Pours see through dark brown with a spritzy brown head. Aroma has christmassy spices, redwine, mexican spices and chocolate. Different but very nice. Taste is along the same lines, very tasty and with tingling peppers. The mouthfeel is the only thing I would have wanted different. It’s a little on the lighter side. A creamier mouthfeel would have completed the picture. Aftertaste is Mexican as hell but the red wine adds a mellow quality. Very nice. chrisv10 (17910) - DENMARK - JUN 28, 2017

Draught at MBCC. Green Session. Jet black, bubbles on the surface, dotted spots on the glass. Rich smell of chocolate cake, lightly spiced. Well blended flavours of liquorice, dark grapes, chocolate and wood. Vinous impression. Dark spiced finish. Lovely sipper qualities.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, green session. Aroma is quite spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg notes. Taste is dusty, acidic with light wine notes in the background, fudge and spices.

MBCC. Black with a brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, cinnamon, chocolate and wood. Flavor is very sweet and rather bitter. Sweet and rather bitter finish with warming alcohol. Oily. 130517 Vignale (3932) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2017
Provad på MBCC-17. Kolsvart. Doft och smak av kokos, marsipan, chili, mörk choklad, kakao, ekfat, vanilj, tanniner. Rödvinstonerna lyser igenom en aning, men främst genom strama ektoner. Gör sig väl. Bra hetta från chilin, ger lite sting och värme. Kanske lite spretig men snarare komplex då smaklagren gifter sig bra. Riktigt gott. DSG (15035) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 30, 2017

Sample at MBCC 2017. Smell of red wine, dark malts, chocolate and cinnamon. Similar taste. Sweet. Alcoholic warmth. Nice. copestx (227) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2017
At MBCC. Red wine flattens out the flavors for me here. It still has some spice and the light cacao/cinnamon/vanilla thing going on, but this has been my least favorite variant. Still a solid beer, but the bourbon or Tequila versions (or the original!) are much better.
