A: The pour is a dark amber color with a thin layer of khaki colored head. S: A very wine forward nose. Lots of red fruits, vinous notes, and plenty of oak (sort of tannic). There is a mild alcohol presence and a decent amount of chocolatey oxidation. T: Sweet caramel and chocolate (oxidation) start things of. The wood and wine provide a spicy, peppery, note and some sweet red fruit. The alcohol comes through a bit strong at moments, but for the most part itís mellow. M: The body is medium with a low to medium level of carbonation. Overall, a pretty smooth mouthfeel. D: The alcohol can be slightly on the harsh side at times, but overall itís pretty enjoyable. Iím not usually the biggest fan of non-sour wine barrel aged beers, but this was good.

Pours a dark brown with an off white head. Has aromas of caramel, spice, and oak. Flavors of caramel and oak upfront, quicky giving way to a spiceness with wine flavors at the finish.

Bottle sample at the Heavy Seas tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits back in October. Pours a hazy brown with a medium beige head. Tart grape nose with some sweet caramel. Flavor is caramel and tannins with some fruit and a boozy, winey finish.

Bottle. Dark cherry brown pour with beige head. Aroma of unsweetened dark chocolate, cherries, and roasted malt. Flavor is toffee, black cherry, and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is incredible: creamy and lusciously smooth and slightly heavy and thick. Mmm.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is very nice. I get some caramel malt, along with some chocolate, dark fruit and alcohol. I also get a little bit of grape and red wine notes. The flavor is heavy on the caramel, toffee, brown sugar and dark fruit. I also get a little bit of citrus fruit and some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Goodgrief (1829) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Chestnut brown pour, with surprisingly big head and some nice lacing. Light boozy nose. The flavor really picked up the cab flavor, like a nice twist of beer and wine. Sweet malty flavor with the bitter tannin twang. Velvety in the mouth. I liked the beer/wine hybrid.
