Hazy amber beer with small off white foam. Aroma is warm, sweet and oaky, very barley wine like too. Taste is smooth, slight wine like with hints of caramel, honey and some hints of pepper and sweet rum. Quite a tastefull and complex beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Hazy orange/brown, faint head. Rich oaky vinous nose. Sweet and full bodied. Vinous caramelly malt provides a rock solid foundation for the peppery red berries and oaky wine character to dance upon. A full flavoured, intense beer that stays elegant and complex despite it’s weight. Drier finish with peppery warmth.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml, expensive as_, bottle. Poured a medium to deeper and cloudy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of wood, grapes, cherries, oak, vinous, and slightly funky. My 6.5 year old wanted to smell it and without prompting told me it smelled like grapes. Tastes of cherries, oaky/woodiness, vanilla, caramel, and some fruitiness. Alcohol content well hidden with a nice smooth and easy to drink body.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. At first the taste reminds me of an english barley wine, lots of fruits, vegtables and sweet alcohol. The yeast belgian thing appears quite late. This beer has i qualities but i would have hoped for a longer taste with more complexity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish amber with a dense head. Cherry, wood and grapes in the aroma, with very vineous flavours, wood, tart and basement. Highly interesting to begin with - but it gets a bit too much in the long run.
