Ragnampiza (349) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUL 16, 2014
330 ml bottle. Dark sunrise orange/light amber, pretty clear, with a huge, fluffy and persistent slightly off white head. On the nose warm bread, some christmas pudding like notes, candied oranges, a hint of leather and some light alchool in the far background. Slightly bitter upfront, but as expected it become extremely sweet, almost cloying. Fruity, slightly spicy and boozy, lots of toffee/burnt caramel presence.The alchool could have been better hidden. Average to lively carbonation, medium body, oily texture. So so.

JonnyConga (70) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2014
Pours clear dark copper. Aroma of malt and dark fruit. Tastes dark fruit, biscuit, malt and alcohol. Smooth bitter finish but a bit of a phenolic after taste. A decent Belgian. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

brianza_ale (81) - ITALY - JUN 30, 2014
Quite big and thick off-white head with good duration, colour is dark brown ruby almost clear. Smells very malty, sweet, dried fruits and sugar. Taste is all malt, caramel, raisins, spices adn syrup. Quite good clean palate, despite the very high sweetness, mimal bitterness at the end. Average carbonation, almost no hop presence at all. Really a bit much too sweet..

sulphursouls (21) - SWITZERLAND - APR 28, 2014
This strong dark ale had a gorgeous colour, medium head and the aroma of a rye yeast dough, with some candy sugar and caramel. The flavour also included a slight roast, overall very creamy and pleasant.
