SamTheBarrel (509) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2014
750ml brown luxurious looking bottle with a convenient ceramic swing top cap, poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is hazy mahogany with a small khaki colored head, that dissipated quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of caramel, prunes, orange marmalade and toffee. Flavours of caramel, prunes, orange marmalade, nutty notes and bread. Taste is medium-heavy sweet and light-medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, slightly syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Grado Plato Strada S. Felice has a quite unique flavor profile, pretty good overall but overly sweet.

astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2009
Amber. Long, foamy head. Aroma: Rye, alcahol, caramel. Flavor: Malt, dry fruits, rye, alcahol, spice. Dry finish. There is a certain complexity to this brew and I am not sure if I like it or not. For a nation better known for its wine, Italy is starting to be known for some of the best beers near the equater. From one who has been there: Viva Napoli for what you can do.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is sweet with caramel and malt. Pours amber with a rich beige head. Taste is very sweet and malty, though the palate is thin and drinkable. Overall a pretty nice beer, would recommend it if you haven’t tried it.

Bottle and label design looked so imposing I left it on the mantlepiece for six months until it went past its sell-by date. 3 months overdate, and the beer was as impressive as the packaging. Bronze,dark gold colour, packed with flavours. I couldn’t place the flavour but now seeing in the description, I can pick out the word ’castagne’ which explains a lot. An impeccable wealth of balanced flavours and aromas, I can only think this is a highly skilled brewer. The highlight of my week, and it’s been quite an entertaining week. Credit to Lorenzo for this one!
