Sampled at the brewery during RBSG 2106 in Pittsburgh. The draft pour was black with a tan head. Nose of dark ripe fruit. and the red wine. Full in body. The lfvor here is rich, with plums and raisins, and lots of flavor from the wine barrels. Finishes big. A sipper for sure, and an excellent one. Really enjoyed this.

Black with red edges, 2 finger tan head. Honestly smells like putting your nose in a wine barrel with something like brother thelonious floating around. Everything about the flavor though is on point. You get a tannic, oaky burnt wine flavor with a ton of oxidation. Then theres the beer itself. sweet with belgian candied sugar, astounding sweetness cut with a great belgian yeast strain, some cherry, herb, even floral at the finish. booze is present but drinks maybe like a 9% beer. exceptional and could crust a 750.

On tap @ Homestead location, RBSG 2016. Hazy copper brown. Fairly strong vinous character along with raisins, oak, and vague spicy nuances all in good balance. Finish is warming. Excellent.

Bottle shared by Mark at his Last Hurrah tasting - thanks again, Mark! Bottle 346. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head that settles into a ring. Notes of raisins, caramel, cookies, oak, Cabernet. Medium-bodied, with medium-plus carbonation and a dry, vinous, tannic mouthfeel that belies some of the underlying quad sweetness. Good barrel treatment.
