leghorn99 (100) - Livorno, ITALY - JUN 7, 2015
Birra dal classico colore tonaca di frate; ha un bellissimo cappello di schiuma, cremoso. compatto e dalla buona perstenza. L’aroma è allo stesso tempo fruttato e luppolato, molto “stuzzicante”, sicuramente piccante; è ricco e importante, con una note finale di malto corposo. Ha un palato ugualmente deciso, di frutta secca, malto, cioccolato e spezie; ha un corpo agile e ben strutturato, con un gusto secco e luppolato, che la giusta frizzantezza fa apprezzare al meglio. Termina con personalità, dimostrando di essere capace di un retrogusto delicato di luppolo, malto tostato e frutta (banana e uva passa).

330 ml bottle. Pours a beautiful, hazy, reddish brown with a huge, creamy, long lasting, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of dried fruit, ripe banana and caramel malt. Sweet flavour of dark fruit, caramel malt, a hint of chocolate with some sourness and a mildly dry, bitter finish. Medium body with a smooth, creamy texture and soft carbonation. A complex, yet easy drinking beer. Excellent.

Pours dark amber brown with compact tan head that reduces to skim. Nose is sweet malt, yeast, walnuts, pecans, caramelizing sugar. Palate adds muscat grapes, candied fruit, bitters, cough syrup, alcohol buzz. Bitterness provides initially rough finish. It mellows with aeration but still brings some alcohol heat. Good, but not as refined as some other.

DraftDodger (415) - - MAY 28, 2015
Copenhagen 28/5 2015. 33 cl bottle from Gunnar Madsen Vinhandel. Pours clear dark brown with big beige head. Head subsides to thin lacing after a couple of minutes. Aroma is of dark malts, yeast, plum and alcohol. Medium carbonation. Taste is tinged with alcohol and bitterness. Some subdued sweetness for balance. A bit of burnt cardboard in the aftertaste. Fine dark Belgian fella with more rough edges than many of its industrial cousins.
