black with thin cream head, laces well. Boozy prune nose, light roast elements with considerable sweetness. Front palate is booze and raisin, light sweetness throughout, not as nuanced or integrated as triple bock 95, thin body gives away underattenuation as jowls begin hurting. Decently balanced profile.

Bottle: Poured a clear dark mahogany color ale with a large foamy head. Aroma of red wine notes with some caramelized malt and light sugary notes. Taste is also dominated by sugary notes with some vinous and red wine notes and some caramelized sugar. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting but I would prefer less dominance from the red wine barrel. pushkinwow (2889) - Ottawa, CANADA - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle opened up at the Ottawa 2015 Holiday gathering. Dark mahogany with a huge foamy head that was fairly out of control at the start.
