Gonna redo my review since this new batch is a vast improvement from the original one, imo.

Pours black with a slight off white head. Aroma offers some dark fruits, vinegar, and roasty, with a cross of some dark chocolate and coffee. Not sure I detected any barrel in the aroma. Flavor is dark fruits, tartness from the vinegar, roastiness giving off some mocha, vanilla from the barrel, and the barrel itself. A lighter to medium mouthfeel. Overall, really nice beer here. After having this one again on tap, wishing I had grabbed a bottle of it when I had the chance.
