Draft at pinnochios. Pours hazy yellow with a nice sized head. The aroma has some nice vinegar notes, lemon, minimal quad qualities. The taste has a nice tartness up front that finished with a little bit of dark fruit notes. Very cool brew.

A very complex beer that hits you in waves. Upfront itís a quad, then the cherry/grape/wine taste comes through, then the tartness of a sour, and finishes dry. Enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour on tap at the Denver Rare Beer Tasting 2012, dark reddish brown pour with tan slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of sweet cherry, vanilla, medicine, some dark fruits, toffee, molasses, caramel notes, touch of wine, slight tart notes with some oak as well, red fruits, slight funk that mixes oddly with the sweetness. Taste is a mix of sweet vanilla, oak, grape, vanilla, cherry, some odd lemony tart notes mixing into slight dark fruits with some dark sugars including molasses and toffee, finishing sweet, very slight tart note. Didnít mix quite well for me.

750ml shared by some generous soul at the DC tasting. The wine barrels actually complement and mellow the whole beer out. Sweet, almost excessively sweet. Honey tinged Barleywine. Unique offering.
