By far the sweetest beer I have ever tasted. I dont know how it is even possible to get a beer this sweet. Immediately coats the palate and let's absolutely no other flavor through. This was a tough beer for me

Appearance - The beer was a black color with reddish hues and a beige colored head.

Smell - Sweet booze was well presented.

Taste - The Beer blended bourbon and red wine no it’s exceptionally well. There was sweetness of red grapes and bourbon. Nothing bitter about this one. It reminded me of an Old Fashion.

Mouthfeel -The beer had low carbonation and sticky sweetness.

Overall - The beer is desert like. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I had heard this beer was sweet and that was definitely accurate. But it was not cloyingly sweet like I feared and actually had a great amount of depth and complexity. The wine characteristics really shine through. And unlike some other 3 Sheeps BA beers, it wasn't overly hot as some of them tend to be when they are young. I liked this enough that I may look for another bottle. My wife who is a wine drinker even though that this was pretty good.

On tap. Served in a snifter glass. Pours a darker brown body, cola colored and almost black, one finger off-white head, short retention and without much lacing. Mild graham cracker, red vinous character, sweet grain, touch of oak, milk chocolate and dark fruit. It’s a weird beer, definitely a different one from most, good carbonation, medium body, slightly astringent finish.

Tasted in a snifter from draft at Beer Bazaar on June 4, 2017. This beer is way too sweet for me. If I were you, I would ask for a small sample first. Approach with caution.

Poured a raisin black color with a light tan head that vanished to a thin film of foam along the edges. The aroma is spectacular. Smells like rich red wine aged in bourbon barrels. But on top of that there are cherries and dark chocolate. The flavors almost beyond what I can describe. Truly a blend of beers. The red wine shines through with a very heavy oakiness. The bourbon is a bit more subtle but well layered into the red wine. There are a lot of flavors to pick from - cherries from start to finish with vanilla, white chocolate, and some smoke. As it warmed up the beer only became more sweeter. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied - probably from the combination of lower alcoholic beers. Very complex and in depth but at the same time it gets a little too sweet.

This one is all over the place. A bit soupy in the body with dusty and booze filled sweet finish, this beer tastes like a mix of all kinds of things soaked in booze. Oak, chocolate, cherries, raisin, and wine? I don't even know for sure with such a sweet shellac over it all. Strong ale, but not in an artful way, but does get the job done

The latest version of this came out about a wk ago. Once again I think they just nailed it. A tremendous blend that will stand up to most anything one could find. Great job !
