A: Pours black with two fingers of brown head that fades into a frothy ring with a little lacing.

S: Red wine, tanins, and oaks dominate at first. Sweet chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of bourbon come through underneath.

T: Roasted malts with lots of red wine and tanins here as well with bourbon and oak following. The finish has a slight char note along with light alcohol warmth.

M: Thick body with moderate carbonation, this beer is nicely drinkable.

O: A really good and interesting beer, overall. The red wine barrels definitely come through more than the bourbon, but they mix nicely and make for a unique barrel-aged stout.

Had from the bottle poured into a brandy snifter.

The nose was bourbon with a touch of malt and oxidized wine.
Solid BBA Stout, but not much red wine barrel quality on the tongue .
Solid mouthfeel. Not too thin, but slightly dry.

No complaints on this one. Just a solid BBA Stout with some minor complexities.

Note: let it warm up before sipping.
