3.88/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A-deep brown, ruby on the edges one finger off white head

S-oak, caramel, very malty, some grapes

T-oak and slight grape noes Lots of malt, caramel and molasses. You can tell the wine did something but not much

M-lighter not much carbonation, velvety

O-A decent beer, the barrel imparted some flavors but not much. However the base beer maybe the real issue as it seemed like a regular malty red ale but with slight barrel notes.
