Pours dark amber with creamy tan head. Smells of malts, caramel, and hay come through. Tastes of malts, hops, bitter, caramel, and toffee. Has a creamy mouth feel and light carbonation with a malty finish.

75 cl bottle at Moeder Lambic. Pours hazy orange to brown with a thick, creamy and tan head. Aroma is solid hoppy, toffee malty mixed with piney hops. Bitter, toffee and dark roasted malty. Mild citric touch. Dark toffee almost chocolate. Lasting bitter and toasted dry malty into the far finish.

bouteille 75cl, merci à Mickey et aux Forestins, partagée au 3ième festival Brassicole de Tournai. Lot# L12025, BB 04/05/2018. Cuivrée, col crémeux beige-blanc cassé. Arôme est houblonné, avec ce côté grillé malté agréable. Note aussi un bouquet fleuri oscillant sur le feuillu, fleuri et citronné. Malt est aussi de la partie ajoutant un coté chocolaté et grillé. Palais est complexe, houblonné avec cette signature italienne de TM typique. Malt grillé avec des notes de café au lait, le tout suivi par le houblon citronné voire pin (rappelant fortement les aiguilles de pin). Le tout est sec avec une fine douceur malté - bready en fin de bouche. Pointe d’épice, levure. Fin de bouche présente une belle rondeur fruitée avec une amertume présente, certes, mais laissant ample place aux malts. Une bière que j’aurai préféré voir en 37.5 ou 33cl plutôt que en 75cl. Au final, la bière est sympa, se rapprochant d’une black IPA rappelant la Space Invader de Toccalmatto. Cette dernière a aussi le mérite de mettre en avant des houblons zélandais dont trois sont nouveaux pour moi.

Une robe cuivrée dans un magnifique verre mi-orge mi-houblon; un parfum torréfié, des notes houblonnées sur des agrumes avec un peu d’exotisme (ananas),; bien équilibré au goût et bien atténuée .. On y replonge avec un réel plaisir ..On est bien dépaysé..Tellement elle nous fait voyager ..Merci !

750ml bottle. Beer poured a dark copper brownish color with a light brown medium sized head, nice lacing. The aroma had a present roasted malt nose with some chocolate and vanilla notes as well. Touch of citrus hop aroma. The taste gives you a nice roasted malt character up front and is balanced well against a slight hop bitterness, pleasant. There are also notes of vanilla. After giving the beer additional time to warm up, the taste has more depth with some dark fruit notes, raisiny. Overall the beer is medium body, well balanced and easy to drink.
