenere più che l’affumicato classico, sfumature tostate. in bocca ancora fumo, torba, ma anche una profonda dolcezza e un mix di spezie ed erbe "molto particolare". complessa, calda, decisamente buona ma... non abusabile.

Bottiglia da 375 ml. Color tonaca di frate con poca schiuma di color nocciola. Al naso frutta matura, legno e terra. Al palato si sente molto l’alcol inizio legnoso con finale tornato.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks arizvisg. Cloudy dark brown. Ripe fruit, wine, figs, prune and then some smoke in the nose. Smoky, a little peaty and faintly fruity taste. Full body, round, no carbonation, chocolate finish.

tomer (1529) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - DEC 16, 2013
At a tasting, thanks Ariel DSG and zvikar, no head at all, murky and a little deep brown colour, aroma of chocolate, dried fruit and some fresh cut wood, dominant flavour of cherry liquor, jam, dried fruits and a hint of sweet spices, some alcohol showing through, feels quite heavy. Nice but not overly exciting.

Craft Clerkenwell. Bottle, thanks to Colin. Hazy dark amber beer, no real head. Light dry palate. Silky and somewhat sweet caramel malt. A little dark spice and mild dried fruits. Didn’t notice much smoke and no clue it was anything like 13.0%!!! All right.
