Another one of these lovely small and sexy bottles. No head. Clear very dark red brown body. Vinious malty caramel cocoa aroma and flavor swith a suitable amount of hops bitterness although the beer is relatively sweet. Alcohol well hidden. Low carbonation. Long sweet finishy.
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. Kleurplaatje (208) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2017
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. Iznogud (3805) - CROATIA - DEC 14, 2016
On tap at Beertemple, Amsterdam. Pours amberish brown with small off-white head. Malty, caramel, dried fruit, some wooden notes, plums, raisins. Quite sweet, sticky, warming. Not that easy to drink. Medium to full bodied. Korcz (3390) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 24, 2016
Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Suszone figi i rodzynki, podlane słodkim winem. Mniam. ippopotamo36 (2383) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 1, 2016
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.

Cherry, red wine and quad. Oak, no carbonation, sweet and acidic. Very interesting beer. slowrunner77 (12044) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 21, 2016
bottle shared. Very sherry like all around. Deep caramel malts with some vanilla and fruit, fairly sweet and a little alcoholic. Nice sipper.
