Bottle. Pours a dark brown with light tan head. Lots of deep rich flavors throughout. Tart berries, dried fruits, oak and red wine. Tartness adds to these flavors and ties it all together. Mouthwatering and wonderful. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 28, 2012

"a surprise appearance since i didnt even know this existed. i like the 3FH, but this took that beer to a whole nother level. big juicy syrah fruit and leather flavors atop an already pretty nice dark belgian strong. vinous and a little tart (though I would not class is as a sour as RB did)...just a barreled BSA. Good stuff. If I’d had this solo I may have even scored it higher." yespr (46567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2012

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of thagr81_us. Pours a hazy, nutty brown with a tiny, off-white head. Tart, rotten fruit aroma - think Flemish red. Medium body, low carbonation an initial brown sugar sweetness but soon the woody tartness chimes in, a red wine tartness that really cleans your tastebuds. Delicious. 250113 faroeviking (11025) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 15, 2013
