minutemat (2397) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2015
330ml bottle thanks to JefVerstraete. Pours black with large tan head. Sweetish malt & vegetal aroma. Fairly fizzy, some berry fruit, liquorice and roasted malt but nothing seems to gel with some odd off-flavours coming through. Really struggled to finish this.

Clearly wine cask from the aroma. Does not drink 10%. All the same, a well balanced beers. Iím quite pissed. Really, this is good though, subtle. I wish I hadnít shared the other half of the bottle with someone.

hopdog (9713) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2015
On tap at TJís. Poured a black color with a smaller sized off white head. Woody, roast, some vanilla, and some dark fruits. Lighter sourness that worked.

330ml bottle (HBF2015, Helsinki)
Harsh acidic sour aroma. Some cherry. Ditto taste. Some roast, some more harshness and burntness. Yay, charcoal and vinegar.

Koeno89 (1) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2015 does not count
Pikzwart met een espresso kraag. Aroma van wijn en zoethout, in de mond subtiel zoet. Wanneer hij even door de mond gewalst wordt komt de gebrande mout wat naar voren maar blijft het zuurtje van de wijnvaten de boventoon houden. In de afdronk blijft vooral zoethout achter

zacgillbanks (3097) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. An inky black beer that pours with no head. It has a sweet liquorice and white wine flavour an oily mouthfeel followed by oak, vanilla and more tart wine and sherry flavours on the warming extremely dry finish. Nice!

Hermod (4049) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2015
33cl bottle from Firmabier, if I remember correctly. 26/09/2016. Pours pitch black with an one finger thick espresso head. Wine barrel noticeable straight away, but not intruding. Licoricy, roasted malty, slight sourness. Flavor has sour wood, licorice, roasted malt, slight tartness. No sign of the alcohol. Sweeter finish, but the wine/barrel notes makes it feel more sour than sweet. Nice sipper. Quite fond of the wine notes actually.

ElDesmadre (2218) - Mikołůw, POLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle from JefVerstraete, thanks! That one gets extra points for its fluffy, rock-solid head. Slightly overcarbonated, as expected, which albeit goes well with the strong vinous character of this beer. Notes of red wine and wood dominate initially, complemented by a light spicy phenolic touch. As the beer warms, its stout character comes to the fore, with chocolate wafers, raisins, caramel. Its light tartness is balanced by a full body and malty notes of dark chocolate and caramel. Medium strong, chocolatey bitterness. Very vinous imperial stout, but I liked it all the more because of that.

yespr (34874) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2015
From tap. Pours hazy dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma is toffee caramelish and light breadish. Sweet, roasted, light liqourice and roasted dark malty. Bitter and dry. Slight herbal finish.

Ambro206 (272) - ITALY - MAY 8, 2015
Assaggio da 100ml allo Zythos Beer Festival 2015: Stout dal colore nero impenetrabile. Aromi di prugna, uva e cioccolato al latte. In bocca Ť moderatamente dolce punteggiata di amaro. Finale lunghissimo e corpo pieno. Una birra onesta!
