(bottle) pitch black colour with a frothy light-beige head. aroma of bretty funk, cherry stones, marzipan and dark chocolate, basically liquid black forest cake, with a touch of cornflakes, some brown sugar, banana and vanilla. flavour is mostly cherry juice and toasted malts, slightly ashy and quite sweet, with a hint of salted popcorn, dark fudge and a light-bitter herbal-hoppy finish. heavy-bodied with lively carbonation.

kappldav123 (6039) - GERMANY - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Stouty aroma. Starts strong malty, stouty, smoky-old, Background dry and bitter. Notes of chocolate and some lquorice. Finish warming-malty, still light sourish. Interesting beer.

Dry red wine with delicate sweet accents. Smell is incredible. Should be just a little more fill with malt body.

angel77 (2946) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 8, 2015
botella de 20 cl tomada en Oviedo en el momento el 06-07-2014. De el lúpulo. Elaborada en 20-12-2012 hasta 20-12-2017. lote 8668. Color muy oscuro casi negro con espuma beige persistente. Aromas maltosos y de vinos y frutos pasos. Cuerpo medio a fuerte con 11 vol que dan una sensación alcohólica intensa casi propia de un licor o vino potente, con paso por boca espumoso y ligero tipo licor. Sabores iniciales a maltas bastante dulces con frutos rojos y pasos. Bastante buena.

Aroma of tangy raisins and a little burnt caramel with a hint of something a little funky. Pours thick and sludgy from the bottle with a good amount of tan foam quickly disappearing to lacing. Tastes sweet and fruity like Christmas pudding, then quickly giving way to some red wine and tannin tartness, with a hint of warm woodiness. Mouth feel is rich and thick. This is great.

Was warned by the shop attendant at Barny’s that this one is a gusher and he wasn’t wrong. Pours dark murky cola brown with ruby and orange highlights and a huge persistent mocha head. Red wine is very obvious in the aroma, along with stewed dark fruits, caramel and some apple cider vinegar astringency too. Incredible taste - strong red wine, port wine and oak notes, muscovado sugar, prunes, caramel, hazelnut, soy and a light apple cider vinegar. The initial sweetness is nicely balanced by the light acidic astringency and dryness from the oak in the finish. Nice and full bodied. Best Aussie beer I’ve had, simple as that.

Brassée le 20.12.12 et meilleure avant le 20.12.17, une bière forte supplémentaire (extra strong beer). Une robe brune-rouge passablement trouble. Un nez de fruits macérés dans le vin rouge et surtout du bois trempé suite à de longues pluies tropicales. Une bouche boisée aux relent fruité et une finale poussiéreuse aux accents astringentes qui gâche tout.

(Brassée le 20.12.12 et meilleure avant le 20.12.17) La mousse est éruptive. La couleur est sans doute fidèle au style. Le nez est chocolaté, vineux, acide, épicée et parfumée par les cerises. La bouche flirte avec les Flandres. Présence intéressante de vin, de chêne, d’épices, de caramel et de chocolat. Le corps est crémeux et souple. La finale apporte des notes aigres, des fruits et de la réglisse. Agréable comme tout. Facile à boire. Dans le style des bières artistiques, certainement au-dessus de la mêlée. Merci à Kevin pour la bouteille.
