4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bel colore rossastro con schiuma soffice mediamente persistente. Profumata e avvolgente, di gusto rotondo e vinoso. Frutta matura, lamponi, liquore, malto, lievito e caramello, ottimo bouquet. Un po’ pastosa e dolciastra sul finale ma è corroborante e soddisfacente!

big thick malty nose. Fairly sweet, but a bit simple without much depth. Ok lingering red wine character in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (backlog). Murky brown colour, small off-white head. Aroma is berries, alcohol, sweet malts, some fruity and nutty notes as well. Flavour is sweet alcohol along with some berries, toffee, mild yeast and some fruity notes as well. Quite boozy, but otherwise the elements are quite right.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown, almost looking like a stout. Aroma reveals somewhat sweet and sticky nature of the beer, definitely great for desserts. Taste is sweet, has some dark fruits, soaked in liquor. Overall, definitely a top notch beer, just being overshadowed a bit by some others I had during this evening.

At a tasting, thanks, small bubbly head, very cloudy brown, color, not too nice, aroma of dried figs and clove with alcohol other spices and coke coming through later, flavor is a melange of dried fuits and caramel. Good but not too exciting.
