dunkpigen (379) - Kolding, - JAN 28, 2011
Pours almost black with brown/golden edges. Aroma is soooo fantastic. Chocolate chocolate chocolate, nuts and a nice hint of redwine and earthy notes and also some hops to balance out the chocolate sweetness. Flavour is so nice too. Hops, chocolate, redwine and earthy notes comes together in a very nice and balanced beer :o)

Bottle at Mikkeller Bar. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head and a treacle and wine aroma. There is a rich dark molasses flavor with some coffee and a red wine finish. Normally I don’t care for wine barrel aged stouts, but this one works quite well.

Pedrens (125) - SPAIN - FEB 14, 2015
Botella 330. 2014 vintage...marrón súper oscuro, casi negro opaco. Espuma muy fina jabonosa...aroma a cacao negro, vino tinto, cerezas, madera, alcohol, cierto toke ácido, vainilla, cafe...cambiante...en boca...una pasada...en un primer momento es dulce con sabores a cerezas, evoluciona hacia algo mas ácido con sabores a vino tinto, para terminar con un amargo a chocolate algo lupulado...en boca no se nota apenas el alcohol. Carbonatacion baja. Textura aceitosa, redonda. Esto si que es un birrote!!! Gracias David de Cervezorama por el regalako!!!

330 ml bottle - 2014 vintage. Pours deep dark brown slight fizzy head. Intensely roasted nose, dark cherries, a gentle touch of Pinot Noir. Medium oily mouthfeel, no carbonation. A bit dull. Taste is harsch bitter cold coffee and roasted beans and some punchy tannines by the finish.

MarcoDL (2582) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle. Black oily pour, small white head. Vinous aroma of dry red fruit, vanilla and cacao. Taste of vanilla, bordeaux fruitiness, cherry, oak, cacao, dark malt and a subtle hoppy passion fruit. Soft mouthfeel. This is really amazing, great combination of imperial stout and red wine.

330ml bottle courtesy of Benzai. Thanks. Pours a jet black with a small tan head that soon fades to a fine ring. The aroma is strong with red wine grapes,and dark chocolates. The taste is chocolate covered cherries. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes medium in duration and bittersweet. Overall: just amazing.

CraftBeerNick (1120) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle at home, 27th December 14. This beer was bottled, 6th November 14 and is only stated as 10%. It’s black, aroma is vinous, slightly sour, liquorice. Taste is vinous, coffee, slight chocolate, wood, the Bordeaux is a distinctive wine and the flavour comes through with the barrel and complements the base beer. Excellent barrel ageing, de Molen rule the world on this style
