Dried fruit, malt and leather in the aroma. A hint of alcohol is noticeable, but its pretty well integrated. Nice taste, perfect beer.

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.

Vinx (124) - ITALY - JAN 30, 2017
Reserva 2012. Aroma of yellow fruit, red fruit, wood, citrus, lactic, caramel in the background and further something nutty. As the beer gets warmer some spicy aromas come out: cumin, pepper, cloves. Ruby red color, very little foam. Its sweetness is properly balanced by a medium body and by the citric and lactic freshness from the maturation in wine barrel (i dont know which wine) that somehow gives balsamic notes. Velvety, soft carbonation, a little astringent finish. The Reserva 2012 is one of the best italian beers Ive ever tasted, its a masterpiece of balance between the malt mildness and its slightly sour character. Chapeau!

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2017 Birra ambrata chiara tendente all?arancio. Al naso note fruttate, frutta candita frutta sotto spirito e leggera speziatura.In bocca idem, dolce, frutta sotto spirito, malto, biscotto. Nonostante i suoi 10.8 l?alcool scalda solo a fine bevuta.

mkel07 (5679) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2013
330ml bottle (2012) from Archive Beer Boutique. Layers of colour make this beer visually appealing. The modest foam clings to edge of the glass. Aromas of plums, peaches and nectarines fill the nose. In the mouth the beer is full, smooth and silky with a texture. This is a very good beer.

Silvan7 (1230) - 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.
