A nice little Yuletide treat for xmas. After prying off the black wax covering the cap, the beer looks almost completely black unless held up to the light, in which case it is closer to a dark rose. Half a finger of tan head rises to the top, making it look very sudsy. The nose has traces of port, brown sugar, whiskey and caramel. More of the same from the taste, plus some woody character, molasses and a medicinal aftertaste. Mouthfeel is thick and fairly chewy. The malt takes center stage here, with the hops barely showing their influence.No beating around the bush here with the alcohol, it is here in a big way, but adds to the flavor. Even with a year of age, the 10% is still pretty in your face. The barrel aging definitely influences this beer in an interesting way. Recommended.

3.61/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Beautiful ruby red/amber/copper color.

Smell is funky, musty, grape, boozy, sweet, spicy and earthy

Mouthfeel is very very thin, surprisingly thin

Taste is sweet, funky, winey, metallic, slight spice or every so slight burn from alcohol.

Overall: keeping this review pretty simple and to the point: it's just okay. Not great, not horrible. If this is supposed to be aged for 10 years, I don't see it happening. In my opinion, it's on the downward slope, but maybe it's on the upswing in a few years. Overall, slightly disappointed, but certainly drinkable.
