Rune (8703) - Tromsø, - DEC 31, 2012
The 330ml 2011 vintage bottle with lotto 214-11 was bought in late March 2012 at Johnny’s Off License (Via Veio) in Roma. Cloudy amber coloured body, slightly off-white head fading to a patchy surface. Spotty lacing to the glassware. Spiced fruity aroma, hints of apricot and herbal hops. Subdued vapour of alcohol. The taste character has got a bittersweet citrus peak with candy sweetness and yeasty fruitiness beneath. Lingering bittersweet ending with noticeable alcohol. Soft in the mouth. Full bodied. Enjoyed for about an hour at home in Tromsø, 30.12.2012.

AlchemikalGab (48) - Borgomanero (Novara), ITALY - JAN 20, 2015
33cl bottle from my cellar (1 year and 2 months approximately). Pours a clear, amber coloured liquid, with a thin, off-white head. I can smell candies, apple pie, vanilla, honey and even some funk. Taste is mostly fruity, sweet, and mellow, you can detect just a little warming sensation (it?s 12% ABV but it doesn?t feel like it at all) with a slightly tart finish. Body is impressively thin, carbonation is soft.

oliodnb (429) - ITALY - JAN 13, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours light hazy amber with two fingers of light beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, candied sugar, sweet fruits (raisins, dates), some nuts and some yeast along with a light alcoholic note. Taste is similar with less sweetness, lots of fruity notes, some acidity, some alcohol again, spices. Medium body, light carbonation, very good long lasting sweet finish with only minimal bitterness. Excellent.

ippopotamo36 (441) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 13, 2014
On tap at the Birre Sotto l'Albero festival in Rome-ITALY (Macche and Bir&Fud). Pours deep golden going amber with a compact white head. Complex nose: spices, aroma of incense. Mouth mirrors the nose with the addiction of some caramel. Great one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - NOV 24, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2014 Color ramato-arancio leggermente nebuloso con un velo poco persistente di fragile schiuma bianca. Avvolgenti sentori vinosi e dolciastri di frutta fresca, zucchero candito e marmellata; gusto dolce, rotondo, fruttato, caramellato e debolmente agrumato. Corpo pieno, struttura oleosa e vellutata al palato, effervescenza gentile. Sontuosa ale invernale irrobustita dall’abv ed "ammorbidita" dai tre anni passati in cantina.

sebletitje (7027) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de Roy’s Beer, Milano. Reserva 2013, 12%, bottle #3912, BB 31/08/2018, lotto# 231/13. De couleur orangée-ambrée, col fin blanc cassé. Arôme est profond au niveau fruité fermenté, petit bouquet de barrique tirant sur le vin blanc. Rétro-nasal mielleux et complexe avec une petite touche surette. Palais rappelant une bière de DeDolle avec une influence très belge, les 12% ressortent fort bien, fruité fermenté rappelant l’abricot, miel et pointe de barrique. Le tout est un peu liquoreux, collant au lèvres sur des notes sucrées (brun?). A déguster à son aise, complexe et intéressante, très belge dans l’inspiration mais avec ce petit plus italien fort appréciable.

Davros (2106) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2014
Pours hazy amber with very little in the way of head. Nose shows funky notes suggesting at acidity, a bit of sweet confectionery and some caramel and booze. Similar flavours, slight acidity, lots of confectionery-like sweetness and a fair bit of booze. Some candied fruit. Carbonation seems very low.

Ragnampiza (558) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAR 12, 2014
330 ml bottle from ArtigianBeer, served in a snifter glass. 2013 vintage, bottle n° 278. Deep sunrise orange, almost amber, with an average off-white head which dissipated leaving a nice and persistent thick ring of foam. Intense aroma, quite herbal/medicinal with notes of toffee, strawberry jam, sour black cherry, and diapers. Unused diapers, fortunately! Just a hint of booze, but nothing resembling the actual ABV. Quite complex in the mouth, revealing different layers of flavours each time. Definitely plums, dark fruits under spirits and baked apples. Alchoolic finish, with a pleasent warm down the throath, quite sweet and honey-like. Average carbonation, medium body and oily texture. A fantastic sipper.
