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.

KyotoLefty (9040) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 12, 2016
33 cl bottle from Tanakaya. 9.1%. Vinous nose, chestnuts, chocolate, caramel, honey, apricots/plums, and grapes. Very complex, with the Belgian yeast pulling it together nicely. Lovely, shiny reddish brown with a full, rocky head. Richly malty and very fruity. Not overly sweet, dry, with a very bitter finish. Raisins, chestnuts, plums, light orange. Excellent stuff. Very rich and yet very fruity and not cloying at all. Up there with the best Belgian-made beers of this strength. Full, smooth body.

Shared bottle. Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of fruit, malt, yeast, and spice. Taste is dark sweet fruit, caramel, yeast, malt, and spice. Interesting.

Silvan7 (1060) - Samarate, ITALY - FEB 2, 2016
On tap @ Barbaresco Legnano. Ambrata carica, riflessi ruggine, schiuma beige fine mediamente persistente. Aroma intenso, fruttato, di castagna,, uvetta, frutta candita, leggermente erbaceo e di miele. Gusto abboccato, quasi amabile all’ingresso, con note fruttate di uvetta, datteri e una leggera speziatura. Finale erbaceo/mellifluo. equilibrata, quasi nessun corpo, non molto carbonata, abbastanza calda. Armonica.

kerenmk (4014) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at tomer’s place. Murky honey-brown with white film. Honeydew, yeast, a little spicy, perfume-like aroma, sweet and yeasty taste with some honey. Medium-to-full body, some plastic and soft fizz.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks kerenmk. Hazy orange amber color. Smell of candy, yeast and fruity esters. Sweet sugary flavors of honey, candy and alcohol. Medium-bodied, sticky, quite hard to drink.

tomer (2850) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 31, 2015
At a tasting, small bubbly head, cloudy rusty orange to very light brown color, honey and wax aroma with some candy in the back, flavor of manure and a strange spiciness with some dried fruits in the back as the beers warms up, very sweet and alcoholic. Over the top, almost undrinkable.

750ml in Peja, Kosovo. So great, Alberto! Rosy bright red, thick soapy foam. Great bright aroma. Finishes darker caramel than expected. Some alcohol richness. Some smokiness to malts too. Dry finish. Really lovely.
