3.3/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Handed to me a translucent, dark mahogany-hued body with a short-lived, off-white head.

Smell: Strongly sweet wafts of sugar followed by notes of dehydrated dark fruits (sans raisins), dried herbs, spices, toasty malts, and Italian-bred booze.

Taste: Light pale maltiness combined with some fully bready, toasty malts and a strong taste of dark candi sugar. Fruity flavors of dates and figs. Subtle spice qualities of coriander, cinnamon, and orange peel. Light earthy, spicy hops and bitterness. Fairly warm, semi-sweet finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Rather low carbonation.

Drinkability: The 25 Dodici had quite a Christmastime quality about it. Sadly, with the rather noticeable alcohol and low carbonation it came across as hot and flat. Not a winner with me.

Serving type: on-tap

3.84/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

A: The beer is relatively clear dark red in color and has some brownish hues along with a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sourness and oak are present in the nose along with hints of vanilla.
T: Much like the smell, the taste has a lot of flavors of toasted oak and vanilla along with a light amount of sourness. I didn't really get much in the way of malts.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit tart on the palate with a low amount of carbonation. No warming is perceptible.
O: The sourness and tartness seemed to make this beer resemble a Flanders Red Ale a little more than it did a Winter Warmer. In any event, this beer hides its alcohol remarkably well and is therefore very easy to drink considering its strength.

3.69/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

On-tap 12/5/2013 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep reddish brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains caramelized malts, dark fruit, a touch of spice and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel, fruit and some spice. Then a hearty malt character comes in. The hops presence is mild but brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, strong kick, not too filling, decent representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
