RW80 (2813) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2017
33cl bottle thanks to Benzai. Apperance; A d ark brown body, with a red glare coming through, small to average sized light brown colored head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma: Oak, wine,red fruit, malts. Taste: Sourish, red fruit,grapes, wine, wood, flowers, roasted malts. Finish is dry. Decent body and carbonation Overdone with the barrel, still interesting, but there are some questions about if less would be more seeing a lot of things, which I like in a Black Imperial Ales overshaddowed by the wine barrel.

CraftBeerNick (2831) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2017
Bottle at home, 21st October 17. Pours black. Aroma is vineous, cocoa. Taste is slight vineous and sour cocoa, not much sweet, interesting and tasty black beer, quite far off a black IPA, more or a sour stout, good beer any way.

minutemat (6063) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2017
330ml bottle from trade with MonsterMagnet. Thanks MonsterMagnet. Pours a confident black with a frothy pale beige head. Aroma has some nice red berry fruit, perhaps some rioja barrel. Taste is on the rich side with complex sweet swirls of red berries latching on well to a rich rioja wine presence. Some additional chocolate roast nestled underneath. Perhaps a lightly harsh woody edge but otherwise an interesting dark beer with plenty going on.

MelvinKalksma (1725) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2017 Opaque black beer with a slight beige head. Slight sour aroma that is rather complex nonetheless. Great flavour that shines thanks to the red wine barrels and the added red fruit. Still has some chocolate and roasted malts, but the hops are washed away.

EvNa (502) - Ede, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle. Color: Black, dense light brown head. Taste: Roasted malt, mix of medium sweet and fruity sour notes, overripe red fruit (berries, cherries. Lightly hints of wood. Boozy and vinous finish. Nice beer, the added red fruit and barrel ageing makes this taste something between an imperial stout and flemish-style brown ale in my opinion. Fairly unique taste, glad to have had the opportunity to taste this one.

MrOrla (3529) - Odense C, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2017
Bottle @ TTOD(U)RBSG17. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of yeast - bubbleum, raspberry, roasty, slight note of licorice, fruity, slight hoppy. Taste is rather fruit foward, light sour - guess this is the berries that makes it sour, slight roasty.
