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.

Bottle. Pure oil coupled with a mighty brown head. Rich aroma of vanilla, chocolate and cream. Taste is insanely smooth, powerful coffee, mild chocolate. Aftertaste is slightly astringent with some bitter tones, a great way to balance the intial velvet force.

37.5cl bottle pours super dark with nice full tight mocha head. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, burnt malts and burnt on top chocolate brownie. The taste is rich, creamy and yummy goodness with notes from rich dark roasted malts, some burnt malts and a smooth decadent chocolate brownie sensation.

Bottle big thanks to Ibrew2or3- Dave is the man! Pours a pure black color with a medium brown head. A sweet port wine nose, huge dark sugary fruits, woody. The flavor is a heavy roast, some vinous tart elements, brown sugar, dry, very rich. Berries and warm alcohol. Excellent.

Norrebro Seven Bordeaux barrel. 375ml bottle thanks to Sean for sharing... Pours a semi-deep stouty pour, lesser intense reddish hues and then topped with a lighter beige head... Aroma is mostly stouty with cocoa chocolate with earthy woodiness with a light shade of vinousness without being too overbearing... Flavors have a similar influence with a thick semi-charred heavily focus. Thick and black without letting the wine barrel take hold. Full bodied tarred and deep bitter dark chocolate. Fair bitterness in the finish. Lovely and delicious. I’m not all that much into wine-barrel aged imperial stouts but this one was on a level of its own. 8/4/9/4/17
