(ik haat B. C.) A Natale, Kerst in fiammingo, siamo tutti più buoni. Anche la nostra Kerst vorrebbe esserlo, ma non riesce a togliersi di dosso l’istinto naturale a far del male. Attenzione, dunque. Schiuma prorompente e cremosa, lo spettro olfattivo è dominato da un violento fruttato che ricorda le mele caramellate ed in secondo piano la pasta reale siciliana. Etilica in bocca, con un attacco morbido subito aggredito da una tagliente freschezza acida. Da abbinare ad una fredda serata invernale.

Following the style playbook. All about malts, spice and cinammon. A good drink for a northern hemisphere Christmas I’m tipping. Light touch in the back palate, surprisingly so given the abv of 10.2%.

Gradino sotto la reserva, ma soo un gradino. E’ una birra spettacolare, belga fino al midollo!

On tap at Tippler’s Tap. A big ballsy Belgian strong ale with a mouth numbing alcohol content that sends an alcohol burn down your throat - in a good way. Packed full of spiced fruit aromas and flavours. This s a beer that needs to be sipped and appreciated. Light amber colour with a sticky residue of ace left on the glass. The Italians certainly know their beer.

Bottle, 10C. Hazy golden amber with a finger of cream head. Aroma of boiled oranges, earth, sweet black tea. Heavy but just creamy mouthfeel, low but useful carbonation. Rich macerated dried stone fruits, some light citrus and spice (cloves, some pepper) notes. Enough bitterness and leaning towards dry at the end such that the richness doesn’t overstay. Oranges - sweet and mouldering - linger. Not really my sort of thing, but lovely texture and balance appeal.

Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2012
330ml bottle, lotto 349-10, bought in March 2012 at Johnny Off License (Via Veio), in Roma and kept in my cellar for drinking pleasure this Christmas. Pours a firm off-white head and a near-clear, amber coloured body. Sediments to the last pour. No lacing. Aroma of dusty hops and fresh, sweet fruits. Earthy malts, dry lemon and overall a candy sweet fruity taste profile softened by spices and partially offset by bittersweet oranges to the finish. Warming and velvety mouthfeel. Mostly integrated alcohol. Nice, however, too sweet for a higher score (Saturday eve at home, Tromsø 29.12.2012).

Hirotoma (471) - Bologna, ITALY - NOV 27, 2012
Buona ma non una delle mie favorite di extraomnes. Brutta ambrata e sporca, poca schiuma e poco persistente, uniche note negative, gran aroma sapore di canditi e frutta cotta! Alcolica ma alcol mascheratissimo retrogusto persistente.

Pours amber with a white head. Aroma Belgian hops sweet malts on the palate, a very nice beer.

Kosmokrator (516) - ITALY - NOV 7, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Color arancio scuro nebuloso con una schiuma bianca persistente di medio spessore. Aroma con sentori di albicocca, lievito e bucce di agrumi candite; gusto dolce con note di albicocche secche e zucchero di canna, mela cotta e glassa di zucchero verso il finale. Persistenza media, al palato è rotonda, setosa, quasi mielosa. E’ meno corposa dell’atteso e l’abv è ben mascherato: una possibile conseguenza, assieme all’effervescenza debole, dei due anni passati in cantina.

lembeek (143) - ITALY - JUN 14, 2012
Colore ambrato. Schiuma bianca, compatta, persistente. Aroma di malto con sentori di mele, coriandolo, zenzero. In bocca dolce, burrosa, con l’alcol bene mascherato, una buona acidità e un finale secco

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2012
hazy gold, frothy white head with ample lacing. Nose is dry hay, light tea, bit of sweet earth. Sweet red grape and clay, hay mid with nice caramelized brown sugar finish. Dry end despite sweetness, rich, layered.
