3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark mahogany with a medium white head. Aroma is full of wine barrels, oxidation and wood. Flavour is about the same, with the wine barrels upfront, oak and oxidation,. Something seems slightly off here due to the oxidation, but it’s certainly still quite nice.

37,5 cl bottle @ home, BBE 06.12.2017
Aroma is sweet with caramel, some harsh malt and raspberries. Flavour has strong woody notes, some harsh malt, caramel and sherry. Alcohol is present but does not disturb much. Quite easy-going. Wouldn’t call this a "very complex beer".

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Burnt sugar, drool inducing, a strange dryness, soya, tons of mollasses. This is epic. Barrel aging is noticable, is that what Malaga taste like....... what is Malaga??? Saltiness, sweetness. A awsome alcohol flavour is permiating this brew. Dam I want more!!!! Distracted so not that good of a review.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is sour wine character, some light spiciness, and caramel. Some pale wood aswell. Taste is light sweet caramel with some wine yeast character. Pleasant dark fruit flavors here aswell. Light alcohol warmth but pretty smooth altogether. Appearance is a fairly clear amber with a medium thin head that retains fairly well.
