UPDATED: MAY 8, 2017 Bottle at Erzbierschof Monday Club. Pours hazy brown. Aroma is caramel, nuts, lots of residual malts, sweet, maltose, Ovaltine. Body is heavy, sweet and rather strong, with a very soft carbonation. Lightly fruity, orange. Sweet palate. okay.

Il colore è un bel tonaca di frate con un bel cappello di schiuma. Il naso è semplicemente fantastico, direi sognatore. In bocca secondo me è meno incisiva della parte olfattiva, ma nonostante i gradi ha una gran bevibilità, giù il cappello.

RW80 (2486) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2017
0,7 l bottle. Apperance: An a llmost black with a nice cream coloured frothy head. Aroma :is very complex, roasted malts, coffee, grapes, hints of chocolate. Taste: Is quite complex, grape and vinous tones, prunes and a bit of zzest combined with the dark malts, roasted malts, coffee and chocolate hints. Finsish is a bit too sweet, but it does have some nice bittereness, also the aftertaste is a bit short. Medium body,gentle carbonation. Nice and interesting hybrid between beer and wine. backlog rating.

2008 bottle. 5 oz pours a dark black color with almost no head. Aromas of chocolate malt, dark fruits, caramel. Full bodied, a little past its prime, but a nice beer.

onceblind (9149) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2017
Deep plummy brown under a thin light tan head. Lovely boozy toffee malt aroma with a big sticky grape and fig and raisin nose. Big semisweet nose with sweet berries and grape and fig and belgianish undertones with a mild grapey fleshy dryness and mild citric bitterness. Smooth and fruity sweet overall.

Brown color with a hint of ruby when held to the light. Diminishing tan head. Sweet toasted to roasted malts, mild oak and spices in the scents. Dark dried fruit, mild coffee, earth and woody flavors. 10/11

sebletitje (9951) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2016
75cl bottle @ Finissons ces pétroles tasting, merci Vincent. Cuivre, col fin beige. Arôme au nez malté, grillé, biscuité avec un rétro fruité noir, certainement le raisin pressé, je note aussi une petite touche de noisette. Palais est malté, grillé, caramel, biscuité, fruits noirs tirant vers la figue et date et prune, en fin de bouche je trouve également un léger ajout de fraise. Le profil de raisin arrive en rétro et contraste avec le côté malté.

Pours almost black with a nice cappuccino coloured frothy head. Aroma is very complex and intriguing, quite roasty but I can definitely also taste the grapes! They give a fruity feel to the stouty aroma. Maybe even some hints of chocolate. Quite thick mouthfeel. Flavour is also very complex, quite roasty, but smooth. It is vinous, quite earthy, prune and especially cherry notes, really feels like a mix of an imperial stout and a good red wine. Finish is smooth and herbal sweet, has something of a red wine finish but also bitter. Doesn’t linger as long as most impys though. Brilliant beer and really exciting to try a grape ale.

Noticeable grape notes and fruit flavor. Reminds me of good classic imperial stouts, but seems lighter and more fruity. Appearance is great: dark brown with almost white foam. It has a nice grape aftertaste which lingers for some time.

Birra emozionante, scura, corposa, equilibrata, profumi intensi di caramello uve passite, frutta secca e cacao, al palato non delude le aspettative, anzi, le supera! Capolavoro.
