Redwine ale in both fragrance and flavor. Delicious and interesting beer, but do you not like red wine, then you should probably stay away from this. :-)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled@Monks Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Hazy deep amber colour with a mediumsized beige head. Aroma is spices, rather lots of fruityness, alcohol and some mild berryish notes. Flavour is red grapes, some alcohol, mild berries, rather winous and some slight spicy and yeasty notes. Rather balanced. As it warms up it gets some blueberries in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark red brown with a lasting light brown head. Aroma is sweet, heavy malty, dried fruit, red wine and vanilla. Flavor is rather sweet and medium bitter. The red wine is too dominant for my liking, but even so this is still a very good beer. 241210

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22-JAN-2011, bottle @Morten.
Huge off-white head on a brown/red boddy.
Barrels are evident. Could be brandy...? could be red wine...ah, the lable reads red wine.
I still prefer the 2009 version over the 2010, and the barrel aging has added wonderfull complexity to the brew.
And a slightly tart feeling that I remember in the regular version as well.
Fantastic brew. Thanks, Morten. I think I will save my on bottle a couple of years.

375 ml bottle. Clear amber body with a dense beige head. Aroma of malt, dry fruit, oak, red wine and some vanilla. Flavor is sweet malt, alcohol, oak, bitter, spices and a bit perfumed. Nice but I prefer the non-barrel version this time.

Thanks to anders37 for this beer.
It pours a dark, reddish brown color with a small head. The influence of the red wine barrel aging gives this beer a nice vinuous quality
