3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gusher of a bottle, mahogany brown, tan head, great retention, nice lacing. Big wood on the nose, grape skins, slightly acidic. Dark chocolate, some spiciness, more oak, lemon peel. Great flavors, but doesn’t really come together. Fantastic mouthfeel though

750ml, caged and corked bottle. Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Woody, vinous, caramel, funky, berries, and cherries. Tart finish and this one grew on me the more I drank it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a deep dark amber-tinged brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma of dry red wine notes, some tart berries, wood tannins, and some prominent fruity notes from the berries. Flavour is very dry and woody, with medium tartness, cranberries, wood, cola and a little vanilla. Very dry and woody body, with moderate fruitiness and tartness. Medium complexity and drinkability. Good stuff.

Very rich chocolate covered balsamic vinegar. Muddled a bit in flavor profile but still nice and oaky with a lot going on. Interesting but I would not buy again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
NOTF 2010. Deep brown pour. A little bit of soft funk and some light earthiness as well. Cocoa and an unusual sort of coconut flavour. Soft and a little bit funky. Nice toasty malt base. A bit of light fruit as well. Interesting brew.
