A clear copper coloured brew with a small but long lasting head of foam, great lacing.

It smells very grainy, a bit fruity, noticeable hop presence. More whiffs in and it gets strongly caramel malty.

Malty sweet, not so much grain, light fruitiness. Very smooth, near perfect mouth feel yet, a bit lacking somehow when I take the price tag into account. +$18 for a bottle.

First italian beer that I make a review!
Has a nice hazy dark amber color with a persistant cream foam.
Smell and taste resembles some fruit liquors and has some floral and other fruit touches.
Maltiness is stronger in the end.
The beer is quite balanced, the smell is strong but is not easy to feel the alcohol in the tongue.
Carbonation and body are at good level, not to high.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours from the bottle with a nearly opaque medium brown color that makes me think of mashed raisins for some reason. The aroma has some brown sugar notes, some yeast, and a little bit of mossy hops, all of which are very subdued. The flavor is more assertive, with raisins, some grassy bitterness, a little alcohol, and more brown sugar. The light-medium body and fine, active carbonation are ok, but it all leaves the beer feeling a bit thin. Overall, this beer is nicely fruity, but it lacks the complexity I wanted and comes across as a watered-down Belgian dubbel.

A 250ml bottle with a BB of May 2014. Acquired ages ago from the GBBF in 2012, and stored in my garage. The label doesn't explain much, but the beer is described as 'double malt' with flavour evolution.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A deep, hazy reddish-amber hue with chunky floating sediment and medium carbonation. Yields a small head of frothy white foam that lasts for a moment or so before collapsing to a thin surface layer. Aroma of sweet, fruity malt with hints of raisins, dried fruit, sherry, brown sugar, caramel/toffee, fruity yeast esters, subtle spice, oxidation and faint stewed leaves. A warming whiff of booze in the background.

Tastes of rich, fruity malt with a lingering finish. Notes of raisins, dried fruit, sherry, brown sugar, caramel/toffee, fruity yeast esters, oxidation, stewed leaves, faint roasted malt and a touch of earthiness. A hint of alcohol in the background. Quite sweet, followed by a mild yeasty character upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with light carbonation and good body. Yeast coats the palate. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of sweet malt, dried fruit and yeast esters.

This one is hard to judge, as it isn't easy to categorise and compare to similar beers. I also don't know how much it has 'evolved', but there is a degree of oxidation present. It looks a bit murky and lacklustre, while the aroma and flavour are pretty sweet and fruity. Plenty of yeast character and mild port notes. Body is OK. Drinkability improved as it warmed to room temperature. A so-so beer; nothing really wrong with it but hard to recommend. No need to hunt it down.
