COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La 10 e lode si ispira alle birre scure prodotte dai frati trappisti in Belgio; esprime una grande forza, ma al tempo stesso anche grande equilibrio. Sono utilizzati 6 diversi tipi di malto d’orzo dai quali derivano tutte le note olfattive ed aromatiche (cacao, cioccolato, liquirizia, caffè).

hawthorne00 (2252) - Melbourne, - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown with a modest but fine beige head that laces well. Aroma of leather, prunes, raisins, figs, licorice, chocolate. Rich, sweet and boozy with dried fruit, dark caramel, only a little chocolate, licorice/ anise. Dries out a little at the end, more than enough to avoid being cloying. Slightly syrupy with enough carbonation to lighten it. Good.

Vinx (49) - ITALY - SEP 16, 2013
Inspired by the WestvleterenXII, as the producer himself says, the "10 e lode" is a wonderful 10% alc. belgian ale. Dark brown color, this beer inebriates with its strong and complex aromas that remind mature fruit and liquorice above all. Very very smooth at palate, it tastes full-bodied and malty with a fabulous balance between sweet and acid. Excellent. Surely in my top 10.

Mortlach (955) - Rome, ITALY - APR 6, 2013
06/0472013 Bir&Fud (tap). Bruna, molto scura, intensa, quasi impenetrabile, schiuma bianca leggera e non molto persistente. Al naso sentori di lieviti, caramello, frutta rossa e zucchero di canna, ottima. In bocca è dolciastra, con note di cioccolata e liquirizia, finale amaro di buona intensità. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione leggera. Magnifica belgian strong ale!

davidm (1926) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle from Swords. Nice malty strong ale. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, and wine; hints of grain and liquorice. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Dark brown, with a frothy head.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2013
Pours very dark brown with a small head. Nose shows burnt figs, rich caramelised bready malt, brown sugar, toasty melanoidin malt. Very rich. Equally rich flavours, with toasty and bready melanoidin malt, golden syrup and some burnt, almost roasty, dark sugary fruit. Also some subtle booze. Nice creamy carbonation works perfectly.
