Black pour, thumbs worth of tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, roasted malt, some anise, dark chocolate. Taste of cocoa, dark liquorice, red grape juice, bitter. A ton of roast coming through in the finish. Medium to heavy body, smooth, fairly dry. Thanks to Sammy for this one! ryanfolty (2579) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2013

Bottle from trade, dark ruby brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is some malt and a bit of fruit sweetness. Taste is a boozy kick in the front, finishes with that nice dry stout chocolate flavor and finishes with a nice grape juice finish, nice body.

Förväntningarna blir höga när man slår upp den i glaset, snyggt skum och trevlig näsa. Smaken är mild med rostade toner och fruktig juice. Druvorna gör sig påminda och det är dem som lyfter den, men konstigt nog samtidigt det som också gör att den faller och känns lite blaskig.
