Bottle at The Kernel during Thomas’s Birthday Party, London. Pours lightly cloudy ruby with a fine, bubbly head. Sweet caramel and toffee aroma, some cherries and light wood. Very sweet flavor, more caramel, some bourbon, honey, wood, vanilla. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm, sticky sweet finish, some caramel and vanilla, light wood, coconut, toffee, toast. Drinks well given the ABV. Very nice beer. Big. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
This came across as a mess both visually and on the flavor profile, it was muddled, weak grape notes, some undistinguished malt body... lachrymalisis (448) - Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2012
pours murky reddish-brown. loose frothy bubbles form and die rapidly. amazing aromas of wine-like apples covered in dark toffee, buttery oak, vanilla, slight mineral essence hiding underneath. taste is huge caramel-apple wine, musty oak and vanilla, almost saline-like mineral quality that recalls fluer de sel caramels. big and viscous mouthfeel, slightly dry on the finish, but overall one of the most interesting beer experiences I’ve ever had.

In short: An lifeless mixture of rotting dark grapes and tannins. Awful.HenrikSoegaard (14710) - Randers, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2011
How: Cute fancy 330ml bottle. Consumed a little over 1 year after first rating of this beer (was it bottled more than once?).
The look: Cloudy dirty burgundy body topped by a few beige bubbles circling the glass
In long: Nose is raisins, toffee, sweet ripe dark grapes, wine barrels. From the nose it doesn’t seem like a train wreck at all. Taste is another story. This is bad, bad, bad, bad. Almost no carbonation, rotting dark grapes, sweet marmalade, booze, the cheapest young uber-fruity red-wine, some caramel, tannins. Gross, this is stuff is nasty, I drank just enough to get a rating out of it and poured most of the bottle down the drain. And to think I paid almost $15 for a 330ml of this atrocity, this is how stupid I am, and I blame my mother for not being more selective on whose sperm she let on board.
Bottle. Frothy white almost no head. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Very vinius caramellic sweet flavor. Average light bitter finish. Creamy palate but way too flat. NIce but not worth the money. Rasmus40 (22171) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2011
