Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a small brown foamy head. Aroma of black chocolates malt with light roasted malt and plenty of residual sugar from the Sauterne barrels. Taste is also asset mix of black chocolate with some light roasted malt and nice sauterne notes with plenty of residual sugar notes. Body is full with nice creamy texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Nice drinkability with just the right level of complexity – I would love to have this on a more regular basis.

Shared with JLindros. Received in a trade. 2013 vintage bottle 272/522.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark black hue with a mocha thin head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of light chocolate, faint malts, sweet roast, loads of sweet wine. Rather vinous.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, good chocolate notes, light sweet malts, the sweet wine notes are pleasant. Very dessert like with soft acidic notes.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, light sweetness on the finish.

O - Overall this beer was rather tasty and dessert like thanks to the wine. Really nice faint chocolate. A tasty beer with good sweet wine.

Thanks to rudzud, 2013 vintage.

Nice creamy thick darker head, fades at a med pace, little lacing, pitch black long legs.

Nose very roasty black malts, charred notes, acrid like, interesting oak barrel notes, vanilla toasty notes earthy hops, super dark almost smoke, burnt like, little cocoa.

Taste dark rich malts, little creamy thick lush, dark cocoa, mild fruity raisin, into mild acrid burnt roast, smoke notes, cocoa dust and little nougat, mild sweet, little booze warmth, char, super dark bitter cocoa. Finish sticky semi sweet, little bitter sticky, lingering big roasted charred hint of smoke.

Mouth is fuller bod, thick little creamy, mild booze.

Retro. Oozing from the tap, great carbonation and not over the top sweetness. Great bourbon flavor.

This is one of the most unique stouts I've ever tried. It has the richness and density of a stout but the crispness and refreshing character of white wine. Somehow FFF gets it all to work well together
