leghorn99 (64) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 31, 2015
Arriva nel bicchiere di color tonaca di frate, opaco; la testa di schiuma è compatta, di colore beige, cremosa e molto persistente. Al naso toffee, frutti rossi, ciliegia, zucchero candito, liquirizia, con sentori più leggeri di uvetta e di prugna. Il gusto porta invece sugli scudi la liquirizia, indiscussa protagonista, affiancata da note di biscotto e pane nero, toffee, uvetta e zucchero. La marcata dolcezza viene contrastata da una leggera acidità (accenno di caffè) e da una leggerissima nota amaricante terrosa, breve pausa prima di un retrogusto dolce dove ritornano uvetta e prugna assieme ad un timido tepore etilico, unica avvisaglia di un alcool (10%) altrimenti celato in maniera assolutamente straordinaria. Birra molto dolce ma mai stucchevole, dal corpo medio e con la giusta dose di bollicine.

Drank a 2012 bottle with Rik while watching The Hobbit 1 26-01-2015. I really liked the first impression of the beer. It kinda grabs you. Has a compelling taste. A strong, typical winter beer taste. Malt, wood, sweetness, some carbonation. Nice. The aftertaste is a bit fading. Liked this beer.

barbillon (54) - Pesaro, ITALY - JAN 11, 2015
Etichetta 2012. Bella birra! Al naso salgono subito frutti rossi e zucchero candito...nel finale anche uvetta. In bocca invece vi è subito un sapore di liquirizia che invade tutta la bocca..con un finale caffettoso. Poi guardi la graduazione e vedi 10 gradi....subito l’assaggi di nuovo perché non ci credi. Vuoi cercare quel grado alcolico ben nascosto...per poi accorgerti che è già finita. Piccola perla da tenere in cantina! Ottima bevuta.

presario (4756) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
Rich brown foam on dark reddish brown beer. Very dark but seems to be some particulate. Foam hugs the glass as you drink. Big dark Dubbel chocolate nose. Tastes like a big Dubbel. Yummy. Roast and chocolate. Perhaps some nuts an d spice.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2673) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2014
10% On tap at Luppolo 12 at the end of the night, an opaque muddy brown with a minimal head and a boozy sweet malt nose. The taste was the same but too be honest by this point my taste buds were probably shot. Middle of the road Belgian Christmas beer.
