Birra del Carrobiolo O.G. 1111 4.7
Bevuta versione liscia anno 2014. Colore bruno, carbonazione assente. Sentori si caramello, torrefatto ma soprattutto frutta secca (prugna, datteri, ciliege sotto spirito). Corpo pieno. L’alcol travolge sul finale creando un bel effetto riscaldante. Birra complessissima. Spettacolare.

Birra del Carrobiolo Coffee-Brett Imperial Stout 3.9
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas & Max. 11%. Black with a tan head. Great deep aroma, heavily roasted, with bitter chocolate, coffee, strong smokiness, a bit of dark fruits, and a light alcohol hint. Sweet-sourish flavor with chocolate, coffee, roast, smoke, dark fruits, a bit of bitterness, and a very light alcoholic note. Full-bodied, rounded. Great stuff. Very rich, alcohol is well-concealed.

Scopey
Birra del Carrobiolo O.G. 1111 3.1
Bottle from deep in Kernel’s rotbox, consumed at Kenny’s 20K tasting. It pours clear deep red - brown with a small off-white head. The nose is bitter - sweet, earthy, musty, smoked malts, wood, damp leaves and brown sugar. The taste is bitter - sweet, woody, earth, leather, smoke, burnt toffee, sugary, dried fruits, toasted malt, tangy Dandelion & Burdock and a touch of liquorice. Medium - full body, fine carbonation and chewy mouth-feel. A bit sweet and sugary overall, which detracts from the overall experience. A bit messy overall. So-so.

Bottiglia @ Simei 2015, Milano. Il gusto al naso rimanda al caffè. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è considerevole. Il cappello è di schiuma timida e non persistente. Il colore è marrone. Il corpo è rotondo. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono lunghe. Il finale è felpato, complesso e amarognolo. Il retrogusto è persistente. L’aroma è di caramello, torbato, malto da whisky, tamarindo, china, miele di castagno.

GBBF Day 4. Keg. Light haze on this amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and has modest fine carbonation. Dry ginger, floral ginger, fruity ginger! That will be ginger then! Not much heat though. A little bitterness in the dry crisp finish. Not bad.

500ml bottle - shared by Mark!
Nice chocolatey aroma. Rich full palate. Very nice level of smokiness. Sweet body, a bit heavy, but the taste itself doesn’t say 13%, it’s not boozy. Slightly unsophisticated, but has enough tempting elements that you kinda forgive its. A bit lumbering and hefty after a while. Smoke is the winner here, that’s what keeps you interested.
