4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Semmilyen habja nincs. Fekete, mint az éjszaka. Illatában fekete csokoládé és vörösbor aromája keveredik. Íze édeskés, feketecsokis, vörösboros, keserűje marginális. Meglepő, milyen jól elrejtették az alkoholtartalmát. Utóíze rövid és a korty folytatódik benne. Isteni desszertsör, nagyon finom.

Bottle at Erzbierschof Zurich. Beautiful brown color. A warm flat almost port-like strong ale with lots of prunes and barrel taste. Boozy and warm, perfect for a winter night at a snowy cottage with a cackling open fire.

375 ml bottle shared with the group via b3shine. Pours a dark cola brown color with a few random bubbles. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, a nice vinous character, this comes off more as a digestif, low carbonation works ok here, thick mouthfeel, a sipper for sure.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Pours a dark brown color, with minimal head. Wonderful aroma of dark chocolate, raisins, nice wine, oak, nuts, sherry. Pretty pleasant. Medium to bigger body. Minimal carbonation. Mild slick, leading to a mild dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, though more dry on the end. Mild bitterness, and a pleasant light alcohol warmth pushing the vinous flavors in the aftertaste. A little carbonation wouldn’t have hurt, but otherwise, this is pretty tasty one to sip a small bit of. Seems like it aged alright.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. 2202/9987. Bottled: 20/06/12.
Pours dark brown and watery. No head at all. Cant even muster one up. Nose is toffee, a slight whisky, Soy sauce. In the mouth it’s slick, a gives initial melted toffee flavours, like biting into a liquier. It’s surprisingly subtle. There’s a little saltiness, some sweetness and caramel qualities. You CAN pick out some of that red wine and oak from the beer. Vanilla. A slight whisky. This is incredible. Not even sure this counts as "beer" any more.
