Draft - Black body with a very creamy beige head; Very fruity nose lots of it from the barrel ad tons of roast that is way better fitting the the non-barrel version; Very soft textured and carbonated body, bittersweet with a very warm alcohol bite; Long finish with tons of roasted burn, the port aromas are at first to apparent but melds fine together in late in the very long finish. Very fine beers, but I actually like the straight version better. skortila (5966) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2009
Tap @ København Ølfestival 2009. Aroma has chocolate, roast,, woodchips, port fruitiness and some vanilla. Opaque, black coloured beer with a brown, bit fluorescent head. The taste is sweet with a lot of (roasted) malts with chocolate, oak some fruitiness, some vanilla and some wine. Lingering maltiness of dark chocolate malts. Perfect balance and complexity. WOW! Best beer at the festival! deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2009
