Poured into a tumbler a cellar temperature.
A - Pours a dark amber color with a tan head. The head is long lasting.
S - And strong malt smell, paired with and equal hop smell.
T - Malty with some oaky tones. The red wine barrels are not very evident. The hops are a little harsh given it's listed as an English barley wine.
M - medium viscosity with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O - A little harsh for an English barely wine. Drinkable, but not up to the level of hype that it has received. For something aged in wine barrels the wine character is lost amongst the hops. Might as well use bourbon barrels.

Poured from a wax topped bottle. 2014 version.

A- Dark brown with a cocoa colored head. Poured into a tulip glass with a nice 3 finger head

S-Please bring us some figgy pudding and bring it right here. Huge fig smell, and a hint of caramel

T-Huge caramel upfront, followed by a crush of figs, and then closes with a merlot taste. You can taste the wine barrel in the close.

M-Sticky like a caramel party in my mouth, nice and thick.

O- Not my thing, but this is how this beer should taste. I feel like I just ate a fig newton followed by a Snickers bar. Fantastic.
