4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.
