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!

(White Pony The Oracle) Stubby bottle 330 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 10.7% Dark mahogany brown colour on the body, one finger of beige thick head on top. Good retention. Arom aof prunes, dates, more dark fruits, alcohol, light caramel, sugar, some chocolate notes too. The taste is sweet, again lots of prunes and dark fruits, chestnuts, alcohol is making its presence barely notable, caramel and toffee, less chocolate but traces still there. Medium body with good carbonation. Very good, nice 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.

SamTheBarrel (703) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2015
330ml brown bottle poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy dark copper colored with a medium sized khaki colored head. Aroma of apricots, pears and orange peels. Flavours of apricot and orange marmalade, caramel, raisins and a hint of chocolate. Taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter. Palate is full bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. The Oracle is tasty, pleasant flavour that is quite malty.

Scent of lighter dark fruits. The flavor is caramel and candy. Sweet and fruity beer. OK bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. Bitterness coming towards the end. Nothing I like. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Grassy earthy, malty, slightly yeasty, warming. Deep copper colour, small beige head. Cloying sweetness, lightly bitter, warming, bit one-dimensional. Medium body, average carbonation, sweet finish. Ok.

Lele (301) - Padova, ITALY - MAY 24, 2015
ASPETTO: marrone brandy scuro, limpido. Schiuma con sfumature marroncino dorate, non molto abbondante, fine e non particolarmente resistente. AROMA: liquoroso, caramello, maltato, fruttato e frutta sotto spirito. Aroma avvolgente e che invita alla bevuta. GUSTO: si ripropongono tutti i sentori percepiti al naso, e anche di più. Corpo strutturato, carbonizzazione giusta. CONCLUSIONE: una birra praticamente vicinissima alla perfezione, ha tutto quello che desidero quando mi accosto ad un bicchiere. Assolutamente consigliata!

330ml bottle (Tolly, Tartu)
Nice sweet malty aroma, touch of nuts. Deep red, fizzy head. Nice malty taste too, gently sweet, again a bit of woody nuttiness. Palate is worryingly carbonated, remarkably light to be honest. Very pleasant, but odd in its fizziness. Good malts. Did get a bit alcoholic towards the end.Decent.
