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.

Bottle shared by esp0r with me, Simonsen & Edvard, september 28th 2013. Black body with a brown head. Vinous aroma with roasted malt, chocolate, oak. Slightly sour wine taste balanced with licorice, roasted malt, vanilla. Quite nice. Body feels a bit thinner than other versions.

DYCSoccer17 (3226) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 23, 2014
12.7 ounce bottle purchased at Ledger’s about 3 years ago or so. The aroma has a rather metallic character present. Light wine-like grape notes. Light roast. Not much else. Not even close to being as enjoyable as the bourbon version. Opaque black body with a medium light tan head present. Good lacing, too. Start is thin, and very vinous. Plenty of white wine character in this. Becomes a little chocolate and roasty in the middle. Finishes with a bit of an astringency. A little thin, but an interesting beer. Overpriced.

allmyvinyl (2173) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Keg at Brewdog bar, Edinburgh, shared with Ashton McCobb. Pours black with a small beige head. Aromas of light sourness, roast, chocolate and coffee. White wine a bit of a clash. Comes together better on the taste though, more chocolate and wine barrel. Fave of the three. (30/08/11)

Duft av kaffe, lalris, sjokolade og vanilje. Sort av farge. Lite skum, litt langs kant. Nydelig smak av sjokoladr, lakris, kaffe, vanilje. Frisk og god.

ketchepillar (1026) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 4, 2014
375mL bottle. Flavor goes on and on, lots of depth. Wine comes in the finish, followed by tons of chocolate, followed by dates. Thick, warming, silky mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

angel77 (521) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 11, 2013
Botella de 37.5 cl. En Cimeria 11-12-13. Increíble imperial stout. Color negro intenso con con espuma oscura no muy persistente. Aromas iniciales a especias (vainilla?) y madera de vino blanco con cierta acidez seguido de café y tostados. Sabores ligeramente ácidos al principio de la madera de vino blanco seguidos de café torrefacto y hervaceo amargo de lupulo que dura en boca unos minutos. Cuerpo fuerte sobre todo a medida que calienta aportando cada vez más aspectos de licor. Gran poder alcohólico, más acentuado al calentar. Cerveza alucinante con sabores contrapuestos (ácido de vino blanco y dulce especiado y torrefacto de imperial stout) perfectamente combinados. Gama alta Mikkeller sin duda, imprescindible repetir, muy imprescindible.

Lowenbrau (1729) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 11, 2013
375ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Shared with angel77. Pours black with some tan head. Some head retention and lacing. Sour, roasty, wood, coffee and liquor aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, silky texture. Taste is wood, roasty, raisins, coffee, some acid noets due to white whine. Silky palate from honey?. Amazingly well balanced and enjoyable. Alcohol well integrated, noticeable at the end.

Marheb (1748) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Beaucoup de chocolat et d’anis en arôme avec une finale tannique très sèche teinté de vin blanc. L’alcool est très bien camoufflé.

Bottle shared with Simonsen, edvard & daje
Black, big white head. Smells of white wine, oak, roast, coffee and malts. Heavy sweet, some wine acids, roast, coffe and oak. Moderate bitter. The wine acids works very well with the heavy roasty body. I like this one quite a bit
