4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Bottle. #01979. It pours a clear-looking dark ruby-brown body and a finger-thick beige head. Red wine, dates, alcohol, some caramel, dark berries, hints of dark grapes, and some chocolate and vanilla hints. It’s super soft on the palate, silky, with alcohol warmth. Quite sweet and full-bodied. Lots of red wine in the flavor, with berries, some grapes and a pleasant sweetness. Some caramel, vanilla and chocolate. Lasting finish, vinous yet sweet, and with some bitterness hints. Wonderful. 130211

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium beige head. Hazy deep dark brown body. Earthy vinous
wild berry aroma with chocolatey funky notes. Sweet earthy
vinuous chemical taste with wild berry and fruit notes. Full
body. Hot, slightly sharp mouthfeel. Sweetish earthy roasty
candy aftertaste with toffee and fruit notes. Wildly unusual,
unlike anything I’ve ever tasted. Interesting, and fun to try,
but not really that good. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, web

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 250 ml bottle @ Patricks. Dark brown body with a moderate sized, dense beige head. Strong, complex and lovely aroma of dark berries, red wine, dark malt, chocolate and vanilla. Flavor is much the same as aroma, rich on dark malt, chocolate, berries, vinous, oak, vanilla, dry fruit and warming alcohol. Full body and massive aftertaste. Really complex, surprising and super smooth beer. Fantastic!

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pure magic! Thick, brown head that tastes both acidic and bitter - lovely! Aroma of both tropical fruits and darker berries and fruits. (Raisins?) Oily and winy (from barrels...?) texture. The balance between bitterness and sourness is perfect, and the warmer this beer gets, the more the dark and bitter take over. Tastes of licorice too, but in general the taste is pleasantly refreshing with hints of sweetness. The perfectly bitter aftertaste lasts "forever".

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (25cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Dark mahogany colour. Inch-thick soft beige head that quite quickly reduces to a permanent thick film with nice flame-shaped lacing. Complex and inviting fruity/acidic/malty aroma with sweet, concentrated marmalade, aged vinegar, oak, red wine. Full body, lively/soft carbonation. Semi-sweet taste, wonderfully balanced by a vinegary acidity and mild bitterness. Long medium dry sherry-like aftertaste. A very impressive brew.
