4.22/5  rDev -3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Bottle from 2002.

The body is deep black and holds a head that is initially two fingers thick, but compresses to a tight, creamy mocha color that is about index finger sized. Once settles the head is quite lasting.

Aroma is chocolate, mild sour notes, lactose, pineapple, cocoa, malted milk balls and vanilla. The fore presents a big blast of red wine followed by tart fruits, pineapple, mild sour tartness, vanilla and oak which really starts in the middle and goes into the finish. There are note of coarse sweet cream and chocolate in the far aftertaste. Very enjoyable beer that mellowed out nice and smooth. (620 characters)

Thanks for the bottle Andrew! Opaque oily pour, creamy mocha ring, with nice spotty, dotted lace. Huge oak, woody, vanilla, cabernet aromas, with mild roasted malt and lots of deep rooted dark fruit. Flavours are tannic, vinious, and I picked up english style hops as opposed to the american bad boys that are in this thing. Lots of vanilla, wood. Very subtle, and certainly a sipper, but good for the strength. I’d like some more please. (439 characters)

Batch No. 4, Bottled Nov 2002. Enjoyed Nov 2006.

A: Black, tan head, no retention, very little lace.

S: Very boozy, wine, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit. (The smell & taste are just a little better than 4.5, so I'll adjust the score here).

T: Very winey, grapes, chocolate, dark fruit, molases, vanilla; modest bitterness; Very warming, but not harsh. Fairly dry.

M: Moderate body and carbonation, well attenuated, slight hints of chalk & acidity.

D: Very good considering the strength... but it's a sipper. (526 characters)
