2005 Bottle. Cloudy dark brown beer. Sour coca cola like nose. Crispy palate. When fridge cold the beer also tastes of sour coca cola. As it warms up a little oak comes through and the cola magically turns to malt with rich red wine notes. Finishes dry and lightly sour. The beer rewards patience.

Thank you Styles for this bottle! Poured a medium reddish/brown color with a very small sized off white head. Aromas of oak, vinous, dark fruits (cherries), wood, caramel, and some vanilla. Nice. Tastes of wood, vanilla, lighter vinous quality, caramel, and some dark fruits. Light alcohol in the finish but overall well hidden.

Bottle... This beer rocks! Pours a murky caramel color with a small, frothy, khaki head. The nose is earthy, malty, vinous and acidic. Notes of praline, oak and red wine. Very good, but also very understated. Full-bodied with tingling carbonation. Rich, malty flavors of caramel, buttery toffee and praline mesh wonderfully with tangy, vinous acidity. Observations of wood and red wine. The finish is earthy, acerbic, and then Mojave-dry. The high ABV is hidden very well throughout. World class stuff!

Dark brown with tiny beige head. Sweet vinious aroma with roasted malt, ripe fruits and caramel notes. Sweet flavour with ripe fruits, yeast and caramel notes.

Bottle shared by Sean, thanks! Poured a hazy brownish amber with a light brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma was full of sweet grain with honey and caramel as well as a bit of underlying dry tart grape. Flavor had a more of a dry tart grape note with sweet grains and a hint of backing caramel.

Tap at Hop Devil Grill. Dark brown beer with a creamy tan head. Beautiful spicy aroma with cloves and coriander along with a touch of sweet cardamom. Lots of soft red wine character that helps to accent the spicy yeast that they’ve used in here. Flavour is good, juicy and fruity showing lots of shiraz grapiness. Medium bodied and very vineous. Loads of red wine aroma/flavour. Light dates, raisins and dried fruit underlying the cherry/berry esters. Sweet and slightly toasty malts. Some blackberry and banana as the temperature really starts to warm. Warming brings out a touch of tannic astringency and soft vanilla that helps dry out a beer that would otherwise be quite sweet. A great example of how a barrel can accent a beer rather than dominate it.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 12oz bottle. Deep hazy black plum/purple colored body. Big sweet, sticky, resinous plums in the nose. Huge, decadent layer of woody red wine and port. Perfumy and rich. Thick up front, turning frothy and thinner over the middle, with a Belgian yeast and sour red grape flavor. Amazingly rich. Wine-like but properly woody and dry, which works very well as a beer.

(From notes) Tap at the Solstice party 07 provided by some kind soul who thought driving up from Cincinnati for the event deserved a free drink. Pours a deep amber brown with a small off white head that disappears quickly. The aroma has ample dark fruits and vanilla with strong vinous qualities. It seems to be favoring red grapes. Hints of oak and alcohol. The flavor is mildly tart and vinous, again favoring red grapes. Additional notes of vanilla, caramel and oak. The alcohol remains hidden for the most part. Definitely a standout for the evening.

Bottle shared by Eric. Pours a dark brown color with a very small white head. The aroma is sweet cocoa, some sour fruity berries. A hot flavor of berries, earthy, some oak, something akin to red wine, quite vinous. Decent, just very odd. Enjoyable on the whole.
