fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen, bb 2016
Black color with small beige creamy head. Nice aroma, roasted malt, vinous; but also some chemicals, glue, cardboard; very light vanilla. Good body structure; the mouthfeel is lean and quite dry; roasted malt flavor, with a bit too much acidity, wine character, some astringency, tannins, and correct bitterness.
Good.

ComradeK (1028) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a large beige head, which lasts very well and leaves good lacing. Slightly sweet, oaky red wine dominates the aroma, with some faint roasty malt playing a minor supporting role. Mild spicy hops up front lead into fruity and slightly tannic red wine. This blends with mild cocoa and coffee in the mid-palate, with an oaky red wine finish. This is far too dominated by the red wine, which is the main feature of both the aroma and the flavour, leaving very little space for the beer itself. Tone down the wine a little and it would probably be quite enjoyable, but as it is it doesn’t grab me.

DuffMan (6743) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Bottle shared at RBAG 2013. Very dark brown, pretty murky, with a light brown head that laces sparingly. aroma is distinctly bretty with rich roast and light sour cherries. The palate delivers funky sour edges to a solid lovely stout base. Really tasty. as an aside, I find it interesting that at 8.5% this beer is listed as a stout, whereas the Fort Garry Kona Imperial stout weighs in at a whimpy 6.5% yet is designated "imperial". Not that it matters, but it seems pretty arbitrary.

pintbypint (2603) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
From the bottle, at RBAG 2013 in Medicine Hat. Pours out a dark brown-red. Thin ring of foam in the glass and good looking spotty lacing left behind. Nose has dark caramel, chocolate and some sourness. In the mouth some dark malt/chocolate comes out, red wine, sourness. Cocoa and roast and earth in the finish with some toasty notes, a bit of liquorice. Interesting concept and quite well done.

HopRedHead (354) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends. Pours black with a short white head and 2mm of lingering lacing. Big brett, zest, plum and grape aroma. Taste is big dark fruits, nice sourness and lots of red wine vinous flavours: plum, grapes and black currant. Lingering sourness, light bitterness. Very refreshing for a dark beer.
