Danish: En meget fyldig Russian Imperial Stout på 12% alk. Den er brygget i oktober 2008 af 7 af de bedste bryggere i Danmark, som en blanding af de 7 bryggeres egne opskrifter af øllen. Efter gæring har denne øl lagret 7 måneder i Bordeaux fade af amerikansk eg. Resultatet er en intens, kompleks krop og en aroma, hvor vanille, eg og ristede malte er gennemtrængende. Smagen er stor, tør og blød med solid bitterhed og en lang, ristet eftersmag med vanille og egesødme.

English: Seven Bordeaux Barrel is a very rich Russian Imperial Stout, brewed in October 2008 by 7 of the best brewers in Denmark as a pooling of their individual recipes for the beer. After primary fermentation, this fraction of the brew was racked into an American oak barrel from a Bordeaux winery. After 7 (!) months in the barrel, the beer is intensely complex, full bodied with protruding vanilla, oaky and roasted aromas and flavours. Bitter, dry and smooth on the palate with a long vanilla aftertaste.

The history of seven brewers making there recipies and dividing it up is great - and must somehow be a totaly disaster - but its not. Its actually works out quite good and the result is nice. Thumps up for brewers who are trying to do something. We like. The pour is pitch black with a thin brown head. The aroma bare clearly strong notes from the barrels which in some sense intensify the alcohol notes. It has a mild sweetness and there is english salmiak laquirice, nuts, coffee, wet ryebread and burned wood. The taste is very round with a bitter and hoppy finish. I taste vanilla, dry figs, roasted nuts and malt and finaly some coffee. The palate is crazy and has a mouthfeel that is crazy like hell. Its creamy with huge lacings. yummi

Christian (11784) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2009 Black with a small tan head. Strong roasted aroma with dark chocolate, licorice and burned malt. A little boozy, but also with lots of noice red wine and wood. Dry and roasted flavour, lots of dark chocolate, with vanilla notes and quite a bit of wine barrel oak tannins making it quite drinkable.

pitch black, nice smooth lacing dark brown head. aroma is dark roasted, very well blend of licorice, dark fruits, dark malts, coffee, borwn sugar, and lots of other stuff. this one a bit more vineoous and balanced than the nieport. flavor is roasted stuff, licorice, malts, plums, ends roasted and ashy. long and fantastic aftertaste. when i sat there a minute after having drinked a sip, i realized that the aftertasate right now was stronger and fuller than most mainstream stouts taste when being drunk. amazing.
