COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Special version of our infamous Disco Beer, this time brewed with a slight darker malt profile and aged on Chardonnay red wine barrels instead of the usual white wine barrels.

bottle, ruby red pour, looks much the same as the original disco elixir, but with less head, way less head. Aroma - wow interesting, its almost like raunchy brown sugar, or sweaty cup cake icing..disco baby. Taste - hmmm, slight sour, slight malty, slight hops, time to get up and own the dance floor..I think i just grew chest hair. More wine character then the original I had yesterday, less malty, or more? I can’t tell, but its a cool fucking beer, and I’m enjoying it.

Pours in cloudy dark orange body with medium head. Aroma is packet with tropical fruits upfront, like mango, tangerine, lime. There is slight acidity in the background, probably from the barrels. Light notes of wood and strawberries. Taste is short light malty caramel sweet with quickly upcoming high earthy pine bitterness. Astringent after taste, which Id say is breaking the palate. Body is full with medium carbonation. Oily. For sure an interesting experiment.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours hazy deep red/brown with a huge frothy off-white head. Aroma of fruity hops, strawberries and red wine. Taste is light sweet, red wine, sugars, oak and wood. Not sure if this one was a good idea.

Holmen1 (4748) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2013
Flaske på RB-treff på Vistenes: højt skum! Rødvinsaktig, litt sur aroma som er nedtonet i smaken. Her er den balansert av litt karamell og pga karboneringen stor, litt uklar munnfylde. Lang ettersmak hvor bitterhet og surhet henger fint sammen.

beechner224 (1024) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy ruby red with white head. Aroma is a mix of malt and hops, get a hint of the red wine. Taste is smooth, vinous, with not much hop character left. Aftertaste is mildly sweet. Good one.

lusikka (7681) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 2, 2013
330 ml bottle @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere. Label says Chardonnay wine barrel aged. Pours a copper amber colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of sweet red berries, caramel and some earthiness. Flavour of sweet red berries, grass, tannine, distinct red wine barrel notes, yeast, herbs and some bitterness. Medium bodied, foamy mouthfeel and a warming, dry, berryish finish. The normal version was better.

rosenbergh (10206) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2013
330 ml bottle. BBE 2015. At the Nordic, Tampere, Finland. I'm not 100% sure if this is the Red Cap version as the cap wasn't red... But the label says it's Chardonnay aged not white wine aged... I don't know. I'm puzzled the rest of the night now... Dark reddish brown colour, hazy and with a huge frothy light tan head. Malt, sweetness, mild hops and toffee in the aroma. The aroma ain't that strong. The flavour is closer to an American Barley Wine than IIPA. Strong hoppy bitterness but even stronger maltiness, sweetness and mild vinous notes. Not that balanced. Bitterness in the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
