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°

Slayer85 (1044) - 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.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - SEP 21, 2007
Assaggiata a Cheese 2007; forse non era molto in forma, ma mi ha proprio deluso: aroma ottimo, malto, miele, un poco di liquerizia e vaniglia. Ma il sapore oltre ad essere sbilanciato sul dolce (e a offrire ben poco di quanto promesso dal naso) culmina in un’insistente nota metallica che manda tutto a remengo. Peccato, sarà per la prossima volta.

Beautiful dark amber color; persistent creamy head. Aromaof malt and cereals. Good body strength, medium sweetness, good malt and caramel taste, supported by a good bitterness level. A solid and very pleasant Strong Belgian Ale.
