Had this on tap at the Bier Stein as well as from a bottle poured into a glass goblet. Wow. You can smell this thing from a foot away. It pours out with a deep reddish-brown color and a nice foamy white head. The smell is earthy and oaky, but at the same time fruity, as of cherries or cranberries. The taste is amazing...so many different types of malts, but it's ultimately very fruity and mainly I taste cherry...though there is a sweeter and deeper undertone there as well. You can barely taste the alcohol, making this one of the most drinkable barelywines I've ever encountered. None of that gagging, pure ethanol, or overwhelming ripe fruit taste going on here that one can often get with a barelywine. I'd even drink this in a season that's not winter, that's how good it is. Great great stuff.

A 2009 bottle poured into a wide wine glass.

A: Dark amber. Nice medium hed with a very light brown color. The beer hangs on to the wine glass walls very nicely, leaving traces of its presence.

S: Alcohol, caramel, wood, peaches, orange skin.

T: Very sweet finish, a lot alcohol blending with the malts, peaches, oranges, prunes..very fruity.

M: The body is huge. Light carbonation.

D: High, if you are up to a wild ride.

This is a very complex beer, and the complexity is in it's aroma and taste. I guess the fact that 35% of it, it's aged in oak barrels, contributes to its richness. A wild trip to the palate, but the end of the road is rewarding and revealing.

...and the walls stand straight up and down and beer is all there is. (Charles Bukowski).
