3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours dark brown, almost black color with a small beige head. Roasted malts and surprisingly lot of wine notes here, some chocolate and dark ripe fruits. Roasted malty flavor with dark chocolate, vinous notes, plums, molasses and some faint yeast. Sour palate, dry and bite malty finish. Sweet, alcohol itís well hidden. Good and quite unique.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of red wine, tart fruit, red grapes, oak, light roasted malts, light coffee, some chocolate notes. Flavour is moderate sweet, moderate tart, with a light to moderate bitter finish. Starts out like red wine but the aftertaste is where the Imperial Stout shows up. Interesting take on the style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg
Very dark brown with a lacing lasting brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and wine. Taste is medium bitter but with a vinous sweetness that doesnít work for me. aftertaste is more alike to an imperial stout with lasting roasted malts. Not the best imperial stout for me due to the wine influence but Iím curious to find out if the bourbon aged versions are more to my liking because the basis is solid.
