Wine Barrel Noir is our imperial oatmeal stout aged in freshly dumped red wine barrels. Coffee and chocolate notes in the beer are complimented by tart berry flavors and oak we derive from the wine barrels.

Pitch black with a ruddy thin head. Light silky mouth feel. Sour red wine up front with mellow lingering hops. A really good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Damico (3003) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Pours thick dark black with a bright cinnamon hued caramel head. The aroma brings delicious roasted cacao. Flavor brings the tart berry so sweet and delicious from the wine barrel as described which overshadow, but in a good way, the roasted chocolate notes. One of the best beers I have had from this brewery hands down!

Black pour, foamy brown head. Aroma of chocolate, very sweet cherry, and booze. Flavor is chocolate, cherry, grapes, red wine and cocoa. Interesting but way too sweet.

12oz bottle shared by Ryan. Big steady beige head. Chunky brown black body. Red wine and roast malt give it a red berry taste. An excellent Imperial Stout. The barrel really works well here, great final product.

Hoprider (236) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2015
Pours black with a dense, light brown head. The nose is very interesting. Its like a bourgogne on steroids; so big raspberry, a little strawberry jam and lots of licorice. Thinking about it it’s really more of a new world pinot than a french one. Big siruppy licoricy pinot. Liking the nose.. The taste is more mineral and slightly more bitter. As it warms it gets sweeter, richer. A slight oxidized sensation that kind of suits the beer. Like it lots.

Thanks to mr. Hoprider for swinging this my Way. Aroma is pretty subdued on the nose, but sure is a bang on the palate. Red Wine, red grapes, dark berries, slight coffee, chocolate, oatmeal. All that goodness you want from a stout. Tastet is slightly sweet up front, with a heavy dose of roasted bitterness from the middle and out. Medium bodied, with pricking and semi flat carbonation. I like this, but Think the Apple brandy treatment was better.

Bottle from cloaked-thanks! Dark brown with some reddish edges. Nose is tart black and red berries, some dark chocolate, light coffee. High carbonation. Dark chocolate cherries, bakers cocoa, slightly dusty, some blackberry. Interesting and complex beer and probably my favorite barrel treatment of this beer that I’ve had.
