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 på portvins fade fra vores venner i Niepoort. Resultatet er en meget fyldig øl, præget af portvinens sødme. Både duft og smag er domineret af druer, portvin, kaffe, chokolade og ristet lakrids. Kroppen opleves silkeblød, medium sød, og der følger en varm, lang eftersmag.

English: Seven Niepoort Barrel is a very rich imperial stout, brewed in October 2008 by 7 of the best brewers in Denmark by a pooling of their individual recipes for the beer. After primary fermentation, this fraction of the brew was racked into a port wine barrel from our friends at Niepoort. After 7 (!) months in the barrel, the beer is intensely full bodied, with rich port like sweetness. The aroma and flavour is dominated by ripe grapes, port, coffee, chocolate and liquorice roast characters. Silky smooth and full palate with a medium sweet, warming and long aftertaste.

Opaque black beer, short lived dark chocolate coloured head. Soft palate. Rich dark malt with unsweet dark chocolate and repressed dark fruits. I know Port Wine pretty well and Niepoort Ports tend to have some Sherry characteristics, so no big surprise to find some Sherry character from the barrel. As the beer warms up the nose opens up and reveals dark chocolate and the flavours integrate more. Minerals in the finish.

Pours completely black with no head. Aroma is dark berries, i especially get black currants along with figs, cocoa beans, fruity coffee, sweet port notes, vanilla, oatmeal, brown sugar and I feel the molasses sweetness. Taste is figs, vanilla, sweet port notes, savery, caramel, coffe, oatmeal thickness, dark dried fruits, molasses and full body! Very good "take your time" imperial stout.

375mL with a super dong whale thanks to rasmusott. Pours fairly ink with ruby highlights with a thin, red Martian foam. Fruity fresh nose with strawberry and raspberry dark chocolate. Smoked dark chocolate and mild saltwater with kalamata olive brine. Very sharp and savory. Taste is super rich and oily, massive silky palate. Quite dry and salty with big umami and roasty savoriness. Superlative silky palate. I love the savory complex nose of this bad boy. Taste is sharp and savory with big dark chocolate bitterness. Yum yum yum. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2012 37.5 cL bottle, courtesy of blomster. Thanks, Christer! Pours a deep, dark chocolate-brown color with a slight medium-brown head with excellent lacing. Layers of bitter chocolate, cocoa, and dried red fruits; restrained sweetness and nicely bitter. Full bodied with light carbonation. Loads of viscous dried fruits, dark chocolate, and a vinous alcohol warmth that never seems other than perfectly integrated; notes of caramel and touches of oxidation, but nothing beyond a hint of paper and dried caramel. Delicious. Long-lasting finish of caramel, dates, and bitter chocolate; lightly warming.

Dark brown. Sticky body. Raw, blank wood, grapes and a soft malty base. Smooth body, but sharp tones as well. Very long aftertaste. Nice brew! (375ml bottle, at dEnk house tasting)

Rating #2600. Pours black with a thin dark chocolate/reddish head. Aroma of booze, raisin, sugary malt, vanilla, nougat, and chocolate. Flavor is more roast and chocolate as opposed to the overbearing sweetness in the aroma (nevertheless it still is quite a sweet beer especially in the aftertaste). Unfortunately seems as though the coffee has faded by this point. Definite grapey/winy texture to the palate and some of the sweetness is not just the malt and booze but the fruits of the wine barrel. Overall, quite a tasty, unique beer and it seems to have held up well over time. 7/4/8/4/15 [3.8/5]

old rating: Black color with good beige head. Roasted chocolate aroma. Full-bodied, hoppy imperial stout that sticks to the cleft.

(bottle shared by nbutler!) Pours dark brown with a garnet hue and a soapy tan head. Aroma had chocolate, some vinous notes, port/raisin. Taste is sweet with a touch of bitterness. Full bodied and slick. Bitter finish. Pretty good beer. Thanks Nick, I’d been wanting to try this one for a while.
