COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: An extra strong version of our London style porter, brewed in January 2009. After primary and secondary fermentation for three months on tank, the beer was racked into French oak barrels, previously used for a Cabernet Sauvignon based Bordeaux wine. After 11 months in the barrel, the beer is silky smooth and full bodied with rich chocolaty malt flavours, some red wine character and hints of vanilla and oak. Surprisingly dry on the palate, smooth and easy drinking with a complex, sweet aftertaste.
Ingredients: Barley malt, honey and hops.

Finn (7916) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2017
Flaske 330ml. Spandert av Rune. Delt med ham og djoeye i WCveien 9 Jan 17. Svart. 0 skum. Aroma av rødvin. Kanskje et lite hint av sjokolade. Smaken lett. Mest rødvin. Alkoholen veldig godt kamuflert. I en blindtest hadde denne gått som rødvin!

330ml bottle stored in my cellar for a few years, bought at the brewhouse in Copenhagen in November 2010. Dark brown coloured body ruby tinted, near clear. Shiny naked surface. Scattered lacing. Rich roasted black malty aromas, mid-sweet vanilla and bread to it. Blending taste character with elements of vanilla oak, red berries and grainy chocolate. Vinous texture. Warming, still quite easy and smooth to drink. Pleasant stuff (Shared at a session with djoeye and Finn in Tromsø, 09.01.2017).
