Tons of dark fruits, quite vinous, tannic, oak adds some subtley. A nice one in this series.

Rune (11052) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2015
Poured from a bottle, 12.9 % abv, at Haandbryggeriet Beer Festival 2015. Shared with Finn. Cloudy dark reddish body. Tiny head, spotty lacing. Sweet and dried fruity nose. Likewise, the taste profile is made up by rather sweet, dried fruits, hints of dough beneath. Vinous impression. Balanced by a little fruity tartness to the ending. Still too sweet. Boozy. Okay in smaller amounts (Drammen 30.05.2015).

Meilby (10934) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2013
Draught @ Haand Ølfestival 2013
Pours slightly hazy brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, dried fruits, oak, alcohol, and brown sugar. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter with a long sweet, oak and fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat.

adnielsen (10475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle @ home, thanks to Lukaduke for sending! Pours a deep orangish red appearance with a lasting, foamy, dark brown head. Really complex nose. Cinnamon, plums, prunes, red grapes, apples, dark chocolate, and caramel in the the nose. The spicy cinnamon booze in the nose comes off like a mild form of Goldschläger. Medium body. There is some note of the booze but it’s not too strong. Kind of tastes like a tannic red wine that has some additional brown sugar and toffee. A fair amount of dark fruits as well as leather. The carbonation is a little dull. Some light oxidation. A little bit of residual sugar in the mouth after the finish. Damn, this is fine beer.

pivnizub (10094) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle: Murky brown, small off-white head, solid sweet fruity (plums) and molassy nose with a tinge of alcohol; sweet flavour with a discredt bitterness, full bodied, what else; sweet plummy finish, malt and molasses, too plus a tinge of alcohol. The perfect light thirst-quencher…

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Sampled this at Campground Brewdown 2. Pours a hazed brown with a thin white head. Soft caramel, toffee, light acid. Tangy and oxidized, malt, soft caramel. Tart, long chewy caramel into the finish.

JorisPPattyn (9389) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 7, 2012
Short-lived cream-pink coloured head over deep brown beer with a foxy sheen. Very fruity nose, part cherry, part sugared preserved cherries, roses-flowery. Quite vinous in character, as sweet dessert wine, if a red one. Still sweet, but with a bitterish woody streak. Fruity, with a little sourish edge, which brings it to a superb balance. Again red wine like, if way less sweet than suggested by the nose; Retronasal something like old carpets, but much nicer than that sounds. Very slick, medium to well-bodied, serious alcoholwarming. Aftertaste has again a sweet cherry & roseflavour. Great balance. Arguably the most complex beer Alvinne ever succeeded.

KyotoLefty (9124) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle shared by tderoeck. Pretty dark brown with red and thick lace. Winey nose, dreid fruit, oak, vanilla, chocolate, spices (nutmeg), mulled wine, apples. Sweet and fruity, jammy, with chocolate, some leather, grape, apple, wine. Super original and very complex.
