jrallen34 (3504) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
12.7oz bottle picked up at WLV poured into my Rodenbach Grand Cru glass... Pours a medium brown with lots of brick notes, medium clarity. A huge light tan head rises up to fill half the glass, great retention and lacing. Uglyish body hurts a great head here... The aroma is awesome, the beer is extremely malty with tons caramel, whopper malt, some oak, and a light red wine finish. This is outstanding except for the finish turns a bit fruity which doesn’t go with this... The taste is a let down compared to the fantastic nose, the maltyness is mostly gone replaced with more oak, a touch of sour and red wine. The finish is really flat with oak, alcohol, and a hint of hops. Really really disappointing. I can’t recommend this right now especially at the price. Heavy seas had a red wine barrel aged beer that was a little better than this.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Mikkeller big bad worse red wine edition. 375ml from Wlv... Pours a mostly opaque caramel toffee pour wit a semi-frothy head... Aroma is apple toffee in nature with a softer boozy fruitiness. Semi-sweet in nature... Flavors are pretty boozy with sweet dried fruit with caramel toffee in the background. Fair bit of heat towards the heat and well towards the finish. Medium bodied with active carbonation. Phenolic and semi-harsh in the finish. Subdued in the red wine compartment. 7/4/7/3/14

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.

Pours murky brown with tall yellow tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, butterscotch, light madeira or port barrel. Taste is big, boozy sweet with light resin bitter kick before a long sweet finish. Very warming. Body is rich and creamy smooth with soft carbonation.

brnandersen (2886) - 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.
