3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared by Ryan, side by side with the Glazen Toren base beer. Pours murky tamarind. Aroma: Tons of red wine. Vinegar, brown sugar. Closer to a sour brown. Can’t tell if this is infected or intentionally sour, but either way this actually works surprisingly well. Extra heat, warmth; slick and oily. with medium-full body. There’s a chance I’ve chosen the wrong beer, but figured it was so winey it belonged here - if the mods see this and believe this to be in error, feel free to move it to the other BA entry.

Draft at Churchkey. Muddy amber brown color, tan edge head, not a pretty beer. Aroma of vinous port wine. Taste is an odd combination of vanilla, red wine and whiskey that clashed a bit. Overall effect is less than the original.

Mahogany colored pour with a small white head. Nose is intensely fruit forward with a strong prune character. Some raisin, grape, and dates, too. A fair amount of butter, unfortunately. A bit of cardboard, some water, a light tartness, and some wood. The flavor doesn’t show much of the barrel character. Some hints of wood, quite watery, and a lot of butter. Cardboard, a decent amount of dark fruit, light tartness, and some sweet caramel malt.
