On tap at CBC, London. It pours a very dark brown almost black colour with a one finger beige head. Aroma is a perfect mix of brett, red wine and dark fruits. Band-aid and port characteristics. Taste is same mix of notes with little bitterness, figs, brett and port wine. Brett and red wine flavours tend to dominate. Mouthfeel is silky with good carbonation. Overall, fantastic beer with lots of complexity and balance.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. An almost opaque black beer, with an average sized, frothy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting, light brown head. The aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, caramel, hint of chocolate/coffee), moderately yeasty (barnyard, horse), with notes of red wine/Brunello, cherries, apple, wood/oak, berries, hint of alcohol. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, average/lively carbonation, semi-dry long finish with moderate bitterness, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Interesting experiment, with a lot of red wine and almost not stouty at all, almost undefinable style. Suggested.
