Bottle shared thanks to kermis. Black with bubbly tan head. Whisky up front, light herbs and spices, dark chocolate, marzipan, red wine. Quite some whisky and herbs here, but nice roasted stout notes underneath. Medium sweet with light sourness and roasted bitter finish. Almost full bodied with soft carbonation and light alcohol presence.

AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Tap - @ RHP. Pours brown cola with scarlet highlights. No real head. Nose of grapes. Grapes! Taste is all whiskey, hints of grapes (!), red berries, slight chocolate. Lots of whiskey and fruit. Expectations breed disappointing results, but there is really no oak, no vanilla, and no real depth. Interesting and different. Finishes as you'd expect, thin and boozy. Waiting for the warmth to kick in... Still boozy. Still grapey.
