TBone (17680) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2017
Bottled 330ml (Etre-Gourmet, vintage 2016)
Dark brown colour, small beige head. Sweet toffee, red wine, some earthyness, touch of alcohol in the nose. Full-bodied. Liquerish palate. Sweet with toffee, vanilla, wood, maltyness. Robust and warming although hides 12% reasonably well. Nice sipper.

LukaszK (73) - Wrocław, POLAND - JUL 31, 2017
0,33 bottle, refrigerated, served in glass at Browar 100 Mostów, Wroclaw. Appearance: dark, hazy red, with little head, full bodied. Aroma: lots of red fruit notes, red wine, porto, oak, roasted bread. Taste: sweet, a little dry, tanned notes from barrel, resembles a well aged red wine, but then it goes deeply into barley wine tastes - sweet, heavy, full bodied, very intensive, low carbonation, with dried fruits, like raisins or peaches. In the back, some of vanillas. My first approach was lost chance, but the second one - it is a masterpiece of barley wines aged in wine oaks. Definitely one to try.

bjorn77 (493) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 29, 2017
Aromat: slodki, zawiesisty, bardzo intensywny. Rodzynki, slodkie winogrona, daktyle, suszone sliwki, karmel. Wyglad: ciemna miedz, wpadajaca w kolor brunatny, piana mala, biala, drobnopecherzykowa, po chwili i tak zanika prawie cala. Smak: winne i stosunkowo malo slodkie jak na styl. Karmel, suszone owoce, rodzynki, figi, daktyle, slodycz owocowa, sporo goryczy na finiszu i w posmaku, takiej od suszonych owoców i od chmielu. Bardzo taniczne, beczka daje mocne drzewne akcenty, powodujac sciaganie na jezyku, oprócz tego dosyc silne beczkowe akcenty od czerwonego wina i porto, dajace piwu przyjemna cierpkosc. Przyjemne, dobrze ulozone piwo, alkohol ukryty, bardzo przyjemna winna cierpkosc, dajaca dobry balans dla slodyczy. Zalegajaca goryczka ciut przeszkadza, cialo tez nie imponuje zbytnio, ale poza tym to calkiem dobre piwo. 9/4/7/3/14

Aroma: roasted dark malts, nuts, red wine, tanines. Appearance: reddish color and no head. Taste: warming alcohol, red wine, tanines, malty, roasted caramel, semi-dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation. Overall: really good BW, red wine barrels made a great job.

pkomar (493) - Poznan, POLAND - JUL 9, 2017
Aroma of red wine with loads of oak, cherries, dried fruits, some vanilla and a bit of caramel. Unfortunately there is still a bit of alcohol which is not hidden well. Taste is sweet with rather low bitterness. Smooth, dense with notes of dried fruits and caramel. Very enjoyable with longlasting aftertaste. Great beer.

4.1
Szulo (178) - Płock, POLAND - JUL 3, 2017
Intensywny aromat, dużo się dzieje począwszy od nut pieczonego jabłka, rodzynek, daktyli po szlachetny alkohol. W smaku mimo dosyć słodkiego aromatu, jest gęsto, dużo ciała spora podbudowa ze słodów, nuty kandyzowanych owoców, znowu rodzynki, daktyle, figi, pycha.

2.7
tomer (3564) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUN 25, 2017
at a tasing, thanks, smallish head, light hazy dried apricot orange color, lots of alcohol in aroma with peach and brown bread, noticable sourness, bread and some herbs. Heavy and difficult to drink.

3.5
josanguapo (1728) - SPAIN - JUN 24, 2017
From Decervecitas. In Teku glass. Playing Outcast + Grim Legends 3. Very sweet, leaves the mouth sticky. Superb aroma to sweet wine. Taste is also like sweet wine but below aroma and below a true sweet wine
