On draught at the brewpub, appearance is dar,k chocolate brown with scattered light sand foamy lace and light skim.

Smell is on the mild side, malt sugars, hint of wine. Surprised no barrel notes like coconut.

Taste is malt, some nutty roast, moderately bitter, classic American brown, with herbal hops. Vinous, but modestly so; not a big impact from the wine barrel aging.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little viscous. Mild tannins.

Drinkability is fine, a decent brown ale for sure, but it could of used more time in the barrel for sure.
