3.76/5 rDev -12.1%
Bottle shared on Canada Day. From notes.
A - Poured black with one finger of tan head. Good lace and film retention.
S - Strong roast, sweet chocolate, vinous, citrus.
T - Vinous, dark malt, chocolate, some alcohol, obvious wine notes. Complex.
M - Mild carbonation, full body, sweet then vinous finish.
O/D - Nice. Not hoppy enough by any means, but tasty. Wine character really takes over though. Would have liked to see more of the base beer shine.

Drank from bottle (thanks Dave!)
I'll just say I'm a huge HF fan but this is the first beer that really missed the mark for me - I didn't get any notes from the CS barrel, nor any hoppiness. It drank more like a massively sweet and thick Imperial Stout rather than a black IPA. I dunno, a glass of molasses is not my thing I guess!
This beer aside HF is amazing.

This beer is nothing short of phenomenal. Considering the variety of flavors and alcohol content, this beer is incredibly balanced. There is a considerable amount of aroma which is always attractive in a beer. It has an aroma of bourbon which is strange since it is aged in oak wine barrels.
The taste is just pure perfection. As a black ipa, it has more of a porter body and taste. The wine flavor is so balanced and plays beautifully with the oak and malt flavors. The aftertaste from each sip evolves over the course of a minute if you allow it. The mild sourness of the wine fades into a sweet oaky malt profile. Simply unbelievable.
Overall this beer almost couldn't be any better. I didn't even want to drink it, it was THAT good. Thanks to Dan for sharing.
