3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Batch 267 BB 2022)
Effectively a 2012 vintage. Very IS in appearance with a dark brown hue and orange thin head. Chocolate and oatmeal on the nose; good complexity. Palate is thick and yes wine-like with a port thickness that is exaggerated but very low fizz levels. Dark fruits early but this lightens somewhat to finish with a much lighter tangy note. Note for the faint hearted and I’m sure could be cellared for at least a couple of years.

30th January 2012
Opaque black beer, tidy tan head. Light dry palate. Mild dark malts. Bretty paint from the barrel. A little unsweet dark chocolate. Dark malt. Nice red wine before the dry finish but there is a little too much barrel weirdness here for this to be great.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml corked bottle.
Black, near opaque with a creamy thick espresso head. Fair lacing and some ABV streams.
Nose is rich on red wine, licorice, coffee, soy, roasted malt, oak, dark fruit and a little smoke.
Medium bodied, hardly any carbonation, finishes sharp, dry and bitter with a warming ABV sensation.
Flavor is fruity vinous, tar, soy, licorice, dark chocolate, espresso, roasted malt, wood, raisins, plums. Almost too complex as all the nuances hits you up front and are hard to distinguish - then fades out.
Although an explosion of flavors dominated by the red wine barrel it is well rounded, soft and appealing. Very nice.
