Bottle. Pours a hazy brownish red with an off-white head. Sweet, malty aroma. Flavour is sweet and fruity with notes of alcohol. Well-balanced. Round body. Has a red wine-feeling to it. I find it a bit too sweet, though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a intruiging slightly oily looking, murky dark almost opaque amber colour with a fine bubbled medium size shortish lasting beige head. Aroma is mainly fruity malt with a hint of something medicinal. Palate is smooth and medium bodied, slightly cloying with low carbonation. Flavour is medium strong molasses and generic cola sweet toated grainy malt. The bitterness seems added on like an afterthought appearing late in the finish as an over roasted almost burnt malt with little to none hop bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Dark, brownish red with a smallish, tanned head. Mild, fruity and caramely aroma. Sweetish, caramely and toffeeish flavor with pine, anise and low, lingering bitterness. Medium-bodied, sticky-syrupy and low-carbonated palate. A quite enjoyable, smooth and balanced, spicy ale, but nothing very special. Feels more like a dessert drink than a substitute for red wine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque ruby rd colour (duh) with a good, lasting creamy head. Big fruity and vinuous aroma. Flavour is both malty and hoppy, so i guess it’s well balanced. Texture is quite thick. There is a bit of alcohol in the finish. Dangerously drinkable.
