Kosmokrator (822) - ITALY - JAN 23, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2015 Color mogano leggermente nebuloso con un soffice velo di schiuma beige poco persistente. Aroma nocciolato, speziato e caramellato; gusto dolciastro con note di toffee, zucchero abbrustolito, lievito e un finale più amarognolo e debolmente luppolato. Corpo medio-lieve, abv poco percepibile, effervescenza vivace (anche troppo), discretamente bilanciata. Una buona birra invernale che necessiterebbe di un pizzico di intensità in più.

Dacrza (820) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2015
DATE TASTED: December 29, 2015... GLASSWARE: Chimay goblet...OCCASION: basking in the afterglow of The Force Awakens with a beer that has some force of its own... APPEARANCE: dark ruby brown body that reveals none of its contents... the thick, creamy brown head resembles the head of mousse, with thick bubbles wreathing the glass...a thick shade follows its crest... AROMA: ginger, anise, pepper, and vanilla roil in the citrus and pear... small hits of toasted malts work their way in--raisin and currants lastly ... PALATE: creamy, active at the throat, and long-lasting in its finish--one that coats and resounds... shockingly sippable and worth holding in the mouth, with a pleasant, almost softened cola consistency... TASTE: a light grape, vinous sauvignon , with mellow anise, malt, and dry hops that suggest orange and earthy roots...figs and dates, yes sir... slightly sour, with some fermentation making the experience a bit more complex... ...OVERALL: in a run of great strong beers--see Southern Tier’s 2xmas and Corsendonk’s Christmas Ale--Nice more than holds its own, it owns...as drinkable a weighty beer as one finds, with complexity and enjoyability coupling easily... had this a long time ago, then on a St Patty’s Day crawl in State College on tap--and the search was over at The Hop and Vine....one bottle, and one is feeling good...
