Tap at Ma Che, Trastevere Roma - 03/10/12. Opaque murky amber/brown with a big frothy tan head. Good lacing ensues. Fruit tones on the nose, apple, prunes, rhubarb, a little toffee, bread and spice. Tastes of toffee fudge, dates, prunes, orange pith, cinammon and a touch of alcohol. Fullish bodied with fine carbonation leading to a smooth and sweet finish with a pinch of spice.

A loud pop when I popped the cap, which has a curious plastic cylinder thingy attached to it. Hazy copper coloured with plenty of sediment floating around. The smell is big on toasted malt with side notes of Belgian yeast and some conglomerate of spices. The taste is spicy, again, not easy to distinguish which, with toasted malt, Belgian yeast...maybe that spice is or at least reminds me of rye. No mention of rye in the beer’s description but that won’t stop me from mentioning it. This also has a dankness and earthiness to it. And the finish? I get light fruity tones that make it on the dry side. Okay, this beer really has me befuddled; I’m now getting hints of horse blanket as it warms up and you probably know what that would suggest. Overall, I’d say smell wins over taste. This is weird and I will just have to let the cards fall where they may. If you see bottles of it, give it a go.

ippopotamo36 (365) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 11, 2014
On tap at the King Arthur pub in Rome-Italy. Pours a great hazy amber/copper colour, off white head which leaves lacing and drafts. Nose: dry fruit, hint of caramel, fresh candy sugar. Mouth: medium carbonation, round sweetness, molasses. Very balanced and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ottima belgian strong ale, caratterizzata da un gusto ricco e intenso, note di nocciola, castagna, frutta scura e caramello. Il tutto sostenuto da un corpo di grande spessore.

Belgian strong ale abbastanza classica, adatta ad accompagnare cibi dal gusto deciso, sul finale si rivela un po’ più amara

Alla spina. Limpido color ambrato-ramato con soffice cappello di saponosa schiuma beige. Aroma delicatamente fruttato e leggermente acidulo con sentori vinosi di albicocca e toffee; gusto dolciastro con spiccate note di frutta passita e altre più deboli di zucchero caramellato. Corpo medio, abv ben mascherato, effervescenza gentile, struttura leggermente oleosa.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with some floating sediment and a light brow head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of bread with a bit some earthy fruits and a woody backing. Flavor has a good amount of sweet bread with a bit of earthiness and a bit of grass backing.
