ansalon (2117) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2015
Pours a deep clear amber with a medium large foamy tan colored head. Head retention is quite good, does not dissipate too quickly. Lots of marinated fruit and berries in the aroma: dates, ripe apple, peach, slight ripe banana along with rasins, prunes and molasses. Also hints of cherries and almonds. Taste follows suit with that same marinated fruit thing going on along with nuts, molasses, and some deep umami notes as well. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky and oily with moderate carbonation. Quite well balanced.

I’ve started to discover a lot of great craftbeer from Italian microbreweries lately. I had the opportunity to try a few at my visit to Rome last november. A great city by the way!

This time I’ve got my hands on a beer from a microbrewery located in northeast Italy. Haven’t tried anything from them yet.

The beer is brewed at ’t Gaverhopke in Belgium.

The beer pours hazy, mahogny colored with a two finger beige head that leaves lacing on the glass.

Nose: Sweet caramel malt, dried fruit, hjoney, plum, chocolate and alcohol.
Taste: Orange, sweet plums, fudge, milk chocolate, vanilla, molasses, dark fruit, chestnut, sugar and almond paste.
Body: Medium to full body with soft carbonation. A light bitterness. Sweet, oily, creamy texture.

I’m a succer for sweet beers with high ABV and this is no exception.
Really good sipper!

Flaska @ Bishops Arms GA, Malmö. Klar bärnstensfärgad öl med ett litet smutsvitt skum. Dofter av malt, torkad frukt, läder och alkohol. Detsamma återkommer i smaken. Känns ganska tunn för att vara ett Barley Wine av denna styrka.
