Tap @ the brewpub.
Pours deep red with a small, creamy, beige head. Stays for a very long time. Aroma is roasted, chocolate, red wine, grapes, oak. Low carbonation, silky creamy mouthfeel. Still feels rather light actually. Sweet flavour, creamy milky chocolate, softly roasted, vinious, some fruity grapes-ish feel. Long, nice roasted finish with light oak and a slight brett-y note to it. Nice!

Draft. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, and oak. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt, and chocolate as well as lighter notes of wood. The mouthfeel is very soft due to low carbonation. The body seems lighter than in the non barrel aged version.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Nørrebro’s 5 year anniversary. An almost black pour leaves a small, diminishing tan head. Chocolate, coffee, notes of dried fruits, sugar and an oaky touch in the aroma. The flavor has some vanilla in addition to the chocolate, coffee, sugary sweetness and hops that are doing most of the work. Lasting finish with sweetness and some vanilla. Full-bodied and al¬most sticky sweet. A really nice one, but I think I prefer the non-wooded version. (080911)
