Salmoniform (469) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Poured from bottle to snifter. Opaque hue with brown creamy head that lingered. Aroma is red wine, lactic, molasses, grassy, chocolate. Mouthfeel is nice with a full body and sharp carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a salty sour following and dry slightly astringent finish. Overall this is a decent brew.

AirForceHops (2974) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle provide by rightcross55, another nice brew. Fluffy white head sitting on top of a pitch black liquid. Aroma is mostly port wine with a trace of chocolate.

Flavor is vinous red grapes through out the sip with a light oak barrel and blackberry hint toward the backend. Hint of cherry. The body is medium leaning on lighter. Has a black berry / raspberry jam type texture. Damn this reminds me of another imperial stout that has a jammy quality. Nice!

jzzbassman (1507) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Draught at Falling Rock. Pours almost black with a slight foamy head. This is like dessert wine and dark chocolate all at once! Lovely fruit and chocolate combo that doesn’t taste artificial or overly sweet or sour. The fruit component to this is just so perfectly composed and balanced. Terrific variant.

bytemesis (3017) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Tap. Pours opaque black, medium brown head, creamy, lasts forever, great lacing. Aroma is heavy roasty, chocolate, a bit vinous. Flavor is light sweet, light tart, light plus bitter, very roasty, cocoa, oak tannins, ruby port. Lingering tartness. Fullish body

GreatDane1632 (312) - Louisiana, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Rated from notes taken on 24 May and 1 Jun 2014 -- Of all the Noir’s I have tasted this "feels" the lightest. Easily the most delicate, oaky with the red wine flavors, and a strong earthy stout throughout.

Beachmaster (95) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 14, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours an inky black, with a big tan head that slowly fades, leaving good lacing. Nose is coffee, dark roast malt, with a hint of red wine. Taste is coffee and red wine, with many complex layers that keep unfolding. The finish is long, witha creamy mouthfeel and a pronounced red wine note at the end. Delicious.

dfinney23 (1582) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Very active, building a thick head even with a gentle pour. Coffee and dry red wine, even somewhat tannic. Similar feel to a sour but with a very different taste.

Crispy34 (356) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Draft. Aroma is coffee darkness with some wine. Appearance black with plenty of tan head. Taste is dark malt with some dark fruit that goes into some wine flavors. Palate is dark, with a white wine feel. Overall, an interesting beer. Too dark with the wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
