Poured into a Firestone Walker tulip. Pours a dark, cloudy, muddy orange color with a fine one finger light khaki head with great retention and lots of lacing. Big aroma of caramel malt, toffee, dark dried fruit, light oak and slightly vinous. Flavor is dry caramel malt, dates and figs, mild dried plums, a bit of biscuit in the finish which also brings out very light dark red wine and oak character; a little grassy. Very well integrated flavors. Nice medium bodied with pleasant creaminess. A nicely complex and malty barleywine with good woody barrel notes. The very light vinous character leans towards a dark red wine or even port, more lightly tannic than actually vinous. A unique tasting barleywine and a quite successful use of wine barreling. I'm usually not a big fan of wine barreled beer, but this was purely pleasurable, with dark wine flavors, but little sourness. Really liked this a lot.
