really wanting to like this beer, nice change, tobacco in the finish, pretty subdued flavors, well balanced, little sourness mid palete, sweet aroma notes, apple and bubblegum sourness in the finish
pinot noir, merlot, grenache barrels aged for three years at 10% abv
in this dream sequence, a wine barrel mixture of 80% imperial stouts aged in french oak pinot noir and merlot barrels is blended with 20% barleywine aged in a frenk oak grenache barrel

Dark brown pour, not the most appetizing looking beer, seemed to have coffee in it from the aroma, maybe just coffee malt.
Taste, I've never had Drake's IS, but I dunno if this is for me, astringent bitterness not backed up enough with malt chewiness/viscosity. Thin, wood, booze. One of my least favorite from Drake's.

Sampled 11/13/2010 at -bal fest 2010.
Pours black with brown showing through and hazy. Tan/brown head, decent lacing and retention.
Aroma is fresh oak, roast, coffee, and vinegar.
Flavor is slightly vinegary, heavy roast, caramel, hints of wine, and some booze.
Body is heavy with decent drinkability.
