0.375 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Reddish brown color. Aromas of red berries and tropical fruits, oak and tobacco. Thick bittersweet toffeish, nutty and oaky taste with red berries and some tropical fruits (pineapple and grapefruit) . Full body. Oakiness is slightly overboard. Rich complex taste, not completely in balance but still enjoyable. SlackerMads (3469) - DENMARK - FEB 2, 2014

Highly aromatic, vinous ale with intense alcohol and juicy grapes aromas. The appearance is spectacular from the onset, a beautiful, lasting, sticky white head towering above the hazy reddish amber hue. While it’s not hugely complex for a 12%+ digestive, it manages to hit some unusual flavour ranges, amidst which stand out a gently tannic, tea-like but even more so wild rice reminiscent texture, complementing the timid hops nicely in balancing out the flavour profile... well, as much as you may consider this sweet monster balanced. On the less pleasant side, it is also fairly phenolic, featuring rosewater, clove and white Pepper nuances that are important to the flavour profile I suppose, but not the best fit to the rich maltiness. Some extra acidity would be welcome in here, as when the beer warms up, it becomes pretty hot.
