brokensail (15215) - San Leandro, California, USA - NOV 22, 2010
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.

bhensonb (13533) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bomber from beachbum25. Pours very dark ruddy copper with a beige smear. Aroma is sort of brown sugar mixed with dark red berry. Full bodied. Flavor is very red berry, then it develops treacle, gets a little oak astringency, but itís really sugar/treacle/red berry. Finishes on the sweet side, but very, very tasty. Thanks Jim!

Bottle.Poured hazy brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate caramel malt, dark fruit and tanic grape aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium complex sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a standout beer.
