Ales are traditional, highly fermented and very distinctive. This Strong Ale with a deep amber-red colour is produced only with first choice malts which give it a characteristic sweet taste. Rich in creamy froth it leaves a pleasant aftertaste of hops. It is a typical strong beer and can be best enjoyed with strong and sharp flavoured food.

Ha un sapore dolce, accompagnato da sentori di liquirizia, frutta secca e caffé. Corposa, di colore ambrato carico.

maekchu (3044) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle from local Yamaya store. Lightly spicy nose, dark fruit and caramel, and some fumes. Very dark copper/amber color, light tan head. Malty initial, slightly herbal, a bit vinous and plummy.... but not all that pleasant. Medium-heavy body. A lot of alcohol in a very moderate flavor and body. Seems like a doppelbock.

Pours a clear amber color, topped with a relatively small off-white head. Malty aroma, caramel is easily picked up as is some alcohol presence. Taste is sweet and malty, again some caramel and alcohol with some medium bitterness in teh finish. Full and silky, but not exactly what I prefer.

Bue à la pression. Bière mal équilibrée. Très maltée, alcool trop présent, arômes de whisky. Pas terrible.

Silvan7 (967) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 27, 2014
On tap @ Haus Garden Gallarate. Ramata carica, riflessi rubino e ruggine. Schiuma beige abbastanza fine non molto persistente. Aroma di caramello, frutti rossi (ribes), vaniglia e zenzero. Poco tostato. Gusto abboccato, poco amaro, decisamente acidulo. Si ritrova tostatura ed un sottofondo di frutti rossi. Caramello nel retrolfattivo. Rotonda, piena, calda. Equilibrata ed abbastanza armonica. Forse un filo troppo acida.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 330ml bottle served in a Duvel tulip glass. A: Pours a dark but clear dark amber color forming a medium to small, creamy and thin bubbled beige head. Low retention with a very thin layer that remains forever on the top forming spotty, lingering and molasses lacings in the 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 [ BA Review @ 10/30/2013 ]
