The beer is an 11.5% Imperial Brown Ale which we have aged in amazing Spanish sweet red barrels from Malaga. Stewart Bowman, our Head Brewer, devised an Imperial Brown Ale designed to perfectly complement the wine flavours and extract maximum depth and character from the giant barrels. We also felt the Imperial Brown Ale was ideally suited to be barrel aged and as well as the infusion of the Malaga wine character will also benefit added complexity and maturity from the time in oak.

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
Pours a deep, murky brown with a thick brown head. Aroma is dried fruits, oak, chocolate, subtle red wine nuances. Flavour is sweet and replicates the nose - lots of dried fruit, toast. Finish is sweet, tart, and roasted. So good.

berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - APR 12, 2013
Bottle (33cl). Very dark brown colour. Inch-thick beige head, good retention, leaves a wavy lace pattern. Very sweet malty aroma with raisins, molasses, oaked red wine, sherry, cream, coffee, cola. Full body, flat carbonation. Sweet taste, balanced by a notable, slightly vinegary, acidity and a mild bitterness. Extremely long bitter-sweet aftertaste.

VertBaconStrips (2361) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - APR 4, 2013
Tanks Brad! Murky brown, long lasting light brown compact head. Interesting aroma - cherries, some subdued sweetness, brown sugar, some sort of version of vanilla ice cream, blood orange, Swedish berry candies. Taste is also very interesting - different by a lot. Hints of smoke, pepper, plum, brown sugar, hints of something vinous, pretty good. Smooth drinking!

bergstaden (2621) - Rros, NORWAY - APR 10, 2013
Black with brown head - Sweet malt and wineus aroma - very good sweet malt body with dark fruits, some wine notes - Finish is lingering sweet dark fruits and malt with some nice alcohol heat in the back - very good and easy to enjoy on a cold winter night

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2013
Dark brown body with a thick creamy film floating on top. Wow this smells good! Heavy malty aroma, lots of fruit, soya sauce, I do hit wine. Taste is the same but add a shit load of burnt sugar. Now when warm red wine is huge but has no acidity. An odd bitterness surrounds this beer. This was a strangely good beer.

Marheb (5291) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 12, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 Un liquide brun rougeatre magnifique surmont dune tete gnratrice de dentelle comme rarement jai vu. Un nez de coulis de raisins hyper malt, vraiment similaire la raison dextra, a augure franchement bien. En bouche cest une rondeur parfaite qui se dverse, tout le long de la dguste javais peine y croire. Chocolat, raisins, malts foncs se laissent complter par le baril de vin de faon surprenante. Dans la catgorie intressante ide sur papier mais est-ce que a marche?", le gagnant est cest loin davoir toujours ete le cas.

DuffMan (9747) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2013
Bottle. Murky nut brown, brief low tan head. Sweet, rich, malty aroma with lots of Demerara sugar, brown bread, molasses. The palate delivers thick malty richness, reflecting the nose but with deeper elements of figs, raisins, dark fruits. The end brings a surprising hoppy bitter twist. God I love rich malty beers!
