Bottle sampled @ Quintessence 2012. With some fine chocolate caviar served alongside. Aged on Italian red wine. Whiskey sized pour of a completely flat, not the slightest inkling of a head of a brandy looking liquid - colour me impressed. Smell is very sweet caramel mixed with dark sugar, liqueur, honey, dark fruits, wood. Taste is slick, bit thick, oily goodness, caramel, toff, liqueur, concentrated caramelized sugar, maple light dark fruits leading in a lightly woody and vinous finish. I liked this one even more than the already exceptional Baladin Xyauyù Barrel - even rounder, slicker - mighty fine stuff.
Bottle courtesy of Francesco, grazie mille! Shared with Franco and Sandy for New Years 2018. Clear deep amber color scant head. Nice aroma of raisins, dates, charred caramel. Taste has mixed dark fruit, rich vinous caramel. Delicious. scirtes (748) - POLAND - DEC 16, 2017
Lots of dark dried fruits in aroma, distinct sweetness. Syrupy, very sweet, complex beer. Slightly vinous aftertaste. daje (4548) - NORWAY - NOV 7, 2017
Bottle, december 3rd 2016. Dark brown body with no head. Wooden aroma with toffee, prunes, red wine. Chocolate and blue veined cheese taste, toffee, nuts, some oxidation, sweet malty finish. Slotvinskyy (69) - - SEP 14, 2017
пиво витримане в бочках з під червоного вина. воно досить солодке, але насправді має 12 алкоголю, який є не відчутним. червоне вино робиться із винограде без шкірки, на відміну від білого і це впливає відчутно на смак.
amber, red, heavy cloying sweetness, medium bitterness, Boutip (6620) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2017
Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy dirty brown color ale with no carbonation. Aroma of oxidized sweet caramelized malt is very nice. Taste is a nice mix of caramelized malt with some residual sugar, oxidation with a light watery finish. Body is full with no carbonation. Very nice level of complexity and oxidation is actually quite well balanced in the mix. The only thing that bothered me is the watery thin finish.

Chocolate, lighter bodied. Slight colour. sweet finish. Good barleywine, but less rich than the lune. More but still modest red wine. Korcz (3388) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 18, 2016

Beautiful ruby color with a small head. Aroma is incredibly rich, dark fruit, sweet caramel, vanilla and alcohol. Taste is very sweet, prunes, caramel, vanilla, brown sugar, toffee. Really good. Oakes (19332) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016
Dull light brown, no head. The aroma has a fair bit of chocolately, espresso character, with maybe a light brown sugar. There is light sugars, some tree fruits, and finishing in a bit of wood. There’s a fairly sherryish oxidiation in the finish, with a touch of alcohol lending a little bit of drynes. mcberko (19803) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2016
500mL bottle, pours a filthy dark orange with a small bubbly beige head. Aroma has some oxidation, with red wine barrels, light caramel and toasted bready notes. Flavour has pleasant sherry-like oxidation, caramel, vanilla and subtle red wine. Finishes with vanilla, subtle sherry and caramel. Complex, warming, and beautifully constructed. Fantastic.
