3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of tart red wine vinegar, sugared plums, and slight chocolate. Pours deep black red with a small film. Taste is an interesting blend. Subdued vinegar notes, dark fruits, plum and slight cane sugar. No bite whatsoever and very pleasant.
Bottle shared by a friend. Poured a Brown colour with a slightly gushing tanned head. Nose is caramel malts, toffee, oak, charred smoke, vineous wine notes. And red fruits. Burned rubber, and a bit to carbonated. Sweet honey and raisins as it warms. Weird aftertaste Travlr (25267) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle. Clear brown color, large beige head. Aroma of light berries, vinegar. Taste is tart berries, sweet caramel. wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Big bottle. When we popped it, it foamed and foamed and foamed. Super carbonated and aroma of pennies and fruits. After the carbonation blew off the aroma was fruitier and more oaky and winey. Flavor was fresh red wines, oaks and belgian spices. Medium light body and medium sweetness. This definitely has some issues but worked out for the best I think. SSSteve (4006) - - FEB 13, 2014

Pours dark like a cola. A bit overly sweet, but the smoothness is impressive. No hint of the high abv. Nice Belgian style beer!

On tap at Capone's in Norristown, PA. A very unique brew with a huge punch of various flavors. It may almost have too many different flavors, and almost tastes chaotic. Works for the most part though. alobar (3833) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Dark brown pour with an off-white fizzy head. Aroma of plum,cherry, candii sugar, and oak. Dark fruit flavor with wood, honey, and merlot. A bit tart. Improved as it warmed. bhensonb (15351) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Capped 750 from Beachbum25. Many thanks for this. Pours very dark brown with a foamy/fizzy light tan head. The aroma suggests a moderate flemish ale. Hints of sour. Hints of oak. Vinosity. Med + body. Flavor is dark fruit and malt, vinous, oaky, astringent, somewhat earthy/sour. This finishes extremely tasty. Excellent ale. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2013
Thanks, Chris. Nose has mild dark fruits. Flavor is pushed through by excessive carbonation. Mild roast in the background. A bit thin. NikkTwist (3253) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Draft at Eulogy. Dark cloudy ruby pour with a foamy tan head. Very little aroma. Tastes like an otherwise standard malty brown ale that has a lot of wine barrel flavors. Slight Brett. The mix is interesting but not good. I have had, and liked, wine barrel aged beers before (Jolly Pumpkin springs to mind) but this one just does not work for me. Feels like a half and half with a table red.
