75cl bottle @ Finissons ces pétroles tasting, merci Vincent. Cuivre, col fin beige. Arôme au nez malté, grillé, biscuité avec un rétro fruité noir, certainement le raisin pressé, je note aussi une petite touche de noisette. Palais est malté, grillé, caramel, biscuité, fruits noirs tirant vers la figue et date et prune, en fin de bouche je trouve également un léger ajout de fraise. Le profil de raisin arrive en rétro et contraste avec le côté malté.

Pours almost black with a nice cappuccino coloured frothy head. Aroma is very complex and intriguing, quite roasty but I can definitely also taste the grapes! They give a fruity feel to the stouty aroma. Maybe even some hints of chocolate. Quite thick mouthfeel. Flavour is also very complex, quite roasty, but smooth. It is vinous, quite earthy, prune and especially cherry notes, really feels like a mix of an imperial stout and a good red wine. Finish is smooth and herbal sweet, has something of a red wine finish but also bitter. Doesn’t linger as long as most impys though. Brilliant beer and really exciting to try a grape ale.

Noticeable grape notes and fruit flavor. Reminds me of good classic imperial stouts, but seems lighter and more fruity. Appearance is great: dark brown with almost white foam. It has a nice grape aftertaste which lingers for some time.

Birra emozionante, scura, corposa, equilibrata, profumi intensi di caramello uve passite, frutta secca e cacao, al palato non delude le aspettative, anzi, le supera! Capolavoro.

Absolutbeerginer (54) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Bière chaleureuse douce-amère. Les arômes de cacao et de café se mêlent aux arômes de résinée, raisins secs et de mélasse. L’alcool est bien (trop) prononcé au nez et en bouche. Un peu écœurante.

Aroma di malti tostati, ma più complessa; colore scuro, lucido, riflessi color prugna fino al rubino. Apre come una stout, ma poi c’è il dolce di una freschezza totale, che non può diventare stucchevole. Il palato rimane con decise note tostate ma ammorbidite da un fruttato fresco, intenso e persistente dato dall’uva. Gran birra, ben bilanciata nasconde bene l’alcolicità dei 10abv, l’unicità complessiva la rende un’esperienza da fare.

danielemolino (106) - torino, ITALY - JAN 9, 2016
Comprata in bottiglia da 75 a lo sfuso a torino e bevuta a temperatura ambiente. Colore tonaca di frate. Schiuma media e poco persistente. Stile a se con note di liquirizia. Buona percezione del cannonau. Dialettale. Punta di astringente.

BeerandBlues2 (11974) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a large, frothy beige head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is soft chocolate malt, nutty and bready malt, dates and figs, earthy yeast and earthy hops. Flavor is sweet bready and nutty malt, dark fruits, some cherry notes, light earthy hops and bitterness with a lightly sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Ambro206 (358) - ITALY - JAN 24, 2015
Una birra incredibile, emozionante. Nessun confronto in Italia, Barley non delude. Al naso aromi vinosi e di cioccolato fondente conturbanti aprono ad una bevuta gloriosa. La birra si presenta nel bicchiere con il suo colore bruno e una discreta schiuma. In bocca si compie il miracolo gli aromi di vino, dati dalla sapa di Cannonau, i malti fortemente tostati e l’alcolicità si fondono alla perfezione. Non riesco a trovare un difetto a questa birra. Complimenti!

Alengrin (4340) - 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.
