2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap @Open Baladin (Rome). Ramata intensa, scura, con riflessi rossicci, schiuma assente. Al naso alcol, solvente, vaniglia, frutta rossa sotto spirito. In bocca è molto spigolosa, etilica, vinosa, dolce, poco equilibrata, manca di identità e spessore. Corpo pieno, carbonazione soft. Pessima.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours clear amber with almost no head. Riserva of 2010, opened in 2017. Huge scent of cherries poured out of the bottle. Overwhelming, but pleasant. Aroma is clear cherries, porto tones, dark chocolate, ripe dark fruits, plums, caramel toffees... Oof... Incredible and divine nose. Tastewise almost undescribably tasty. It is smoothly sweet with clear tones of cherries, chocolate, oak wood, raisins, and red wine. Perfectly balanced and with a tremendous complexity. Full bodied, thick and slightly oily mouthfeel, flat carbonation. True sipper, drink it with care and enjoy. A true gem and a God-like brew if you ask me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Open Baladin in Rome-Italy, with Mortlach and daniele. Tobacco leaf color quite dark, no foam. Nose: alcohol, sweet notes (extra sweet) of molasses mixed with alcohol. Not very nice imho. Mouth: tart, woody notes, a chili nice finish.
