brnandersen (3349) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2013
375 ml. bottle, bottled a year ago. Poured in to a snifter. Dark amber colour with a reddish hue. Thin, tan head. A vinous aroma mixed with a heavy caramel malts. The red wine barrels really shines through: Red berries, oak, vanilla, and dark, dried fruits. A good hops presence, resin and floral. Taste is sweet. Full body, oily feel and a soft carbonation. Long lasting bitter finish with that excellent red wine barrel touch. A slight hint of alcohol. Excellent, this beer shows the perspective of barrel aging.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 3, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy orange-reddish with virtually no head. Aroma is intensely woody, slightly tart, quite sugarcoated malty, with notes of caramel, toabacco, red wine barrels and hops. Flavor is rich and sweet, medium bitter with strong notes of oaky barrels, toabacco and wine grapes. Long lasting finish with quite an alcoholic touch. Complex, dificult to describe.

375 mL bottle, in which the label sold me right away. Pours a dark amber color with a swirling fizz head. Caramel, brown sugar, delicous maple like aroma. Flavor is very maple, hints of the wine very late in the palate. Smooth and delicious barleywine. Loved it.

375ml bottle from BierNavigatie. Pale brown with flocks of sediment and a small creamy off-white head. Full body with light to moderate carbonation. Sweet with bitter tones and some slightly sourness. Herbs, brown sugar, wood, spices, caramel, citrus and dark fruits. A great complex full flavoured brew.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark amber red, big tanned head. Smells of oak, red wine, malts, some caramel. Taste is medium sweet, alot of oak, some sour wine acids, some caramel and candice sugar. Medium bitter finish, quite resiny. The base beer is one of Mikkeller’s better creations; i have to say that red wine barrelling has decreased the total beer experience for me. Still an ok beer; but also a reminder to all that barrel aging is not always the best idea

PotjeBier (2747) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2012
On tap @ Beer Temple. Redbrown color, hazy. Dense, off white head. Aroma’s: wood, red wine, some sweetness, umami, some roast. Retronasal it’s mostly red wine & malty sweet. Flavor is dry (tannines), red wine, a bit sweet, a bit vinous sour. Alcohol is warming. Medium bodied. Long finish with red wine, dry, bit roasted, bitter. Barrel aging could have been a bit shorter...

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
375ml bottle from the Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Hazy red-brown in colour with a thin but lasting tan head, light lacing. The aroma is of alcohol, wood, lots of caramel, lots of malt, red grapes. The flavour is of alcohol first, lots of wood and earth, grapes and of course wine. Warming mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, warming, woody. The barrel took away from the regular beer. Hightly alcoholic.
