3.1
dambor (680) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2017
Pours black with a large head from a lot of carbonation. Aroma: red fruit, a bit tart and funky (probably from the wine barrel). Taste: chocolate coupled with funky red fruit. Ok, but a bot too funky for a porter.

nearbeer (5370) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2017
33 cl. 2016 vintage bottle indicates a 9.3% abv Imperial Stout, not a 10.3% Imperial Porter as currently listed here. Pour is deep ebony with a giant sponge of foam. Nose is merlot, oxidation and dry cocoa. Flavors of red wine, oxidation, chocolate and toasted oak. Medium plus body is smooth with low-medium carbonation and has a hot, boozy-dry slant.

crim (384) - POLAND - JUN 20, 2017
W aromacie jest dosyć podobne do kwasu theta, ciemne owoce, wiśnie na pierwszym planue, w tle gorzka czekolada i kawa W smaku juz gorzej, wino dodało dużo tanin, jest dosyć wytrawne, brakuje ciała, za bardzo wysycone, posmak jest dosyć długi, czekolady z wiśniami z jakiejś nalewki Ogolnie nie jest złe ale troche sie zawiodłem

4.2
MelvinKalksma (1516) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2017

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, red wine, dark fruit, chocolate, roasted malts and brettanomyces.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a medium brown/dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood, ree wine, dark fruit and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and brettanomyces.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Though the brettanomyces are definitely noticeable, the beer never gets sour. Perfect appearance and everything else is great. That red wine barrel it aged on is only slightly noticeable, but works amazing with an Imperial Stout and brettanomyces.

Very well done, the barrel add a vinous quality with some light astringency and acidity which is pleasant.
