Bottle. [thanks skortila & caesar]kermis (12869) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2011
Pours nutty brown to black with a big, fizzy, frothy, beige head. Lovely aroma of milky chocolate, clear red wine, mild roasted, mild vanilla, some oak and a floral spicy note. Medium to low carbonation, fine light and very dry mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, peppery (chili), roasted, dry, dark chocolate, a bit milky feel, vinious, oaky dryness. Chewy liquorice and tobacco notes. Piney, malty dry and grainy in the finish. Very lovely and elegant!
Bottle from ABC Beers. Pours black with beige head. Aroma is chocolate, oak, dark fruits and A little vanilla. Flavor has some licorice and caramel as well. Medium body and soft carbonation. Koelschtrinker (20216) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Frisch malziger Antrunk, der später erheblich intensiver wirs. Herbe und frische Noten werden dabei beibehalten. Darin dezent holzig, im Abgang wird das Bier aber überraschend wässrigder, nur die trockenen Röstnoten des Malzes überleben. Das Ende passt definitiv nicht zum Bier. 10/11/9/9//10

75CL bottle shared at tasting
pitch black with low carbonation and close to no foam.
actually tastes like red wine, also a lot of clove going on. there is a porter-taste in the background, but the red wine takes the upper hand. a bit sweet. Overall: a very strange beer, very nice. deanso (10070) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - MAY 20, 2011

Thanks to bierkoning for that one! Bottle looks good, beer in the glass also. Starts malty and strong, some coffee notes and also fruity notes of berries. Nice sourish background. Finish shows more and more hop notes, nice bitter side. Well balanced finish, very drinkable. Very nice beer! altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 17, 2011
