750ml bottle split three ways poured into a Bourbon County snifter at cellar temp 54F.

Dark brown near black pour with a tan creamy head with great retention and moderate lacing.

Smell is roasty and hoppy, the wine barrel presence is nice with a sweetness and white grape aroma. Some dark fruits as well.

Taste is very nice with the base beer shining, roasty malts and strong bitter hops, the wine presence adding a sweetness that the base beer did not otherwise possess, the lack of bourbon takes away an otherwise toffee and vanilla flavor, but replaces with a nice oaky light grape flavor.

Mouthfeel is smooth, creamy, medium to full, not overly sticky, dry finish, great drinkability.

Overall a fantastic brew that will drink best now, worth seeking out especially given the limited availability. Well-done and very dirnkable.

Pours dark brown with no carbonation and a small head. The nose is pure bourbon with lots of vanilla and oak that balances against a dark and roasty stout. The nose has a slight vegetal aspect to it. The beer itself follows the nose with a strong astringent bourbon up front that has loads of vanilla, coffee and dark chocolate. As I describe it, I'd think I'd enjoy this more than I did but it just didn't blend together well. The mouthfeel is smooth with a slight astringency in the finish.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #345/522.

Appearance - Black body. Small khaki head. Medium collar.

Smell - Bright wine aroma. White wine. Strong oak. Chocolate. Black patent malt.

Taste - Chocolate, but immediately a sharp wine flavor. Slightly acidic. Oak. The wine flavor lingers. Kinda sweet. Dry winey finish.

Mouthfeel - A little sharp from the wine. Sweet from both beer and wine.

Overall - The wine wipes out the stout flavor and leaves wine. A little too strong for me.
