Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, - DEC 11, 2011
On keg at the BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh. A black beer with a decent light tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate and dark malts with coffee, oak and alcohol also. Flavour is a little sweet with lingering bitter chocolate and cacao nibs. Mild carbonation. Nice but not my favourite version.

Aroma is thick with chocolate and coffee, with just a faint hint of its time in the wine barrels. However the bitterness from the wine really cuts through the beer , making it dangerously drinkable.

A- a dark viscous pour that traps light. A tight, very mild deep tan head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. S- barrel wood and chocolate are no strangers. Vanilla, and coffee are pungent and do bring a little sting. Rich, wet clay soil. Vegetal notes of tobacco and dirty corn husk. White wine does not make a strong showing here but makes up for it in the taste. Some butter and grapes, but nothing overwhelming. M- heavy oily and syrupy body. Languid carb. T- packs more of a punch where the aromas come off as more refined. Sharp vanilla and chocolate to start with sour wood and the white grape (sauvignon blanc?) tannins to follow. Hops, grass and a underlying lime citrus, tart apple and perhaps white peach weave their way throughout. Graham crackers and sour dough at re end with more muddled citrus and minerals. Solid.

"this one was a little weird. less influence from the barrels...some mellowing from the oak, but the astingency, however slight, took away from the nose, and especially the flavor of the beer. again, super smooth at 13%, but i’d pass on this one in favor of most of the others."

AmEricanbrew (6008) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Expensive bottle@ trailer. Black body with tan head. Nice chocolate malt, honey, light coffee aromas with some fruity wine barrel. Full bodied with average carbonation. Semi sweet chocolate flavors with dark roast malt, coffee, and a fruity wine barrel tartness____roasty drying finish----not super drinkable, not bad either.

jbruner (2502) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a dark brownish black with minimal head or lacing. Aroma is dark roasts with overlying oak and fruity tannins. Taste is more towards chocolate and oak with a touch of sourness. Would like to try this again.

Jeg er helt ærligt ikke helt sikker på hvad jeg mene om denne øl. Det er tydeligt en kraftig øl, med meget kraftige brændte noter - næsten for kraftige! Hvidvinstønden er tydelig, men jeg er i tvivl om det fornuftige i brugen. Ikke den bedste Black Hole jeg har smagt.
