330ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip glass.

S: Sweet and booze. Strong notes of toffee, caramel malts and dark fruits. Strong bubblegum sensation in the nose. Some notes of candy sugar, nuts and brown bread too
T: Follows the nose: Sweet and fruity upfront. Strong notes of toffee, caramel malts, roasted malts, dark fruits, dry fruits (raisins and plums), brown sugar, nuts and sweet bread. Some notes of bubblegum and alcohol in the taste too. Warming
M: Heavy and molasses body. Medium to low carbonation. Sweet, malty and fruity aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Well done Italian beer

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aivan turhan alkoholinen. Selvästi keskimääräistä heikompi voimakas ale. Ei jää tästä jälkipolville kerrottavaa.
