Nel complesso non è male, ma alla lunga può davvero stancare. Comunque va bene per una serata in compagnia...

mikkopen (1025) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 20, 2008
500 ml bottle. Colour dark reddish brown with a thin head. Aroma is rather sweet, with raisins and plumes. The taste is sweet and fruity, caramel-like. Leaves a nice warm feeling in the mouth after swallowing. Some more hoppy bitterness would have been nice, to balance the sweetness, but, all in all, a very tasty and enjoyable ale.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2009
Draught. Bitter & Twisted Beer Festival. Pours a really nice golden brown with a slightly reddish tint. Small tan head that fell away pretty quickly. Really nice caramel and toffee aromas. Some nut and toasted aromas also. Flavours are quite malty with plenty of toffee. Dome bitterness on the finiish but nicely balance. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Nice beer.

ianwelby (1019) - SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2015
Clear, dark red beer with a filmy head. Smell s of earthy malt but not much else. Taste is malty too but with rich fruit and some caramel there too. Really nice and hearty.

Taste: Medium sweetness, low/medium bitterness and low sourness. Palate: Thick smooth texture, light/medium body, average carbonation, lingering dry, dried fruit, caramel, sweet but slightly bitter finish with subtle alcohol warmth. Comments: Very good. This rating is for the 7.4% ABV bottled version.

Martin243 (1000) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2011
500ml bottle from B&M. Fruity-Toffee aroma from a beautiful ruby red beer. White head which quickly disappeared. Sweet heavy, and sticky caramel toffee syrupy flavours. Little carbonation, which would liven this beer up. Alcohol dominant. Not bad, but a little too sweet, a little too flat, and a little too sticky to be really good. Wouldn’t want to drink more than one (at a time.)

ciocanelu (996) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 24, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 500 ml bottle, poured into a pint. Color is black-reddish. Large head that stays a while and leaves a thin layer. Aroma is roasted malt and booze. Taste is also dominated by roasted flavors and also a hint of liquorice . Not as boozy as the aroma suggested. Body feels medium and is well carbonated. Overall this is an interesting beer. Very drinkable at it’s 7.4 ABV.

Dark with not much head. Sweet malts with forest fruit flavours. Smooth mouth feel, remarkably drinkable for its strength.
