look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
A: This brew has a nice hazy caramel color, with a tan foamy head.
S: This has a piney smell, with hints of raisins.
T: This is weird as it doesn't have a biting bitterness, but the hops are very present and flavorful. I don't pick out any individual flavors here. The wood flavors imparted by the barrel aging have run roughshod over the delicate flavors of the hops. I expect a fair amount of alcohol flavor to be present in such a high gravity beer. In this particular example, the alcohol isn't as obvious in the first sip, but becomes more and more present and overwhelming as the sips go on.
M: Appropriate carbonation to the style. It isn't overly thick from the sugars, giving it a medium body.
O: I really enjoy the flavors of this, but unless sipped slowly, the alcohol flavor can be a bit overpowering. This is a very different take on a DIPA and I enjoy that about it most.

Bottle from Fonduevoodoo for CanBIF Spring 2014.
A - Pours a deep red, cloudy colour with good carbonation coming up. Three fingers of off white head on top. Good lace spatterings and a film of retention.
S - Super interesting. Grapey, winey, malty, some citrus. Very original. Yeasty as well as woody and some dark fruit. Super cool.
T - Vinous element is definitely there. Not much in the way of DIPA characteristics. Some citrus and serious malt.
M - Good carbonation, medium to full body and a dark fruit/bitter finish.
O/D - This isn't exactly a DIPA. But it's a very curious and creative beer, which i respect. The vinous element really takes hold but plays well with the character of the beer. You also can't detect any alcohol, which is a bonus. All in all, a good experience, and a new way to look at beer.
