Bottle kindly shared by John in Johnny’s Off Licence, Rome.
Complex fruitiness, bitter sweet. Grapes, spices, well balanced. The hops are not too evident, but they are doing the job creating a balance. Long lovely finish. JoeinDahlem (1560) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2009
From bottle at Vilvordia fest. Muddy dark brown color. Lightly sweetish nose like New Orleans pralines, brown sugar and nuts. A bit sweet, mildly bitter, well-rounded flavor with that nutty-caramel backdrop. Another dangerous one, tasty and drinkable. astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2009
