Bière brune de 7.5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat citronné au versement, légèrement sucré. Elle possède un beau col au versement. Elle est sucrée et épaisse en bouche, comme du beurre. Elle a également comme un goût de « toffee ». En finale, on goûte un léger arrière-goût amer, mais très minime. Petit aspect de torréfaction également. Elle est riche et excellente ! onceblind (9706) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Aged. Not sure how long. Date on the label says "best by 5/12/16" so it must be somewhat old (drinking on 7/16/16). Hazy burnt amber hue with a fast fading head. Lovely nose of something like blueberries and currant mixed with a little oak and Belgian Amber malts, a touch of booze, candi sugar and some kind of herbal spice. Delightful and smooth flavor that’s full of Belgian Amber malt depth and booziness but also a bit of currant and oak barrel, and English toffee. Really lovely. MarcoGori (10) - ITALY - NOV 13, 2014
La classica birra definita "doppio malto", rossa e alcolica, caramellata e dolce omhper (25160) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2009
Bottled at Enoteca Decanter, Milano. Cloudy reddish brown, vreamy head. Complex aroma of hazelnuts, plums and perfume. Mid sweet with above medium body. Lightly toffeish with notes of lingonerries. Seemless and pleasant, with well put together flavours. Mild and flavourful, interesting and quite lovely! MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2009

I’m drinking this outside of the Barbican by the fountains in the wind and faint rain. Glorious. Mario pulled this out of his bag on arrival. A most unexpected treat! Red-ish brown colour with a thin beige head. Great bottle too, typically excellent Italian presentation. Very nutty and fruity on the nose. A faint honey sweetness and some dry wooden notes too. Good start. The flavour is even better. All of the above and then some. Perfectly pitched yeast, plenty of bret and wood and a glorious lick of sweet fruit that balances gloriously well with the sourness. Strong malty base sits really well alongside the faint honey and spice. Somewhat of a pleasure on the palate too. A very well made brew, stunning balance and just a pleasure to drink. Cheers Mario!
Je ne m’attendais pas à ça! Une ambré fruité avec une touche de caramel, giroffle et anis. Très très crémeuse malgré le léger pétillant. Je ne sais pas si ça se prend en mangeant puisque le goût est délicat. Difficile à trouver MrGGen (334) - ITALY - NOV 4, 2010

Poured from bottle. Caramel and malt aroma. Solid mahogany. Caramel brown sugar, banana, vanilla and spice flavors. Similar to Belgian beers I’ve tried. Good finish. Well done - surprisingly good for an italian beer. Japalo (1887) - DENMARK - JUL 17, 2012

osteria Lucca. Stable blended with dry hops american !! Grapefruit. Dryness in great balance. Light body with smooth medium finish.
Bottle, best before 31/05/12. Aroma strangely seemed variable, with some sweet maltiness and spices and other things. Texture seemed thinner when the beer was cold although it is indeed a little thin. No head and maybe a little flat but it’s not a major problem. Taste is most complex, with notes of caramel (subtle; we’re really not dealing with an over-sweetened beer, here), wood, some sourness, coriander, cinnamon, dried fruits. Alchool is perceptible and reminds, with other flavors, of a dry white wine. A dry finish let the herbal hoppiness express itself in the long and refined aftertaste. I don’t need any hair dryer. Seems more like 8.5 or 9% abv to me... Very good beer; almost a different discovery at each sip...
