COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: 1092 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 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.

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.

brokensail (15728) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 11, 2012
The beer is black in color with a small tan head. A strong roasted malt aroma comes through along with a bit of coffee and bitter dark chocolate. The port offers a nice but subtle fruit character in the background. It’s somewhat boozy and definitely a touch oxidized. The beer doesn’t taste quite as boozy as it smells, but still shows the 12% ABV. Nice port flavor and some dark fruits along with a very heavy roast and some coffee. A strong oak flavor with a bit of a tannic feel to it. Only moderately sweet with notes of caramel, molasses, and toffee.

Bottle generously shared by nbutler11 @ Woodshed 1.0! Never really thought I’d get a chance to try any from this series and so glad I had the opportunity. Dark mahogany pour with a chestnut edge and small latte head. Aroma of cocoa, char, molasses, roasted coffee, and dark fruit. Lots of brownie, fudge, coffee and ash, along with a slight wine finish. Not a lot of vanilla or oak...getting more toasted malt than anything. Creamy even after the aging. The ABV is invisible. Nicely done but think this one would have been better fresh.

Thanks oh6gdx! Deep black color, small brown head. Roasted malts, sweet caramel, cocoa and tar in the aroma. Full-bodied. Licorice, cocoa, light molasses and dark fruits. Lingering toastyness in the aftertaste. Balanced and smooth although can’t trace much of portwine here. Probably ageing (3 years) has cut the sweetness here.

roblove (30) - SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2011
Black with a chocolaty brown head. In the nose, coffee, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, toffee, oaky, raisins, figs, vanilla, alcohol. Taste, dark bitter chocolate with a well balanced smoothness, blueberries, dark berries, notes of cherries, and a great long finish of red apples and cream.

37.5cl bottle pours super dark and infrared around the edges with nice full mocha head. The aroma is just plain old yummy with molasses, very dark roasted malts, chocolate brownies, dark chocolate candy bar, black strap molasses and a bit of dark cherries. The taste is equally pleasing with both chewy and yummy and velvety smooth notes in the form of dark roasted malts, burnt malts, chocolate, vanilla, a mild red wine note and smooth sweet caramel covered wood. This is just plain yummy!
