slowrunner77 (6083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2010
this was the first of the 3 barrel aged black holes we tried (rum already sold out). all 3 pour black with brown edges, little head. this one had the most complex aroma and flavor of the 3. the coffee, vanilla, and honey from the beer still came through, especially roasted bittersweet coffee, and a slight tannic aspect from the wine. very nice, and better than i expected."

MrFecesious (1091) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a diseased blood reddish brown with minimal cap. Aroma is red wine, plum, wood, coffee, vanilla. Oh so much vanilla. And booze. Taste is tannic and sweet. Very dry finish from a coating, sticky mouthfeel. Pretty much a red wine drenched beer.

jbruner (2477) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a deep brownish black with minimal head. Aroma is much like the original with hints of earthy wood and dark fruit. Tannic taste but still very roasty, somehow the booze is better hidden. Good stuff.
