33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is dark fruits, red wine, vanilla, oak, something tart, and chocolate. Flavour is much like the aroma – with a dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma av melkesjokolade, rødvin, eik og vanilje. Smaken er middels fyldig, med veldig mye kaffe i smaken, akkompagnert av mild sjokolademelk, rødvin, samt vag vanilje og eik. Lite hint av syre. Personlig synes jeg kroppen kunne vært noe kraftigere, men en god øl.

3rd July 2010
Opaque black beer, no real head. Light semi dry palate. Low carbonation. Tangy dark malt, not bitter or roasty, vague wood and red wine. It’s well joined up but quite subtle. Finishes light and semi dry and with more tangy malt and red wine.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33l bottle from from Ølbutikken. This one pours a dark dark brown - near black body with a small quickly sidesticking and bubbly chocolaty hear. It’s really really vinious on the aroma! Almost like nosing a Cabernet.. Also some strong chocolate tones here with subtle light sour-ish hints of wood and red berries. It has a well-oily texture and it’s softly carbonated. The taste is also really really vinious and somewhat oxidized with wood, tons of red berries, roasted malts and it’s quite light acidic (can I say that?). Really tasty and really different. I liked it, but I can understand that it might get a bit to much for some. 04.04.2012

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Almost no head, pitch dark. fantastic nose where the cabernet is so evident! Dark soft fat liquorice, red berries, meat, vanilla, Medium body (surprisingly!) and some length. a bit sour/oxidized tone, berries: Blueberries, Blackcurrant, Chockolate in the exit. A perfect beer for sipping and wondering about. Only problem is taht the 33 cl doesnt last so long as the beer is very tasy, mysterious, weird and you must try it again and again to explore the ever evolving taste. Damn good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cool looking bottle here and courtesy of nbutler11. It pours clear amber – brown with thin tan head. The aroma has bold molasses, toffee and then red wine fruity tartness mixing with sweet vanilla notes. I’m not used to red wine and vanilla coming together like this let alone red wine and sort of molasses and toffee. This is interesting stuff. The taste has nice smooth sweet red wine notes slipping and sliding into molasses, toffee and some dark roasted maltiness mingling with vanilla. Very interesting stuff starting from the nose right to the after taste.

Bottle shared by storminorman @ Woodshed 1.0! Crazy bottles brought to this event and this was one of them! Dark black pour with very simple khaki head that diminishes to nothingness. Aroma of oak, vanilla, cocoa, coffee, and cherry skin. Very vinous with the wine barrel showing, heavy tannins with the chocolate, raisin, and plum present. Dry.
