750 mL bottle. Pours black with a light tan head. Chocolatey with red and green grape, a little creamy. Fruity grape and raisin with creamy, light coffee and dark cocoa. A nice blend of flavors. Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2014
Pours a dark brown color with off white foam head. Aroma of oak, red wine tannins, with chocolate and roast beneath. Sweet tarty dark fruit start with chocolate and roast after and a dry oak finish. A little too tart for me to love. But very solid. Just don’t think the wine barrel works with a roasty porter. But the sour guys will likely enjoy.

750 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a dark chestnut brown with modest-sized beige head. Aroma is oak, red wine and some dark malts. Flavour has definite red wine character, fair amount of barrel, chocolate, lightly roasty, caramel and some dark fruit. Below average carbonation. Slick mouthfeel. Quite nice. gnoff (10226) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
Draught at Falling Rock Tap House, Denver, April 10 2014.BadAprilia1000 (433) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2014
Black color, brown head. Sweet, raisin, malty scent. Sweet, bourbon taste. Vanilla aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Pours a super dark ruby red. Aroma is of red wine, tannins, cocoa, coffee, acidity, and citrus. Taste is of chocolate, coffee, cream, tannins, dry red wine, oak, vanilla, sour grapes, acidity. For those of you who are wine buffs, this is a fantastic beer. I work at a winery and craft beer is my true love, but this is a fantastic take combination of both styles. The wine characteristics take over after you get all of the chocolate, creamy espresso coffee, porter notes. Very interesting beer.

Main thing is- doesn't taste like a Ltic Porter. That reflects on body & overall score. Otherwise pretty good brew.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose and taste of red wine, oak, tannins, chocolate, grape and vanilla. Prickly carbonation. Medium body. Dryish finish. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2014
[Bottle] Pours black without much head to it. Nose is of red wine, smooth malts and wood. Taste is heavy on the red wine. Fig, plum and wooden notes are prominant as well. Decent balance. Roasty finish. A pretty good beer. Interesting for sure. Tasting notes from 2/2014. anthony850 (471) - Andover, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2014
On tap smooth Baltic porter with hint of wine.

Milky and creamy aroma. Black pour with tan head. Had this poured from draft at Jerry's (north) in Chicago. Creamy pallette with cocoa coffee and milk taste. Very good. Like a milkshake
