A-Black in the glass, some dark head that doesn't last that long.

S-Rather fruity, oak and wine notes. Together with the roasted malt and the chocolate. But the wine and fruit are the main part.

T-Very similar to the nose, started off with grapes, wine, oak and fruit. The finish was much more like a regular stout.

M-Medium to heavy in body, not much carbonation.

O- A HUGE thanks to the super generous person that shared in line. I don't know who you are, but you are a huge bro.

750ml orange waxed bottle served in a FFF mini snifter.

A: Pours a viscous black color with a thin dark brown head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring, some splotches of lace are left down the glass.

S: Lots of fruity wine notes with a heavy sweetness. Dark fruits, oak and some green grape as well. Roasted malts with the heavy DL chocolate sweetness.

T: Way too sweet. Lots of oak and dark chocolate with a fruity, grapey wine presence. The barrel imparts an over the top fruity sweetness to an already sweet beer.

M: Medium to heavy bodied with a medium low carbonation. Sweet finish with a sticky mouthfeel.

O: Way too sweet. The barrel doesn't help in cutting some of the sweetness and just adds sweet, fruity notes to the base.
