Batch #3, Bomber to a snifter

Pours dark brown, almost black with red hues. Very murky muddy brown when held up to a light. A half finger of foam has died down to a thin ring pretty quickly, mild carbonation from the sides, think lacing 4/5

Smells pretty complex. Upfront dark notes, dusty chocolate, raisin, fig, cherry, oak, white wine, bourbon, some funk and a little alcohol. Everything comes together well, really interesting beer. Smells like a mix between a bb stout and a wine barrel Belgian 4.25/5

Taste is a bit of a curve ball. Lots of fig, raisin, chocolate, and molasses in the front. After that is a tart dark berry, followed by some oak- nice mix of mostly wine with strong hints of bourbon. Ends with a touch of alcohol 4.25/5

Feel is a moderate body, actually really smooth on the way down. Moderately tart, nothing close to sour. Alcohol is hidden well, it's really easy to drink 4.25

Overall it's different, but good. I know it's classified as a wild ale, but I still have no idea what sort of beer I just drank. More like a BA strong ale. It's really good though 4.25/5

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Pours a dark brown, almost cola like color. Short dense tan head that settles into a light ring.

The aroma is of a brown bread malt. Some caramel and vanilla notes provide extra sweetness. Perhaps a hint of bourbon. The wine barrel and yeast add a tart edge to the aroma and a fruit grape note. Some sugary sweetness. Its interesting to say the least. Kind of works.

The taste is quite bizarre. The barrels seem to contrast and produce an odd herbal flavor. The flavor starts off bready, some toast. This quickly is over-taken by both barrels, at the same time. The bourbon fights with the wine barrel, which produces a vanilla tart grape. Not sure vanilla and grape should go together. The beer has a nice caramel backbone. The base beer is pretty nice, a bit of a Belgian thing going. Some clove, plum and licorice. I dunno a bit too much going on.

Moderate feel with fizzy carbonation. Clean on the palate, perhaps a touch sweet. The abv is well hidden. Drinks well.

Not sure the combination of barrels worked well with this beer. It contrasts too much and produces an odd flavor.
