Hazy brown colour, no head. Light fruity aroma. The fruity sweetness from the red wine barrel is evident but overall lacks depth and complexity. FatPhil (17730) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 1, 2014

Very nice rich sweet caramelly malts, sweet red berries. Almost watery palate, light and amazingly drinkable for a 10% beer. I’m not getting the alcohol, but I’m on a pro La Trappe wave at the moment, and I don’t get that. Alcohol is warming, but not hot. Mellow wine aspects nice, and almost certainly contribute to the covering of the alcohol. Anna thinks it’s a bit boozy. Smooth palate, nice to sip, perhaps just a bit too winey. Good one from La Trappe.
Corked and caged bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a small sized off white head. Woody, dark fruits, caramel, and some lighter vinous qualities. Alcohol content well hidden. Zer0 (1227) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle shared at THT. Pours cloudy Amber. Aroma is caramel, yeast, fruits and mango. Taste is pretty sweet. Really good. worldbeertaste (1819) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Hazy brown with a thin, white, ring of a head. Deep amazing smell of rich caramel roasted nutty malt, with figs, but and sweet fruit. Medium oily body. Tastes of alcohol with sweet malt, figs, nuts, raisins, and a nutty finish. Delicious and seriously complex in taste and smell. Amazing.
