COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Bottle, thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Pours a dark brown color, with minimal head. Wonderful aroma of dark chocolate, raisins, nice wine, oak, nuts, sherry. Pretty pleasant. Medium to bigger body. Minimal carbonation. Mild slick, leading to a mild dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, though more dry on the end. Mild bitterness, and a pleasant light alcohol warmth pushing the vinous flavors in the aftertaste. A little carbonation wouldn’t have hurt, but otherwise, this is pretty tasty one to sip a small bit of. Seems like it aged alright.

dogbomb (1253) - ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle. 2202/9987. Bottled: 20/06/12. Pours dark brown and watery. No head at all. Cant even muster one up. Nose is toffee, a slight whisky, Soy sauce. In the mouth it’s slick, a gives initial melted toffee flavours, like biting into a liquier. It’s surprisingly subtle. There’s a little saltiness, some sweetness and caramel qualities. You CAN pick out some of that red wine and oak from the beer. Vanilla. A slight whisky. This is incredible. Not even sure this counts as "beer" any more.

375ml bottle, #6298. Pours a deep brown, with almost no head. Complex, mature aroma, caramel, chocolate, wood, vanilla, earth, toffee. Semi-sweet, full bodied, mid bitterness, low CO2. Complex, mellow taste, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, wood, dark raspberry fruit, cinnamon, licorice, faint smoke. Quite well balanced, slightly over the hill, but still very enjoyable.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - NOV 17, 2015
Scuro color marrone, schiuma poco persistente. Pungente, nocciolata, maltosa e fruttata; gusto dolciastro, vinoso e meno rotondo dell’atteso, corpo medio, effervescenza debole.

3.6
patricks110 (2653) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 16, 2015
Cellared 3 years. Pours a dark, murky and muddy burgundy brown with a thin few bubble thick head. Oily alcohol legs on the glass, no carb. The nose is rich and sweet with a very earth based malt aroma. Wood, light fruity notes, vanilla, espresso bean and richly roasted malts. The flavour is much lighter and silky smooth with a moderate alcohol presence on the finish. Vanilla and espresso bean are very subtle with a light roasted malt bitterness. Nicely done.

3.9
martjoobolut (5094) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice sweet and boozy brew with vinous notes.
