(12 oz can from Systembolaget; BBD: December 2013) Pours black with thick, creamy tan head. Decent retention and regeneration. Aroma is smooth roasted malt perhaps somewhat remniscient of a Lion stout (my only frame of reference when it comes to foreign stout). Fruity estery hints in there as well. Creamy texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a short, warming and slightly dry finish. There’s some dry bitterness in the finish too. Where there would normally be residual sweetness one finds instead something like a slightly acidic fruit juice. This gives the beer a slightly odd twist for a stout. Taste is estery and boozy with only hints of roasted malt. A bit odd.

Lite torr rök. Strävhet och viss sötma. Inget som imponerar. Krystad. Knappast elegant.

@Basunen: lite tunn doft av kaffe och rök. Smaken är något fylligare, aning besk och lite söta undertoner. Helt ok men inte imponerande. En hel del pommenans tycker jag även hitta. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Released april 2 in Sweden on Systembolaget. Nice looking can. Clear, brown, almoust black liquid with a brownbeige head that dissapears quickly with no trace. Strange, original smell! Fruity, hoppy, oak, grape, vanilla and wine... Taste of grapes an sweet malt, coffee an chocolate. I really can’t find the "stout" here - But it’s good! It´s easy to drink, refreshing and tasty - I find myself longing for more!

Pours very dark brown with a deep tan head that leaves pretty quickly. The aroma has a bit of oak, smooth toast, red grapes/wine, licorice, oak and mild vanilla. There is a nice melding to all of the aspects. Full smooth body with lots of gentle flowing carbonation. The flavor starts with a delightful blend of semi-sweet grapes and roasty malt. Then anise joins in well along with nice woody grainy oak. The finish has some roasty bitterness, grapes, char and traces of coffee. Really well done. I’m liking this series a lot thus far.

Westmeister (2051) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Can. Poured a black/brown with tan head. Aroma was roasty, subdued coffee and cocoa and slight vinious notes. Taste was bold roasted malts, minor cocoa, with finishing swirls of dark fruits and tannic/viniousness. Not bad but finished quite thin for me.

Pours black with tan head. Aroma is mostly heavy dark malt and fruit...tastes similar and finishes almost like a red wine. Pretty differenent and good.
