muzzlehatch (4772) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2016
330 ml bottle from Steveís Liquor and More (Junction Road) in Madison, WI, sampled at cellar temp in a St. Ambroise glass. Big fizz when I popped he cap, and it pours a huge gout of swiss-cheese tan head that decays quickly above the tawny dark translucent body...nose is mostly red wine, raisins, a hint of dark chocolate, a bit too sharp, even vinegary, though as it warms it softens and a bit of sweet caramel appears...the wine character is not nearly as pronounced in the body, though itís still there, souring slightly and thinning significantly a decent roasted malty body...little in the way of apparent hops, this is a sweet & sour, roasty & vinous Impy rather than a bitter one, and while thatís a nice change from the usual American version I donít get a whole lot of Belgian yeast character either, and the body is ultimately a bit dull and lifeless. Itís drinkable but not something Iíll spend whatever I spent on it for again.

Bottle 330ml.

[ As Dead Mans Hand (Wine BA) ].
Clear dark black color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, wine - red wine, moderate roasted, moderate chocolate, wood, dark fruit. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light acidic with a long duration, tart, red wine, roasted, wood, warm alcohol. IMO not very balanced. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. [20160422]
