daje (4131) - NORWAY - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle from Bir&Fud Bottega, shared july 14th 2012. Hazy amber body, small light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, wood, raisins. Taste is sweet and fruity, chocolate, vanilla, blackberries, smoke, and a very winelike finish without going too far. A very different beer due to the winey notes, but a good one nonetheless

dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Pours dark black with a small white head nose is red grapes, wood, vanilla and hay. Taste is sweet. So sweet up front that you would think it is going to run away out of control but the balance improves throughout into and great flavor. Mouthfeel is smooth and amazingly creamy. Heavy body and a huge aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
