Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2010 In short: An intense attack of red wine barrels with bubbles. A very good dark vinous ale. not much an imperial stout.
The look: Cloudy very dark burgundy topped by a very small beige head
In long: The nose is very vinous, fruity, wine barrels. Taste is an intense attack of wine barrels. This beer has a lot of oak tannins, and when I say a lot, I mean A LOT. A lot of fruits with fresh prunes, raisins, cherries, grapes, more… The tannic astringency is quite strong. A light acidity in the finish. This beer is very vinous, very fruity, very tannic, but one thing it is not is an imperial stout. I really liked that beer. Not excellent but a superb red-meat meal accompaniment. Totally different from the regular Podge. Comparing the regular Podge with this one is like comparing Apples and Microsofts.

Cloudy brown beer, good pale tan head. Comparatively light palate. Crispy and semi dry. Hardly any dark malt here. Lots of red wine. Minerals. A little wood in the back end. Mild aniseed alcohol. Semi dry finish. The base beer is overwhelmed by the barrel. But still very nice!

Nocturne (970) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
750ml bottle. Murky dark red-brown shade with thin cap. Big fruity red wine and chocolatey cocoa aroma. Taste follows the exact same path. Medium body, medium carb. Not hugely complex, but pretty tasty. The wine barrel works in good harmony with this stout.

MiP (13995) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2009
Bottle. Good vanilla aroma, some alcohol. Very dark brown colour. No head. The flavour starts off a little sweet, then it turns to port, vanilla, citric vinous note. Good alcohol level, but not overpowering. Rather thin mouthfeel.

oh6gdx (21553) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2009
Bottled. Deep ruby red colour, not much head. Aroma is caramel malts, wood, some caramel and also some mild notes of alcohol. Flavour is caramel, fruits, some wooden notes, mild spices and a certain sourness. Not very much imperial stout left in the flavour in this one.

fonefan (37269) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2009
Bottle 75cl.
Clear dark brown color with virtually none head. Aroma is light heavy malty, roasted, caramel, fruity - berry, red wine, cask wood, licorice - anis. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet, light acidic and moderate bitter with a long to average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is flat. [20090306]

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2009
The oak aged beer is black with a red hue and a creamy head. The aroma has strong notes of bourgogne barrel, roasted malt and yeast. The flavor has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, bourgogne barrel, yeast, licorice, caramel, plum and it is quite vinous and nice.

dchmela (2740) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Draft at Redlight. Blackish red pour. Sour, roasted grain, oak barrel, cherry aroma very wine like. Chocolate malt, sour cherry oak flavor slightly tart. Again, lots of wine elements blended very well. Tasty.
