50cl bouteille @ RBBWG III, thanks Domiens. Cuivrée, col beige collant au verre. Arôme offre une belle palette houblonnée, rétro-nasal sucre brun avec un côté vin rouge peu présent. Bouquet qui semblait être plus agréable sans le mûrissage. Palais est malté, caramel, léger vin rouge très fine pointe d’épice et léger herbacé. Le vin rouge n’ajoute pas vraiment grand chose en terme de complexité si ce n’est un coup au portefeuille. Fini offre une petite palette houblonnée usant d’une fine amertume.

375ml bottle. Pours dark bordeaux with a smooth white head. Aroma of caramely malts, vinous notes, wood, oak and berries. Taste is sweet, malty and vinous with notes of berries, wood and oak. Finish is stingy, sweetish, vinous and woody with notes of tart berries, caramel and oak. A bit unbalanced and too vinous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2011
Bottle that I took to the Saturday night hotel tasting after EBF. Pours a lightly hazed amber with orange highlights and a thin beige head. Not a lot of wine on the nose, but there is a faint hint of wood. Big sweet malt and toast. Loads of oxidized malt, toast. Hot alcohol, more oxidization. Slightly tannic wood and booze.

Pour ruby red, with a small fizzy carb. Aroma of dark fruits, malts, caramel, and oaky, red whine-bitterness. Taste is pretty sweet, with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, with a slight fizzy carb.

A big beer. Plenty of nice lacing in the glass of this brown colored beer. I am getting notes of vanilla and coconut. Expected some tannins and I am getting rum. Nothing else really comes through. Very smooth though. Not bad but I am glad that I got a sample and not a full glass.

brystmar (1204) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Malty and piney aromas initially, supported by barrels that remind me more of white wine than red. Tastes like a standard American Barleywine: caramel malts atop the boozy, hoppy base with a warming sensation after I swallow. Barrel character works much better than expected, especially from an inconsistent renegade like Mikkeller. Pleasantly surprised to report that I enjoyed this one.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber bruin body with an off white head. Red vinous wine notes, hints of caramel and dark fruit tones. Turpentine, very vinous and sweet boozy body. Really strong and boozy, so much that there seems little else to enjoy add the oxidation and well i was a bit let down.

At oakquinox 2013. Clear dark amber, thin head. Caramel, quite sweet, strong barrel character, wine barrel, and oak. Meh.
