Beczka w tym piwie zmienia wszystko na plus. Słodkie, wyklejające, zero nut perfumowanych, które mi przeszkadzały w podstawowej wersji. Sporo suszonych owoców, nuty winno-taniczne gdzieś tam w tle, ale akurat w tym wypadku bez szału - wprowadzają lekko kwaskowaty charakter. Naprawdę solidna pozycja.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Wyśmienite piwo, pełne nut fig, suszonych owoców, melasy, wiśni, z cierpko-kwaskowatą beczką po czerwonym winie. DroolYeast (1522) - Odder, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2016 2011 bottle, bottleshare @ Mikkeller Aarhus. Aroma of redwine, caramel, sweet booze, oak. Clear amber colour with off-white head, not lasting. Medium bitter, light+ sweet, tiny notes of some sourness. Full body, oily feel, alcohol and red wine finish. oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2015
Pours a dark golden brown with small fizzy head. Aromas of wood, malts, and some beautiful wine notes. Flavors of malty hoppy barleywine with mellow wine. Alengrin (5438) - BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2015
Two year old bottle at Kulminator. Moussy, lacing, pale greyish white head, stable, residing over a hazy coppery amber beer with brownish hue, darker than the regular version. Strong and pleasant aroma, oxidized malts but not overpowering the other odours of cranberry, sherry, red wine, wet wood, honey, caramel, vanilla-like tannins, chocolate sauce, marmelade, venison, white pepper. Candied cherry sweetness in onset, figs, light cranberry tartness, soft carbo, honeyish, big caramelly malt sweetness, vinous and oily mouthfeel, drying finish with wood drought and tannins (very strong), warming whisky-like alcohol, soft hop bitterishness deep down, and an unmistakable red wine flavour afterwards. The tart, drying effect of the red wine barrels has brought considerable balance to an otherwise perhaps overly sweet barley wine.

375ml bottle from the Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Hazy red-brown in colour with a thin but lasting tan head, light lacing. The aroma is of alcohol, wood, lots of caramel, lots of malt, red grapes. The flavour is of alcohol first, lots of wood and earth, grapes and of course wine. Warming mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, warming, woody. The barrel took away from the regular beer. Hightly alcoholic. andrewje41 (4009) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2015
375 mL bottle, in which the label sold me right away. Pours a dark amber color with a swirling fizz head. Caramel, brown sugar, delicous maple like aroma. Flavor is very maple, hints of the wine very late in the palate. Smooth and delicious barleywine. Loved it. kevinator (2268) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2015
This gets points for uniqueness. Aroma and flavor of bready malt, caramelized sugar, hops, oak and red wine tartness. Color was deep brown with a red tint. Full palate and a slightly dry finish. SeniorZozo (1862) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 15, 2015
Pours a red amber colour with a large, lacing head. Malty fudge aroma with notes of dried fruit, wood and marzipan. Flavour is fudge, red berries, red wine and wood. Bitter finish. Well balanced and warming. jspronck (159) - BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2015
Reddish amber color with beige head. Fruity, malty aromas with dried fruit, plum, wood, caramel, red wine. In mouth, fruit, red wine, wood, warm alcohol finish. Full body, with a touch of sweetness. Can feel the ABV but not overwhelmingly so. Very nice.
