ippopotamo36 (2013) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 13, 2014
On tap at the Birre Sotto l'Albero festival in Rome-ITALY (Macche and Bir&Fud). Pours deep golden going amber with a compact white head. Complex nose: spices, aroma of incense. Mouth mirrors the nose with the addiction of some caramel. Great one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - NOV 24, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2015 Color ramato-arancio leggermente nebuloso con un velo poco persistente di fragile schiuma bianca. Avvolgenti sentori vinosi e dolciastri di frutta fresca, zucchero candito e marmellata; gusto dolce, rotondo, fruttato, caramellato e debolmente agrumato. Corpo pieno, struttura oleosa e vellutata al palato, effervescenza gentile. Sontuosa ale invernale irrobustita dallabv ed "ammorbidita" dai tre anni passati in cantina.

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de Roys Beer, Milano. Reserva 2013, 12%, bottle #3912, BB 31/08/2018, lotto# 231/13. De couleur orange-ambre, col fin blanc cass. Arme est profond au niveau fruit ferment, petit bouquet de barrique tirant sur le vin blanc. Rtro-nasal mielleux et complexe avec une petite touche surette. Palais rappelant une bire de DeDolle avec une influence trs belge, les 12% ressortent fort bien, fruit ferment rappelant labricot, miel et pointe de barrique. Le tout est un peu liquoreux, collant au lvres sur des notes sucres (brun?). A dguster son aise, complexe et intressante, trs belge dans linspiration mais avec ce petit plus italien fort apprciable.

Davros (2949) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2014
Pours hazy amber with very little in the way of head. Nose shows funky notes suggesting at acidity, a bit of sweet confectionery and some caramel and booze. Similar flavours, slight acidity, lots of confectionery-like sweetness and a fair bit of booze. Some candied fruit. Carbonation seems very low.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - MAR 12, 2014
330 ml bottle from ArtigianBeer, served in a snifter glass. 2013 vintage, bottle n 278. Deep sunrise orange, almost amber, with an average off-white head which dissipated leaving a nice and persistent thick ring of foam. Intense aroma, quite herbal/medicinal with notes of toffee, strawberry jam, sour black cherry, and diapers. Unused diapers, fortunately! Just a hint of booze, but nothing resembling the actual ABV. Quite complex in the mouth, revealing different layers of flavours each time. Definitely plums, dark fruits under spirits and baked apples. Alchoolic finish, with a pleasent warm down the throath, quite sweet and honey-like. Average carbonation, medium body and oily texture. A fantastic sipper.

rosenbergh (11042) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2013
330 ml bottle. Vintage 2012. Lotto 212 12. BB 07/2017. From Italy. Courtesy of brandman.
Hazy brown colour with a tiny tan head. The aroma is very weak... surprisingly weak for a 10% barley wine... very sweet. The flavour is also super sweet with some alcohol and mild... nothing... Very sweet and not much more.
