3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Birra molto particolare, leggermente vinosa, al palato particolarmente maltata. Bassa carbonatazion, stile particolare. Personalmente buona ma non ne gradisco piu di un paio di sorsi. Per lo stile molto ben fatta.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark ruby, violet hue. Very low beige head which quickly disappears. Watery texture, clean appearance. Aroma of salty caramel, toffee, molasses, raisins and umami. Mouthfeel bit on the thin side although alcohol is well hidden still. Low carbonation.Taste of licorice, maple syrup, salty soya sauce with hints of chocolate oak and vanilla in finish. Herbal, syropy ending. Well balanced, delicious and complex brew. Not really refreshing but enjoyed in awe.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque brown with a modest beige head. Pleasant, but slightly mild aroma containing notes of vanilla, scotch, caramel, toffee, cinnamon, biscuit, and malt. Mid bodied not unlike a syrup texture. Delectable coalescence of caramel, toffee, sweet scotch, oak, vanilla, cinnamon, with a lingering sweet and mildly hoppy finish. Very nice.
