chimpgibbon (533) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Fudge and balsamic and sharp wine tang almost pull this one off but not quite for me. The wine lingers too long and is astringent by the end. Nonetheless a respectable effort.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle from Kihoskh, provided by Skinnyviking for the Absalon tasting session ’13. Devil-black body, tan-coloured head, spotty lacing. Smell of red wine mixed with dark malts. Vinous flavour joined by malts and a touch of lactose. Tart and sweet ending. Quite well balanced. Partially pleasing (hotel room, Copenhagen 26.05.2013).

Clear deep dark brown, almost black with medium to thin brownish stable head. Lacing nicely. Aroma.. roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruits, red wine, wood Sweet sourish, decent bitterness. Quite dry. Its good quality, nicely balanced and very drinkable, thou red wine note for me is not very pleasant.

Beersiveknown (5053) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 15, 2013
Bottle at home from drinkstore
Dark brown black with fluffy tan head. Tart, sour cherries, tonic water, burnt toast, vanilla and touch of soy sauce. Full bodied, light carbonation, initial sour hit, dry roast barley, tart red fruit, slightly vegetal. Sourness takes some getting used to then manure/ rotting hay of Brett appears. V interesting and complex but the taste too abrasive to enjoy.

kraddel (6175) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 bottle by travlr, thnx dude ! big surprise when i opened my fridge :p pours black, white fast fading foam . wine is pretty dominant in the smell, as well as the oak, but not overkill . sour touch as well taste definetly has that sour-touch. dont think of a geuze, though! not realy thick. wine character is definetly there . i get a bit of that burnt malt in the aftertaste, if i realy focus on it .. its, ok, but not what i expect from a stout ... than again, this is aged on wine barreld, so if you like that, you shall like this one 3,7 rerate - draft @ hoppy loft pours black, good foam smell is bitter side, taste is rather sour , roasted malts , sour, good carbo, some coffee. good 3,5
