Beautiful big fluffy head that lasted the entire time I enjoyed this brew! Lots of nice fruit that ranged from raisins to lip puckering grapefruit. you can taste the alcohol but it does not dominate. Very well balanced indeed! Had this before the Paleo races in Asti, Italy thanks to a very cool Italian winemaker od Cantine S’ Agata...thanks Franco!
Bottle - 750ml. Pours a brown hazy body with copper glints and a huge, beige foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with yeasty, fruity, and butterscotch hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries brown sugar, yeasty, and plummy notes. Ends with a decent, moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Enjoyable but still overpriced. mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2017 New SKU at the SAQ. Pours a good amber with a medium white rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of belgian sugar. Taste is quite sweet but not cloying with some alcohol. Some dark fruits. A bit metallic. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is a bit syrupy. Drying/hot alcohol. Not that enjoyable to me but not really problematic. Just OK.

Birra decisamente dolce, ambra scuro, aroma di caramello, che prevale netto al palato, note di dar fruits. Viscosa con alcol in bella evidenza. Rune (13494) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2016
750ml bottle, vintage 2009, shared with friends at Pressklubben in Stockholm. Clear mahogany coloured body with a dark reddish shade. Spotty lacing from a low, beige head. Dried fruity aroma alongside hints of dough and caramel. Taste like a fruit cake with moments of raisin, prunes, caramel and bread. Prolonged finish. Warming, well bodied and smooth in the mouth. Fine partner to our chocolate mousse (24.11.2016).

Ambrata e schiumosa, al naso offre caramello, zucchero, luppolo, lievito (tanto lievito!), miele amaro e frutta matura. Al palato non tradisce le aspettative, corposa, strutturata, discretamente persistente. Finale pasticciato ma niente male. pils70 (133) - - OCT 2, 2015
Alla spina. Rosso rubino con una schiuma beige quasi inesistente. Al naso frutti rossi molto presenti anche al palato. Prugne, amarene, frutta candita.
Alcol molto evidente. anders37 (26987) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2015
