Lele (370) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 24, 2016
ASPETTO: ambrata torbida, dalla schiuma abbastanza bianca, fine e persistente. AROMA: note floreali e di cioccolato, con un po’ di liquoroso. Abbastanza intenso. GUSTO: in bocca č un po’ particolare. Ci sono vari sapori, tra i quali il caramello (non tanto), un liquoroso (che si sente soprattutto se la si lascia scaldare) e lo speziato, insieme ad altri. Conclude con un leggero finale amarognolo. Sapori non collegati benissimo tra di loro, forse la bottiglia che ho assaggiato era ancora giovane. CONCLUSIONE: piuttosto difficile dare un giudizio complessivo. La birra mi č piaciuta molto, ma la trovo lontana dalla perfezione, sia per quanto riguarda lo "slegamento" dei sapori, sia per una certa -a mio avviso- lontananza dallo stile. Diciamo che la salva il liquoroso dato dal Cognac, altrimenti l’avrei paragonata piů che altro ad una Belgian Strong Ale.

Koelschtrinker (16324) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2012
Süßlicher, malzig alkoholischer Beginn. Im Mittelteil etwas wässrig, schade. Malziger werdend, süßlich, deutlich brotig. Nett – aber reißt einen nicht vom Hocker. /8/8/10/9/10

Bottle from La Cave ŕ Bulles, Paris, as Garrigues Bičre en Barrique n°1
Hazy amber color, with minimum head. The aroma is simpler than expected, apples and booze. Simple flavor, mild sweetness, some overripe apples, and a boozy character.
Unimpressive, at least.
