The Podge Belgian imperial Stout was aged for several months on wine barrels from the french Bourgogne. The beer has subtle winearomas with accents of red fruit and chocolate. Special Burgundian Babblebelt Edition.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Draft. Pours a black body with a tan head. Roasted malt, dry with a huge malt character. Woody dry finish, some light oak and licorice notes. Chewy malted etoh and some dark fruit amongst the chocolate malt. Nice.

Boutip (5940) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2010
Bottle: Poured a medium black color stout with a large foamy head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt and vinous notes are a strange mix that I am not sure to enjoy. Taste is also a weird mix between some lightly roasted malt with some vinous notes but instead of nice Bourgogne notes it feels more like cheap wine that I can procure at the corner store. Strange mix to say the least and not one that works very well IMO. Body is too light for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Strange mix that I won’t be revisiting soon and not worth the price tag IMO.

egajdzis (6130) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2010
Murky brown color with a small, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruits, vanilla, roasted malts, cocoa, and smoke. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, spices, dried fruits, vanilla, and light alcohol as well. Head and shoulders above the regular version!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - FEB 13, 2010
Tap at Max’s. Pours a clear peaty brown with no head. Aroma of dark fruits, oak. Some sherry, peat in the taste with light barrel notes. Light bodied. Should be taken out of the RIS category.

Bottle shared at the after-Bruery tasting. Imperial stout, huh? Not sure I would have pegged this one as such. Pours dark brown, not too close to black for this style, with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is dark fruit, Belgian yeast, spices, oak, and mild roast. A little tart and a little sweet. Flavor is both sweet and mildly tart, somewhat vinous, definitely Belgian-tasting, but not very stoutlike. There is some roast and chocolate, but it does not come to the forefront as much as I’d expect. A little yeasty with oak and spices. A tad thin for the style, and not as smooth on the mouthfeel as I’d like. Definitely interesting, but not great overall in my opinion.

Bottle courtesy of my Canadian Secret Santa. Pours garnet in color with no discernible head. Looks like a barrel aged porter instead of a stout. Smells of red grapes, oak, and tart red fruit. Tastes of medicinal cherry sucrets, sour red grapes, fruit roll ups, and bakers cocoa. Thin in body and odd for the style, but interesting in flavor.

Bottle@Home. Very fruity aroma, red & black berries, lactic. Opaque colour, fine beige head, good lace. Sweet, light sourish, light bitter, fruity (berries), vanilla, red wine. Bit thin but burning in your throat. Flavourful and certainly not an average beer.
