Pours a black colour with a small white head. Aroma is strong with red wine notes, oak and dark chocolate. Flavour is very rich and big with roasted malts, red wine, tangy citrus, oak, cherries, dark chocolate, berries and tannine. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, vinous, quite complex finish. For a stout this is quite unique.

Keg at Fanø Meet the Brewer, King William IV. It pours very dark brown, with a thin off-white head. The nose is sticky dark fruit (cherry, plum, blackcurrant and such like), roasted malt, some tanginess, coffee and dark chocolate. The taste is tangy dark fruit; plum, raisin, grape, cherry, port/vinous, light sourness, roasted malt, coffee, charcoal, touch of balsamic vinegar and salted liquorice, with some alcohol warmth in the finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Good balance, interesting and pretty damn flavoursome.

Aroma has sour berry notes, some oak and bilberries. Flavour has cherries, some bilberries and woodyu notes. Also some ashy notes at the end of the glass. A battle of stout and oud bruin. And unfortunately the last one is winning.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of red wine and tart notes is dominant. Taste is also dominated by red wine notes with tart notes and light oak notes easily noticeable. The actual stout base beer is harder to distinguish with light dry roasted malt faintly discernible. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed but tart stout is not really a style that I find overly enjoyable.
