fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2010
Aged in Zinfandel barrels; bottled Feb 2009, 1½ years ago
The color is almost coffee black; medium sized, beige head. The aroma is quite complex, with roasted malts, red wine, cream, Bretts, lightly fruity; finally chocolate. The body has a good strength, and the mouthfeel is quite round; there is a strong chocolate flavor, with roasted and burnt malts; as in other beers (Alvinne for example), the heavily roasted malts don’t marry well the sourness and the vinous touch, the result lacks of harmony; the final shows some drier roasted malts. Confusing, not convincing.

Opaque black beer. Lovely nose of woody red wine and sourness. Light semi crisp palate. Light fruity sourness with a hint of red wine. A little sweet lacto malt in the background. Finishes lightly sour and a little dry. Lovely light sour beer. Very drinkable. One of the best of this style!

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2011
Bottle, 12oz. A clear, ruby colored beer with a lasting, dense, light tan head. Brett, chocolate, cherry-pits, oak and alcohol in the aroma. The flavor is pretty much the same, slightly roasted, with chocolate, cherry-pits, oak and a warming touch of alcohol. Full body. Bretty finish where the roasted, chocolatey malts are left in the far back. Definitely a nice one, want more of this! 100917
