punkska101 (1893) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle from latest bottle release A: boozy, red wine, light wood, some plums, a touch of licorice and roastiness App: black with thick beige head and good lacing. T/p: rather full body with lightly acidic finish. Moderate high carbonation. O: a really great beer in it’s regular version only got better with this barrel aging. Nice booziness and texture is change a bit. A good thing that I have 3 other bottles left.

Bawelt (720) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 2, 2016
Nez juste affolant : très rond, très noble, beaucoup de fruits rouges (fraises, framboises, cerise, raisin bien-sûr). La bouche est bien plus sèche, très vineuse, assez noble avec un fond de levures. Attaque plutôt maltée puis le vin pète vraiment en bouche, la fin est assez âcre, la longueur est hyper agréable. Vraiment excellente.

Ferris (13810) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle - Vinous notes, dark fruit and some booze. Jet brown with a small beige head. Nice vinous dark notes, dark malts, bitterness and a long finish. Very vinous, some chocolate and a long finish. Glad it’s a small bottle.

GothGargoyle (2573) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
Deep brown with a light chocolate head. Aroma is molasses, oak, hint of mushroom. Full bodied, lightly creamy mouthfeel, complex on the palate with an umami finish. Taste is dry chocolate, mushroom, molasses, oak, hint of Pinot.

AlainG (2100) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2016
Une forte effervescence encourage la mousse à s’épanouir. Le liquide noir laisse le tout disparaître. Le vin est bien présent au travers des effluves boisées et grillées. Le goût en est aussi imprégné par la barrique. Un petit quelque chose de sauvageon civilisé dans les saveurs. . L’alcool, longtemps ensuite, se fait sentir tout le long du tube digestif. Des pointes acidulées côtoient d’autres particularités plutôt herbacées et des saveurs minérales qui agrémentent la dégustation. (1807-210416)

bytemesis (7600) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Bottle, 2013 thanks to Gikinji! Pours clear black, medium tan head, dissipates with good residual and lacing. Aroma is vinous with a strong note of licorice. Flavor is light plus sweet, red wine, oak tannin, roasted malts, black licorice. Medium body, vinous finish. Pretty solid beer.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
341 mL bottle in a trade with Slovak Sniper. All red wine. I would never guess what the base beer is. Something dark, but not roasty or hoppy. It’s very pleasant though.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2016
Bottle: Poured a clear dark color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light roasted malt and rustic notes with some oak and herbal notes is unique and interesting. Taste is a mix of light roasted notes with some dry rustic malt with light tart and oak with some herbal notes also noticeable. Body is full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Pretty unique set of flavours but very interesting and complex while maintaining a good drinkable balance.

Thanks Dominic. What a complex ale. The red wine barrel does nice things to this beer. Pours black. Aromas are vinous, cherry, Belgian yeast, anise, pine, spice. Similar flavours. Dry mouth feel. Excellent.
