On tap at Open Baladin Roma. Very malty, fruit, wood raisins and figs. Delicious. Alengrin (5369) - BELGIUM - AUG 12, 2014
Artisanal ale from Genua, seemingly inspired by Belgian Scotch ales but also tending towards imperial stout. Very thin, quickly dissolving and eventually all but disappearing, beige head, colour a very dark brown, bordering on black. Complex aroma of raisins, coffee, sweet paprika, dark chocolate, dried plums, pear syrup, dry sherry, peat. Dried and candied fruits in the mouth, vinous and oily, very agreeable mouthfeel, sherry-like accents but the coffee and chocolate qualities coming from deep, dark and roasted malts are dominant. Some subjective woodiness in the finish, long and bitter due to the roastedness, but also surprisingly thin in view of its impressive strength. Complex and refined nonetheless.

Scura, schiuma nocciola poco persistente.
Complessa e delicata, l’alcol si sente relativamente poco.
Davvero notevole. Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 26, 2012

lupulonimbus (21) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle, 33 cl. Light-muddy brown, with some white detritus, small head. Strong aroma, winey (indeed), overripe fruits (apple, plum, pear, among other notes), brandy. Medium sweet debut, slightly acetic, ripe apple-peal bitter. full body, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish. Malt at its best at impersonating fruits. Impressive. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2012

Cloudy brown beer. Rich creamy malt, soft palate. The malt tastes aged, soft and creamy. Very light touches of milk chocolate and marmite. Finishes soft and with more of the same.
Questa birra potrebbe tranquillamente essere scambiata per una strong bruin belga, tanto è aderente allo stile e realizzata in modo impeccabile.
