3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 500 ml. Poured cloudy burnt copper with a large, off-white, rocky head which was mostly lasting. A woody aroma with notes of white pepper, toffee malts, nuts, caramelized dried mixed fruits, dried apricots and hints of spiced cookies. Flavor was a light earthy hop bitterness with toffee malts, all spice, pepper, overripe peaches & apricots, caramel, wood and a spicy/warming finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, an almost chewy mouthfeel and a good length finish.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Probably one of the most damn good beer that i’ve been drinking. The aroma is soft, normal, not so good. I feel a bit of vanilla and a little’ yeast, but not’ so good as the beer really is. That’s a great beer. Con un aspetto marroncino, quasi color noce, color bourbon, ed una schiuma beige bella fine ma non persistente. In bocca la birra da il meglio. Ha il sapore che dovrebbe avere una birra. Amara, astringente, bella frizzante con una carbonatazione superiore alla media ma non asfissiante. Un corpo rotondo, quasi dolce, ma comunque visibile. Alcool nascosto che ermerge poco poco. Sapore di resina, pigna, lievemente pane e retrogusto lungo che regala fragole e vaniglia. La bocca, dopo averla bevuta, rimane veramente soddisfatto. Dopo aver bevuto tante birre, posso dire che per ora questa è quella che mi piace maggiormente forse, sicuramente nella grande élite. veramente una birra da gustare, che si lascia bere e che non appesantisce.

Pours copper/amber with a huge, beige head.
Slightly skunky, caramel malt aroma.
Ovveripe apple (peel), toffee, nut flavor.
Rich, earthy bitter.
Not bad, but a little too light-struck from the clear bottle.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
No hops, not even some grassy notes. Just pale, caramely malts. Some bread notes, cereals, and some deep caramel notes. Solid body, and mouthfeel. Finish is medium bitter, and a tad roasty, with some nuts. Its a nice beer, but a touch of hops would have been nice.
