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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Pours black with a creamy, brown head. The aroma holds white house paint, penicillin, sweet grapes, fish, mint, hard roast, dark bread, some dark fruits, liquorices, earth, tobacco and light resinous woodsy hops. Hints of over ripe yellow fruits and blueberries. The flavour is medium sweet, medium bitter and light acidic with notes of strange/light sourish barrel aging, fairly balanced roast, liquorice and dark fruits alongside a yummy hop profile. The mouthfeel is round, light sticky and light tiny tart with a light carbonation. Sourish wine, dark bread and sweet liquorice on the finish. Medium bodied.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Theis! Pours near black with a thin grayish brown head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of roast and bitter chocolate with just a hint of red wine. Flavor begins a touch thin but grows with bitter chocolate and roasted malts with just a bit of wine in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Pours nearly black with a small, creamy, khaki head. The nose is a luxuriant swirl of dark fruits, dried plum and warm, gooey fudge. Full- bodied with pillow-soft carbonation. There’s a lightly acidic undercurrent flowing through the predominantly vinous, dark-fruit, charred flavor. Lightly bitter, tangy, cocoa finish. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pitch black pour with a small light cocoa head which lasts the duration. Nose is damn appealing. Loads of char, cocoa, milk, berries and spice. To be specific, it smells exactly like dark Lindt chocolate with blueberries through it. Fantastic. Taste is front up with spices and raspberries, chocolate comes through mid palate and rounds it out to the finish very nicely. Finishes very milk chocolate like and almost creamy. Full mouth feel with a bit of spritz to it which makes drinking this so easy. Perfect. Amazing beer
