I am going to vote no on basically every wine-barrel aged beer that isn’t a sour for the next few months. Weird grapey sweetness mixed with barleywine sweet malt character and a bit astringent. Blah.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours half a finger of head on a dark brown body.
The aroma is musty wood with grapes... and a touch of lemon.
The taste is dark, boozy with strong bitterness, molasses, wine notes and a dry wood finish.
The texture is smooth and soft with low carbonation.
Fairly nice. This was a 2013 bottle, which will probably smooth out with age.

2011 bottle, hand #’ered. Oh god what did I drink. I read barrel aged and assumed bourbon, when zinfandel hits my lips im shocked wretching in horror then the barley wine finish takes over and i’m back.. rinse and repeat over and over.
