Tommaso (20) - ITALY - MAY 3, 2011
Alla spina, di colore tonaca di frate, schiuma compatta di grana fine color cappuccino persistente!. profumi di malti tostati e frutta secca assieme a un bel resinoso da luppolo molto rinfrescante, in bocca subito i malti ben bilanciati da un amaro piacevole con un finale lungo. Hey che birra! molto secca e bevibile!

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 21, 2011
Ma che spettacolo questa Due Mondi! Queste sono forse le birre pi adatte a Croce di Malto, contrariamente alla triplexxx troppo dolce qui riescono ad esprimersi alla perfezione in uno stile che esalta il malto a pi non posso. Grandi!

Lubiere (13525) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2011
A dark reddish brown ale with a thin moka head. In aroma, herbaceous Brett malt with wild herbs, and light licorice notes. In mouth, a complex sweet nutty malt with smooth Brett, horseblanket, superb and complex. Bottle at Mondial 2011, June 9 2011.

In short: A superb fruity, vinous and highly drinkable no-style brown beer. I loved it
How: From a bottle at Mondial de la Bire 2011
The look: Cloudy brown body topped by a long-lasting small beige head
In long: Nose has lots of red wine barrels, sweet semi-toasted malts, a barnyard character that is almost wild. Taste is very fruity (red fruits, bananas and more), fruit cake, lucious caramel, red wine barrels. A mild astringent woody dryness. This beer really tasted like it was aged in red wine barrels but there is no indication to this effect. Im not sure. If not aged in red wine barrels, this is certainly the best simulation Ive seen of wine barrel aging ever. Anyway, despite its barrel/vinous character this was actually a highly drinkable beer, a rarity for that type of beer. This was probably my beer of the festival at Mondial 2011, too bad it is as rare as someone calling sick on a Wednesday.

IvanParenti (14) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2017
A (very) unusual but great doppelbock, very drinkable. Aroma has more coffee and roasted than expected, with some hops (resin) and just a bit of alcohol when the beer is warmer. Dark brown, white a medium/small tan head. Good balance between malts and hops on taste and aftertaste.

Ambro206 (362) - ITALY - JUL 26, 2014
La birra si presenta scura e con una schiuma compatta. Al naso aromi di cioccolato fondente. In bocca ottimo bilanciamento tra labbondante maltazione e la luppolatura. Birra corposa ma non si avverte la prepotenza in bocca dellalcool. Ottima. Equilibrata. Soddisfacente.

Cipressaia (53) - ITALY - SEP 13, 2011
Forse la miglior birra del birrificio croce di malto, ancor pi della arcinota triplexx. Definirla doppelbock forse riduttivo, questa una birra di complessit superiore.
