Bottle 33 cl. 9,3% in my version. Pours an opaque jet black with a dense, light brown head. Lovely red wine aroma. Medium body, excessive carbonation, harsh roast, slightly woody. Lovely aroma but the rest is really rough. 140318 MarcoDL (5579) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2018
Bottle. Aroma of red wine, oak, tannine, chocolate and brett. Taste has lots of red wine, chocolate, vanilla, oak, soft tannine, malt and mild funk. Very nice, I like this wine forward stuff. GlasgowTAD (2015) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 24, 2017

Bottle @ tasting shared by Dutchdrebus. Opaque black color, huge foamy a bit rough and fizzy large bubbled beige / tan head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, oak, something a bit sourish or tart. Hmm not too promising. Taste malts, red wine, wood, light tart, tart dry tannin bitter finish. Fits the beer quite well. I quite like it, although a full bottle would be much perhaps.

Bottle @ joes. Brown to black with a large light brown head. Smells sourish, dusty, moldy. Tastes dusty, moldy, weird, sourish, coffee. Medium body, medium carbo. tanel025 (288) - ESTONIA - OCT 12, 2017
Black beer with lots of thick brown head. Aroma is mostly wine. Taste is sour, grapes, wine, roasted malt, lots of coffee, alcohol. Would be very good beer without this wine barrel aging. Mix of 2 different drinks doesn't balance in this case. Confusing and hard to drink. Would like to try this porter without wine barrel. ansalon (4324) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2017
Pours black with a large tan head that slowly settles. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, oak, red wine, barrel character. Taste is chocolatey and roasted with fruity and nutty notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and somewhat dry. Marduk (8998) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 23, 2017
330ml bottle. Pitch black color. Medium plus size, thick brown head, stays. Roast, red wine, sour, oak in aroma. Red wine, tannins, rotten blueberries, tannins, oak in taste. Red wine and tannins in aftertaste. Is this red wine mixed with some random stout? Weird stuff. Kingi (684) - - SEP 15, 2017
This is not bad, but the merlot barreling does not fit with the porter here. Prolly too much wine notes. A mix of notes with no balance.
