Crushed with Jakebra. Nice nose, kinda. Smells like a stouty sour, not the other way around. Flavor leaves much to be desired. Very bready flavor, which is so far from a barley wine it’s not even funny. And the guy who rated before me sucks. dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 30, 2010
(375ml bottle). Pours dark cola color with thin rand head. Aroma of concord grapes mostly. Taste is semi-sweet with some sourness. There is a malty backbone to this, however. This smells like a sour, but the base beer is still noticeable. Medium to full bodied with a silky mouthfeel. Grapes definitely coming through in the end. One of the more unique beers I’ve had lately. I would get this again. fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 24, 2011
bottle pours dark brown with a thin tan head that fades quickly leaving little trace. Aroma is dry red wine, strawberries, big horseblanket notes. Flavor is rich toast and caramel malt notes, mild booze and a big red wine finish of oak, leather and grape tannin. Really nice beer. scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Thanks for sharing, argo0! Deep maroon, small white fizzy head. Oaken grape aromas warm to dark currant, cherry, and soft cheese-like tones. Tart funked grapes gain balance on touches of fruity booze and dry wood. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. I am starting to really like the Italian brew scene… Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2008
500 ml bottle purchased at By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA--Poured a bubbly dark black body with next to no head. Nose of sour Brett, dark fruit, and powerful vinous grapes. Rich, dry, sweet, chalky, oily mouthfeel. Tannins, wine, malt, and mild hops on tongue. Finished funky, sour, and winy in the end. Not a bad beer, but for $15 a bottle, not sure I’d buy another. Still, a great find.

Bottle sample (from notes). Clear dark amber brown, no carbonation and a sour red wine and whiskey aroma. Flavor was sour red grapes, oaky, earthy and finished dry with some alcohol (but not overpowering). Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dan. Aroma is plums, chocolate, and port. Pours deep brown to black with no head. Taste is chocolate, oak, plum, cabernet, and caramel. Very sweet but it has a great tart oak port taste to it. Not too intense but some nice complexity. tomthompson89 (1982) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2008
Barley wine tasting. odd one. brownish color good head, nose is sour kinda cherry or uhhm almost some lambic notes on nose. malty flavor and too sweet, maybe another one with some age would be better. SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Deep red brown pour with minimal head. Aroma of sour fruit, malt and chocolate. Flavor is slightly sour, with a lot of fruity and vinous notes, wood and malt. A unique, but nice BW. wetherel (1888) - Cupertino, California, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Bottle at RBSG. I’ve seen this around, but haven’t tried it, possibly because it’s expensive. Black color. Dryish and bland. Eh.
