750 ml bottle @ Kick. Slightly unclear amber body with a small off-white head. Lovely aroma with dry fruit, malt, light wood and rather vinous. Flavor is much the same as the aroma, dry fruit, smooth malt, wood, not much bitterness and vinous alcoholic. Complex and very nice. Fine body and long aftertaste. Much enjoyable.

Nocturne (737) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
750ml bottle. Murky red shade. Nice head that sticks around. Aroma of sweet grains and a really nice evocation of red wine. Taste is similar plus jam-like, stewed fruits as well. Sweet but not overbearingly so. A little heavy to work through at times, but seems easy drinking at others. Although I’ve not had the regular I can say that the BA is very nice.

Zymurgeist2 (934) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 16, 2014
From bottle to glass. Aromas of rich, think caramel whilst slogging thru wet bogs. Pours a deep amber-copper with off white head that lingers. Taste is viscous caramel and slight floral hops. Not much off the barrel. Slight barn and earth as is warmed. Slight alcohol warmth.

RumRunner101 (732) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
Deep amber pour. Big sweet and malty nose. Body is sweet with caramelized malts, burnt sugars, and a boozy finish.

Grzesiek79 (3109) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Zawiniete w papier, a butelka mimo to posiada etykiete. Elegancja i limitowana ilosc butelek. Super aromat sliwkowo truflowo winny. Nieco whisky wyczuwalo sie w smaku, karmelowe, powidla sliwkowe z nuta wanilli i odrobina cukru. A koncowka przyjemnie rozgrzewajaca i dluga no i wytrawno winna. Beczki po winie Bordeaux oddaly swoje. Super tresciwe ciemno brazowe piwo. Szkoda tylko ze piana zbyt dlugo sie nie trzymala. Ale mimo to polecam

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle, pours red/brown, nose red wine but then again this is a red wine BA beer so what do you expect. Soft at first, slightly fruity then it gets some wood and chewy. A bit of caramel on the finish as well,nice, not great.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle 750 ml at home, wrapped in paper, corked and caged. Into a tulip. ABV 9% Deep red ruby colour, clear body, with one finger of tan head on top,thin, with average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma is mildly vinus, with black and red grapes, sweet, with caramel and toasted malts. Nice taste, sweet with caramel and grapes, the grapes offering just a touch of sourness and balancing the overall sweetness a bit. Again quite vinus taste, with some toasted malts to accompany it. The alcohol is very well hidden. Medium body, nice carbonation and a bit tart on the palate. Very good, I enjoyed it.
