Bottle picked up a while back when released and was turned off from the series after trying the scotch edition and forgot I had this. So why not? Consumed from a mikkeller wine glass.

a - opened with nary a pop and poured a watery black. Looks like no carb.

s - black licorice, super sweetness, red wine.

t/m/o - overwhelming red wine. No carbonation. Kind of like red wine with chocolate in it. Extremely dry and thin. The front of the palate is red wine and the finish is cooling cocoa. I am not a huge fan of dry red wines so this is a waste on me and not my bag. Pretty crazy and complex but more of a science project than anything else.

Pitch black with a big, fluffy, brown head. Good head retention and very good lacing.

Richly aromatic. Solid sweetness and chocolate. Lots of oak and an integrated red wine fruitiness.

Sweet and creamy. Light roast. mild burnt character. Solid alcohol notes. Moderate fruitiness. Good oak. A balanced oak aged stout.

Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Good.

A solid beer. Sure, it is intense but it isn't unpleasant like many people seem to think. Nice.
