COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: 527 bottles of 37,5 cl made.

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.

Thanks to Shane for Sharing: Pours black topped with dark brown head. Nose is boozy with an interesting roasty/charred character and red wine whispers in the tail. Flavors were clean, malty with slight roast, pretty evident hop bitterness, but not really much wine influence.

Tasting with Shaun Hill at Three Penny Taproom - Poured a very dark black/brown in color with an nice ruby red hue where it thins out at the edge. Little or not head, but what of it there was produced some small lacing on the glass. Aroma was overpowering with oak and vanilla. The Bordeaux from the aging barrel really dominates the flavor profile and significantly masks the flavor of the Imperial stout underneath. Worth drinking, of course, I am a bit disappointed; particularly since the other ratings here lead me to believe/expect better...

375 mL Bottle from Secret Santa and shared with Shawn: Pitch black with an oily appearance but once you swirl the beer, tiny tight bubbles do appear, quite viscous looking. The aroma is an outstanding blend of barrel influence and base Imperial Stout. Charred oak, slight winey vinous esters along with chocolate, roast, molasses, tobacco, leather, fig and herbal hops vapours. The taste did not disappoint and followed suit with a big rich malty and dark fruit overtone with moderate ashy smoke, snappy molasses kick and some spicy hop tones before the woody and moderately alcoholic finish. The mouth feel displays an oily character along with some oatmeal creaminess, nicely warming and a tad ashy.

OUTSTANDING and far exceeded my expections, I would love to try this with a few years in age on the bottle. Think BA Expedition but with a slight winey character and you get the idea, this should be near the top of any stouties wish list.

Bottled (thanks brunnsbe!). Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is mild wine, some coffee as well as some slight alcoholic notes. Rather wooden as well. Flavour is quite much the same with very big time coffee and vanilla towards the finish and aftertaste. A bit sweet, otherwise a really nicely balanced barrel aged brew.
