3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown/black, with brown/reddish glares, no head.
Aroma: wood, basement, feet, balsamic, cardboard, a bit of vinegar, definitely a lot of off-flavours.
Taste: a lot of wine, plums, wood, coffee, licorice, a bit of spices and hops (herbs and resin). It starts sweet with some sourness in the end.
Palate: oily, no carbonation, very warm, a bit astringent
Overall it didn’t convince me much, the aroma is too rich of off-flavours and I didn’t like it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2014. Pours pitch black with a small, brown, oily head. Aroma is red vinous, roasted, brown sugar, heavy, bitter roast, wood, tanins and cherry. Taste has SO much wine barrel charater: Dry, red grapes, slight sour, slight bitter, grape peel, some roast and a subtle, sugary sweetness. Mad execution, but it doesn’t blend together that well in my opinion. Medium full body and low carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
@ Borefts 2014.
Pour pitch black, with as good as no head.
Aroma is packed with chocolate, bitter coffee, salty licorice, some roasted malts as well.
The taste is super sweet, with a good dose of bitterness. Some "red wine tannins" with some acidic wood in the way back.
Slighly oily body, with a flat carb. A little unbalanced imo.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasting at Borefts 2014, Bodegraven Netherlands. Black body, no foam, only some soapy bubbles. Aoma is chocolatee, oak, some wine, aome unexpected spoilness )probably from the Brett). Taste was too oaky, with the sourness from the wine, some dark fruits and chocolate. Strong aftertaste. Full body with low to no carbonation. Not my thing maybe.

Sampled @ Borefts. A bit weird beer.. thin, little body.. The begin is sour but the end sweet. Hints of red wine. Not so compelling beer.
