Been a while since I had this. 750ml > snifter. 2mm ringed grey head. Deep burgundy- filtered but almost opaque. Smells like the moist bowels of an oak pinot noir barrel, boozier. Hints of cherry, apple, grapey malt, booze. Somewhat tart up front. Carbonated til the end, where it flattens out and booze. Overall pretty good complexity. Good CO2 profile malt present, hop not. My real perception of its hinderance is the inability to mask the 9%ABV. Tastes like a port, but instead of 15%, its 9...

To be perfectly honest this beer tastes like someone put some red wine, perhaps a Cabernet Sauvignon, in my glass with my beer. I did not like it overall though it actually tasted well with the Filet Mignon that I ate with it but I didn't like its overall sweetness and lack of character.

Sweet, with oak notes, and a muddled finish. A bit of barnyard but no acidity or fruit to cut it. Perhaps I got a bad bottle based on other reviews, but I fought my way through a half glass and dumped the rest down the drain.

Malty aroma has a tart fruity overtone and a hint of horehound. Pours a clear, dark mahogany with a thick wheat head. Malty flavor has woody and tart fruity notes, giving it an almost wine-like nature. Smooth texture has good fizz and rather wine-like body, leaving a tart and woody finish. Distinctive, enjoyable, tasty.
