Bottle @ THE Stouts Tasting Pt II: 2 Stouts 2 Furious. Thanks to Leighton for this. The pour’s deep brown with a tiny head. The nose is fruit by the foot. Jammy red wine. Fresh strawberry. Earthy toasted coconut. Chocolate-dipped bruised fruits. A bit of charred malts. The taste is more of the same. Rich roast malt, coffee rind bitterness. Nice red wine accents. More berry, grapes. Nice woody hop finish. Peppery dryness. Really well balanced. The wine barrel really adds a great fruitiness to this beer. Overall, superlative stuff. Great.

Nearly opaque black color with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, red wine, citrus, pine, light roast and some floral hops. Taste of some roasted malts, vanilla, red wine, tobacco, cocoa, and a creamy mouthfeel. I liked Jim better.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Black and cool to pour with a head that separates. I will sy it. The best thing about this black ipa is that it does not tadye like one. But there is some roastiness. It is a very nice ipa. I like this a lot.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 Huge thanks to yourefragile for sharing. Served in Hill Farmstead stemware. Pours near black with a good beige head and nice lacing. Some roast followed by great wine barrel character. Hops come through in bitterness and flavor. Some resin and fruit. Pine. So smooth.

WOW! great spiciness from French oak. This is absolutely insanely good. How is this possible? This release is the best so far.

Bottle. Nice black pour with off white foam and tons of lacing. Aroma is absolutely enticing - tons of roasted malts, burnt oak, vanilla, piney hops, pepper, five spice, ginger and tons of raisins and plums complete this über layered aroma. Taste is roasty, hops and wine barrel flavors coexist remarkably well - I wasn’t expecting it to be this harmonious. Palate is quite dry, well carbed, medium bodied, long lasting winey finish. Surprising, and amazingly good. This is one of many beers that I wish to have not shared with Fred ;)

500 ml bottle. It pours a dark brown color with a really nice, thick lasting tan head. The aroma is potently citrusy, fruity and floral with mild vinous notes, cocoa, spice and barely any wood. The flavor has much more of the wine barrel influence. Up front it’s very strong with a combination of grapefruit, licorice, red wine, spice and pine. Little oak near the finish. The alcohol feels strong here, but the body is not overly thick. The finish is bitter and vinous. Really well balanced and well done as usual.

tkrjukoff (4205) - SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle tnx Sean. Pours pitch black with a huge cresny tanned head leaving lace. Aroma is fruity vinous hint of sweetness pleasant balanced roast and hopoiness. Flavor is so good, balanced between the dark astringent and bitter, subtile maltyness very fruity and vinous anf great bitter finish.

Bottle, generously shared by Al, pours black with medium and lasting beige head. Really sick appearance to this black IPA. Aromas is plums, roast, copper, figs, and dates. flavor is grape juice, malt, bitter hops, licorice, roasted grains, chocolate. Medium bodied with a long lasting finish. Stoked I was able to try this. Got even better as it warmed.

Bottle 500 ml. Black with a small persistent brown head and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, pepper, citrus, raisin, plum and wood. Taste of roasted malt with citrus and strong presence of the wine barrel aging. Mouthfeel is dry but almost creamy too with a vinous finish. Crazily complex but not 100% that all those flavors fits perfectly well together. Still a superb beer!
