L_Lovecraft (744) - - DEC 10, 2016
Red fruits, sherry, hints of caramel, acetic notes, cloudy amber/reddish with a thin head, medium/full body, law carbonation, taste similar to the aroma with a pleasant sour final...intense sweet but for christmas is a good adjective.

Silvan7 (1279) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 5, 2016
"Reserva 2016" On tap @ Extraomnes bier e cibo. Giallo ambrato carico velato, schiuma bianco lattiginoso, fine persistente. Aroma intenso fine e complesso. Subito si avvertono note fruttate riconducibili al vino, uva appassita, legno ,quasi liquoroso. esteri del lievito belga, fruttati, pesca sciroppata, zucchero candito, leggerissima luppolatura. Dolce amabile, acidula, solo nel finale qualche sentore amaro, ma il calore alcolico lo "lava" immediatamente, speziata, Calda, poco carbonata, corpo medio, rotonda, "piena". Equilibrata ed armonica.

laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2015
33 cl bottle vintage 2011 @ home. Batch #214 11, BBE 08/2016
Aroma has ripe fruits, apricot and alcohol. Foamy palate. Flavour has burning & warming alcohol, ripe fruits, apricot and some yeasty tones. Finishes with some spicy tones and more alcohol. Very Belgian, reminds me of some Bush beers. Alcohol clearly pushes through here but luckily most of it is of warming type.

Vighals (4548) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2015
Reserva 2013. Brunt tåkete med fingerhøyt offwhite skum. Lukter fløtekaramell og blomster. Kompleks med både søtlig karamell og bær, samt noe syrlig bitter smak. God alkoholfylde. Kort.

AlchemikalGab (48) - Borgomanero (Novara), ITALY - JAN 20, 2015
33cl bottle from my cellar (1 year and 2 months approximately). Pours a clear, amber coloured liquid, with a thin, off-white head. I can smell candies, apple pie, vanilla, honey and even some funk. Taste is mostly fruity, sweet, and mellow, you can detect just a little warming sensation (it?s 12% ABV but it doesn?t feel like it at all) with a slightly tart finish. Body is impressively thin, carbonation is soft.

oliodnb (664) - ITALY - JAN 13, 2015
33cl bottle. Pours light hazy amber with two fingers of light beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, candied sugar, sweet fruits (raisins, dates), some nuts and some yeast along with a light alcoholic note. Taste is similar with less sweetness, lots of fruity notes, some acidity, some alcohol again, spices. Medium body, light carbonation, very good long lasting sweet finish with only minimal bitterness. Excellent.

ippopotamo36 (2628) - 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 dall’abv ed "ammorbidita" dai tre anni passati in cantina.

sebletitje (10494) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de Roy’s Beer, Milano. Reserva 2013, 12%, bottle #3912, BB 31/08/2018, lotto# 231/13. De couleur orangée-ambrée, col fin blanc cassé. Arôme est profond au niveau fruité fermenté, petit bouquet de barrique tirant sur le vin blanc. Rétro-nasal mielleux et complexe avec une petite touche surette. Palais rappelant une bière de DeDolle avec une influence très belge, les 12% ressortent fort bien, fruité fermenté rappelant l’abricot, miel et pointe de barrique. Le tout est un peu liquoreux, collant au lèvres sur des notes sucrées (brun?). A déguster à son aise, complexe et intéressante, très belge dans l’inspiration mais avec ce petit plus italien fort appréciable.
