(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.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a deep amber with no head. Little to no Carbonation. Nose has dried cherries, oak, red wine and candied sugar. Taste is like a syrup mouth feel. Lots sour fruits, cherries and brown sugars. Booze is evident. Might be a fraction old. Couldn't finish this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cagou007 (1037) - FRANCE - JAN 22, 2014
Pours hazy amber with a medium white head. Nose is yeast and apple, reminding me of Orval. In mouth some fruity aromas are quickly overwhelmed by a strange acidity with some spicy and peperry notes. Final is dry and sour, with a strange aftertaste that reminds me of... ham !? Weird stuff.

Davros (2773) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2013
Pours dark amber with a lasting head. Nose shows brown sugar, confectionery, a gooseberry lambic note, horseblanket and lemon. Unorthodox and probably not intended but nice. Some of the funky notes transfer through as flavours but it’s more about the malt; very sweet with big confectionery sugar-like notes. Some booze but reasonably well-integrated. A bit too sweet. Could use a fair bit more carbonation.

Mortlach (1920) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 4, 2013
0471272013 Ma che siete venuti a fà (330ml bottle). Ambrata scarica, abbastanza limpida, morbida schiuma pannosa, abbondante e persistente. Al naso sentori fruttati e di zucchero candito, mandorle e frutta rossa (ciliegie). In bocca l’alcol si sente parecchio, l’attacco è dolce, sul finale vira verso un leggero acidulo, complessa e appagante. Corpo pieno, carbonazione media. Non male! La versione Reserva ha qualcosa in più.

Stew41 (1929) - Phuket, THAILAND - FEB 16, 2013
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%.

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.
