Una birra forte e specialissima ad alta fermentazione. Uno stile tra la Strong Ale e la Birra D’Abbazia. Ha un colore scuro ed una schiuma densa e persistente. Nonostante l’alta gradazione alcoolica è caratterizzata da un corpo non eccessivo che la rende facilmente bevibile. Va servita attorno ai 15°, temperatura che evidenzia il gusto di frutta matura: ciliegia e marasca, liquirizia, legno e un leggero affumicato. Accompagna molto bene le carni saporite i formaggi stagionati, i dessert ed il cioccolato, in particolare la torta Sacher. 18.5°

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - NOV 22, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Color ambrato scuro, limpido e con un cappello di schiuma beige di medio spessore. Aroma fruttato, mieloso e vinoso con lievi sentori di frutta secca; gusto inizialmente amarognolo con lievi note di malto tostato che evolve verso un finale più dolce con caramello e frutta passita. Buon corpo, non eccessivamente strutturata, discreta persistenza.

Bottle, brought back from Italy by a friend. Murky brown pour, lots of frothy off white head. Aroma has a lot of tart notes to it - strawberries mostly, fresh fruit, belgian yeast and something a bit funky too. Taste is sweet at first, but finishes quite acidic actually especially for the style. Palate is medium to full bodied, with moderate carbonation. They were on a good track when they made this beer, but it has some flaws I had a hard time getting over.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - DEC 7, 2007
750 ml bottle. A hazy amber beer with a medium sized disappearing beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of dark fruits, caramel and light licorice. Fruity flavour with some spices, quite sweet but balanced by the right grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite long finish with medium bitterness. There is something in both aroma and flavour taht keeps this beer from being better. However more than drinkable.
