On tap at Kickbacks, pours a clear dark red with a tan head and spotty lacing, the aromas has quite a bit of dark fruit and vanilla from the oak, the red wine does come though on the flavor with a little bit of funk mixed in with the dark fruit and caramel, a pretty dry finish as well, I enjoyed this quite a bit.

J_man (725) - Tustin, California, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle from the Sierra Nevada gift shop. Crystal clear copper amber with red highlights. Very low carbonation and the thin head disappears quickly. Sour, funky and slight red wine vinious aromas follow very directly into the taste. Taste is tart but not as sour as the aroma would make you anticipate. This is balanced very nicely by sweet caramel and honey sweetness. The sour red wine taste wraps around the sides of the tongue in an interesting way. The body is a bit thin and the lack of carbonation makes it fall a little flat. Finishes with a lasting sourness and woody wine barrel flavors. Good overall, but I prefer the regular dubbel.

Steve_0 (2822) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle picked up at Whole foods in Santa Rosa. Pour is hazy brown with a red-tint and a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Figs, raisins, bourbon, brown sugar, dark fruits, red wine, somewhat grapey, vanilla, and oaky aroma. Taste is dark fruits, big raisins, brown sugar, toffee, caramel, plum, wood, licorice, earthy, and tobacco with a lightly tart finish. Syrupy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Decent beer but a bit dominated by the barrel for me to truly enjoy it.

375 bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a medium white head. A big nose of sweet candy and some wood. The flavor comes across with big red wine, some berries, woody, light tartness. Nice.

Bottle... Poured reddish/ruby, cloudy brown with a moderate, light off-white head. Nose had strong, dark fruit notes with some acidity. Not so much acidity on the palate. Thick mouthfeel though. Dark fruits, vinous notes, fruity esters and yeast notes, with wine-like characters and woody tones. Some dark and toasted sugars and a nice malt character that carried all the way through to the finish.
