3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mahogany brown colour. Thick, syrupy texture. Has a warming spiciness and a background flavour of red wine or port. Carbonation is a bit rough but leaves a nice sweet stickiness on the lips.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very unique beer. Pours a red brown color, with no head. Smells like wine, or port. Taste is very wine like, very sweet, and a little alcohol taste. Ends nice.
