Pours amber with cream head. Nose has a hint of barrel. Taste is dense but not overwhelming. Hints of oak, wine and a sweet tang. Very drinkable. Kudos to Figueroa Mountain Brewing for a great anniversary brew.

Mahogany pour with an off-white head. Caramel, dark fruit, and some vanilla aromas. Mild red wine, sweet malt, some oak, and vanilla. Nice sweet flavor of caramel, dark fruit, and vanilla. Lots of prune and raisin, wine, some oak, and a hint of chocolate. Notes of bubblegum and banana, too.
