Bottled. Hazy coppery brown colour with a rubyish tone to it. Mediumsized creamy beige head that leaves some lace. Aroma is toffee, leather, some wood and mild winelike notes. Flavour is very similar in a good pleasant and richly bodied way. Tasty. A bit tart in the finish.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
33cl bottle from Grand Cru, Rimini. It pours a hazy copper red color with a large beige head. Aroma is winey and acidic with some vinegar notes, grapes skin, wood and vanilla. Taste is sweet-acidic with more vanilla, oak, red wine character and complexity with forest berries and blsamic vinegar. Silky mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Closer to a flemish red than a scotch ale, but less heavy on the vinegar notes and with higher complexity. Great brew.

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2013
Bouteille 33cl, BB 11/2017, lot# L034 12. Couleur acajou, col blanc cassé se rapprochant d’un léger café au lait. Arôme offre de suite ce bouquet distinct de boisé et barrique. Le tout est accompagné par des effluves de vin et autres fruits noirs simplement divins. Le tout est suivi par une fine rondeur de sucre caramélisé. Palais offre un mélange entre barrique de vin sur une aigreur modérée. Pétillance modérée. Tout cela se retrouve mélangé à un profil malté caramel, accompagné de qcq notes chocolatées, qui allie le côté vin rouge; prune et raisin. Saveur est alors un subtile alliage entre aigreur fruitée-boisée et note douce-sucrée. Franchement une très belle découverte, au delà d’une étiquette de qualité, une bière qui surprend par sa complexité et son raffinement.

JorisPPattyn (7907) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2013
Small dark cream head over reddish brown-amber beer. (Red)fruity, woody, lactic acid - typical oud bruin nose with fruit. Old wine casks, vinous. Fruity, but with very severe woody tannines. Dry, with even dry-out effect. Chocolate in the finish; chocolate-covered dark cherries. Rather well-bodied, despite the low ABV and high acid content. Smooth, but dry-severe. Good one! The winebarrel aging really did the world for this beer. Tasted with Kingele Dark Chocolate cherries - a match made in heaven!

33cl. Bottle. Pours hazy amber, brown with tan head. Aroma sour, wine like, sweets, malts, wood, caramel. Taste sweet, nice wine like sourbitter finish. Mouthfeel thin, dry. Good beer!

MikeKeller (848) - Kemi, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Draught (most likely) @ Osteria Della Birra, Bergamo (Citta Alta), Italy. Originally tasted 14.6.2011. Found the rating from my old ZTE mobile phone. Hazy orangeish looks. Aroma and flavour sweet caramel malts. Body light/medium. A bit too watery.
