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.

brokensail (13676) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle shared by Phil. Black pour with a khaki head. Nice roasted malt notes up front along with tons of chocolate, red wine (pinot?), and raspberry jam. Hints of blackberry and coffee, too. Great jammy, seedy, raspberry notes to the flavor. A touch of blackberry, plenty of wine, some oak, and a bit of roast. Light chalk and char, dark chocolate, and a hint of coffee.

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.

JefVerstraete (2143) - Ghent, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle from Dranken Geers. Dark brown/black colour, beige foam. Medium carbonation. Sweet nose of caramel. Bitter roastiness of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Sweet nose of fruit candy, wine and potpourri. Strange combination. Not bad, but ok!

Couch0508 (119) - Flat rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2015
I am not a fan of this at all. I am not a huge wine drinker and this is just a horrible stout.

Kinz (3527) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Drake’s 10k. Black, good head. Aroma of pepsin, hoppy notes, coffee and chocolate. Flavor matches, with some dark fruit floating about. Some tannic bite, presumably from the roasted malts and wood treatment. Really nice.
