Thanks to Narthax for sending this over via trade.

A: Opaque black, just over 1 fingers width of mocha colored head, pretty good retention before dissipating down to a thin film that remains throughout the drink. Leaves a small amount of lacing.

S: Lots of tart vinous dark fruits, roasted malt, cream, some tannic fruity red wine aromas, subtle oak, faint coconut. At first, I was like meh, but this really grows on me the more time I spend with it.

T: Really tart, which surprised me. Somewhat sour dark fruits, lots of vinous red wine notes. Roasted malt, herbaceous oak, and coffee on the finish.

M/D: Medium bodied, could be thicker and carbonation is on the higher end, fairly smooth though, and fuller than I remember the other Noir's being. ABV is well restrained, and drinkability is good.

O: Interesting, and my favorite of the Noirs. I found the other Noirs and Bomb to all be pretty disappointing (Bible Belt was fantastic though). In this one, the barrel presence was strongest, and although a big unique I found it to be quite enjoyable.

4.38/5  rDev +10.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance- Black with a slight red hue, and a thick, foamy mocha head produced.

Aroma- Kind of mixed with nothing clear coming through. Some wine and sweet chocolate notes mainly.

Taste- Big on the red wine from start to finish. Very slight booziness. Some roasted coffee notes become apparent through the middle, followed by some milk chocolate at the end.

Feel- Smooth and creamy feel, with slight lingering malt presence.

Overall- This is huge on the red wine, but I love it. It works for me with just enough imperial stout flavors to round this out. If you like red wine check this is out for sure, but its worth the try for any imperial stout lover.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a big, frothy dark beige head. Great retention. Brew is solid black. Tons of lacing.

Roasted barley and red wine mingle together pleasantly, but unfortunately masking the rest of the smells pretty effectively. A big of chocolate sneaks through.

Flavors of tart red grapes mingle with a huge dose of roasted barley, complemented by dark cacao, cream, oak, and oats.

Full flavored but medium feel. No noticeable alcohol or sting.

This is a very tasty, very interesting stout. It's a little too tart for my tastes; the red wine comes through quite strong.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

About time and pours the darkest kola hue almost black with a rather rocky dimple laden three finger head that doesnt budge and a rim of leggy boozy lacing, the smell is red berries, booze, funky chocolate, marmalade with a ever present red wine oak background and yeah very enticing, the feel is medium bodied with slight carbonation and quite light for its high ABV,the first sip is like a fight of flavours all vying for your attention at once But the red wine and oak win the race to your palette briefly interrupted by a smooth milk chocolatiness and topped off with a funky blend of red wine, funk and sour cherries and overall I wasn't expecting that light a body but its real tasty and worth a taste just a little pricey cheers.

3.66/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

On tap at petrol station.

1 finger of tan head. Splattered lace. Color is black.

Flavor profile: it kind of tastes like a sour stout. The wine barrels really come through on this one. Tart cherries and sour grapes. Roasted malts. Plums, black licorice, molasses, and black cherries. A decent amount of oak. Chocolate.

Mouthfeel: tart and roasted. Full bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall, a bit too sour/tart for a stout for me and too roasted on top of that. Other than that, I enjoyed it, but I won't buy more of this one.

Serving type: on-tap
