Pours black with pale brown dissipating head. The aroma is full of port wine, plum, grape, brandy and faint chocolate notes. Flavour is also thick with port wine, but then the stout comes through with a robust warm palate. Quite sweet and sour.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
375 ML bottle
Brownish black pour and settled black with hints of ruby at the head. Thin layer of dark mocha colored head. Wants to be a thick collar really. Some streaky and spotty lacing and a bit of ABV legs showing.
One messed up nose. Really medicinal. Old band aids, oak, smoke, sweet and charred red wine, stewed licoroce, cough syrup, and maybe some poor, hapless oatmeal and roast malt.
Taste is as odd as the nose. Soured red wine, medicinal and herbal taste. Cheap tasting barrel and wine. Some char and ash coated in grapa?
Smooths out some in the feel but still a lot of cheap red wine. Nice dry wine finish though. Is there any body to this or is it just bad red wine.
Odd BA beer that I will not revisit. Just way overbearing
