Alengrin (2087) - BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2014
Special strong Sardinian stout in which beer meets the mediterranean wine culture. Creamy, light beige foam, colour as good as black. Complex aroma of coffee, walnuts, chocolate, bayleaf, port wine, cassis, leather; taste bears loads of dark, candied fruits, complex spicy notes, full-bodied red wine and tannins, port wine, slightly smoky touch, near the end an increasingly strong, black coffee-like toasted bitterness, long and very dry with some warming alcohol. The idea of mixing beer and wine of high quality may seem odd, but in this case it works wonderfully.

tgncc (2830) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Beautiful vinuous aroma, oak, vanilla. Awesome. Dark brown poiur, almost no head. Sweet flavor, fruit, vanilla, wood, nice. The finish is oaky, slightly pine needle. Medium in body. Excellent.

Kikuzzo (143) - Bologna, ITALY - MAR 11, 2013
Mi aspettavo meglio, un po’ astringente, note vinose un po’ slegate da quelle maltate... comunque il livello è sempre alto

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 19/I/13 - 75cl bottle from Gradi Plato (Roma) @ RBBWG 2013 - BB: I/2014 - 2008 vintage (2013-81)

Clear purple brown beer, small aery beige head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: caramel, raisins, dried fruits, some chloride, grapes, bit sourish. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty sugary, red wine, grape fruice, pretty sour, bitter tannins, some caramel (ok, only read afterwards that this beer was made with grapes, suddenly the label makes sense). Aftertaste: little bitter, mocha, sour touch, caramel, bit malty, dry hops, bitter ending, bit chocolaty.

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2013
Clear brown colour, beige head. Sweet aroma, caramel, molasses and most. Vinous notes. Sweet flavour, light bitter, roasted malts and some sweet fruits. Light grape peel astringency. Finish liquorice and roasted malts.
Original idea, nice brew.

Thx. tderoeck / Tim for this one. 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2013. Apparently made Italian grapes, yay, appears to be some kind of vintage, I am guessing 2011 but that is a pure guess. Pours a blackish brown with a tanned head. Smell sweet, sticky & tad boozy, mocha, grapes, yeast, brown sugar & very strongly vineous. Didn’t know this was made with grapes when I wrote this stuff, was just a bit surprised & figured it just went south like this :) taste is bitter coffee, spices, mocha, chocolate plus a strong vinous character, dark fruits, light booze, malty with red grapes // red wine, light red wine booze in the back. Rather smooth, both sides don’t entirely work, I feel, don’t know, remember the bottle & see the notes but no distinct memories, going mainly by my badly written notes :) This was the last new beer of the evening for me, after this just re-sampling & drinking leftovers.
