Matteos Ciao @ Craft Islington. Thanks to Matteo. Hazy deep reddish - amber beer, good pale tan head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Fluffy mellow dark malts, very soft, Mild dark chocolate. Very mild fruity bourbon. Pinch of spice. Floral and estery finish. For an 11% BA Quad this tastes somewhat wishy washy. Its okay as a beer in its own right but ultimately disappointing.

Bottle at Matteos farewell tasting, thanks to the main man himself. It pours hazy deep ruby - red with a thick, light tan head. The aroma is rich, sweet, earthy, wood, loads of dried fruits, cranberry, dried raspberry, jam, victoria sponge and light vanilla. The taste is big, rich, toasty, boosty alcohol, jammy raspberry, cranachan, dried berry, wood, leather, resin, spice, candy sugar and toffee with a very warming finish. Full body and high, foamy carbonation. Rather fruity stuff, but a bit harsh and hot also. Good fun nonetheless.

February 2017 - Bottle share at CBC Islington for the Matteo Farewell tasting as Struise Sint Amatus 2013 - Cask Strength Woodford Reserve BA. Big thanks to MDS for this big beer. Pours dark brown with an orange hue, foamy brown head leaves full lacing. Aroma is browned apple, cola, woody, lots of browned apple for me, apple pie. Body is light, very spritzy carbonation, frothy. Thin fizzy body. Taste has more of that browned apple, syrupy sugars, spicy and boozy into the finish. Ill give it the benefit of the doubt because this tastes washed out by carbonation but maybe Im being overly kind. (3.4)

Taste is also sweet and boozy, more caramel and raisins. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nice enough

Bottle shared in London - cheers fellas! Pours mostly clear reddish brown with a creamy, tan head. The nose holds nicely rounded ripe berries, toffee, wood, raisins. Medium to heavy sweet flavour with nips of alcohol, leathery berries, vanilla, more dried berries, hints of coffee ice cream. Full bodied, lightly chewy, with fine carbonation. Warm to hot finish, more vanilla, figs and dates, more berries, toffee, bread. Good stuff.

Fijn aroma met veel alcohol, hout en gedroogde vijg. De smaak is in eerste instantie vrij robuust. Hout, veel alcohol, rozijnen, gedroogde vijg en brood. In de smaak komt wat zuur (of is dit door koolzuur?). De afdronk is complex en vol. Mooi!

Pyszne. Suszone owoce, wanilia, Bourbon, karmel. Mega, wciąga podstawowe piwo na zupełnie nowe poziomy.

W aromacie karmel, rodzynki, nuty chlebowe i drewniane. W smaku słodkie, całkiem przyjemne, czuć beczkę.
