Vignale (2198) - Malmö, - NOV 12, 2012
En riktigt kraftig IS. Väldigt aromatisk, massor av mörka bär, mest svart vinbär, en bouquet som ett bärigt, rökigt och kraftigt rött vin. Kropppen är massiv, kärv, men ändå len. Massor av syrlig mörk choklad, fruktig espresso och kraftigt portvin.

Bottle at De Molen. Dark brown with almost no head. Full syrupy body with low carbanation. Quite sweet with some nice bitter tones. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, caramel, raisin, wood, some vinous tones, herbs and spices. A nice full flavoured brew.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Nip bottle, dated 9/21/10. Poured black with a short dusting of tan head. The aroma picked up lots of burnt coffee malts, red vinous notes, and oak, with quite a bit of oxidation evident.. came across just a touch stale. The flavor found similar.. burnt black malts, coffee, and ashy malts at the core with oxidation, vinous notes, and peppery alcohol laced throughout.. finished with more tart vinous notes, burnt coffee, and peppery notes. Heavier-bodied, but without sufficient carbonation.. felt like flat cola at times.. spiciness and boozage were sufficient.

Habanero (2753) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 7, 2014
Bottled. Pours deep brown nearly black with a tiny white head. Aroma of slightly roasted malts, caramel, wood and chocolate. Sweet flavor that ends up with bitter notes. Medium to full bodied, oily text. and soft carb. An excellent impy.

18 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a tiny head that quickly disappears leaving no lacing. Aroma and flavour are roasted malt, liquorice, chocolate, coffee, minerals, and a little red wine - with a dry finish.

Sample at Hel en Verdoemenis tasting
Black clear headless beer. Lots of wood from the barrels. Dry. Some alcohol in there giving it a sharp edge.

daknole (9443) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Thanks to Boltz7555! Pours a black with no real head. Mostly flat. But it’s ok in this beer. Chocolate, roast, sweet grapey notes, light woody tones. Smooth and easy.

Dark brown, low carbonation. Very complex beer. Vinous aroma with notes of hops, liquorice, dark fruit, wine and some coffee. Good beer!
