Bought in Germany and tasted from fridge temp. Pours a murky dark brown with light head. Nose is caramel, grapes, malts, cherries, and brown sugar. Taste is really amazing. Very robust, which is not surprising given the high ABV. Really nice wine barrel coming through. I don't think I have had such a dominant wine taste on a wine barrel aged beer. It goes perfectly with the caramel/toffee notes. Some roasted malts and candy sweetness. This intense beer is a true sipper, but really amazing. I'm a big fan. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy, although not like a big stout. Overall, a fantastic BA barley wine. If you like these types of beers, you will love this.
