4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
No head, pitch black colour with a dark red shine. Mokka-vanilla aroma. You can tate the wood and the bordeaux aftertaste. Smoked taste with a kick at the end due to the higher alcohol percentage. The beer looks somewhat flat due to the fact that there is no head at all but the taste and aroma of the beer cover this very well.

Another perfect hel and verdoemenis. Don’t know if it’s the name, but I do taste some of the bordeaux wine barrel. Started the Borefts Beer Festival with this one, and it was the best of the day.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
24th September 2010. Borefts Beer Festival.
Opaque black beer - residual suddy white head. Dry semi crisp palate. Rich minerally dark chocolate and a little coffee. The Bordeaux is quite subtle but is there in the undertone supporting the beer very well. Gets sweeter and creamier before a dry finish. Very well joined up.
