One of the best wine barrel aged beers I've had. Usually (for me) the red wine clashes with the dark beers, but this blend is near perfect. Great mouthfeel, lingering texture. All around a solid product. I've never had the base beer but I can't imagine the wine barrels have done anything but improve it.

Pours beautifully with a copious mocha colored head. Had to pour in multiple stages - impressive for a barrel aged imperial stout.

Smells immediately bright and grapey, with roasty coffee behind that. Really seductive nose, especially for those who appreciate a vinous character in beer.

Tastes quite fruity, with grape and berries taking the lead. An effervescent, almost tangy stout that remains somewhat anchored by a full, roasty body. I wouldn't say there's a complete marriage of flavors though - the fruit comes to dominate everything else, with citrus flavors even adding to the mix later. Faint chocolate brings up the rear. The wine barrel might have married better with a barleywine. Still a tasty and intriguing experience, especially for those who enjoy wine-y beers.

Mouthfeel is full and somewhat creamy. But also high on the carbonation/effervescence scale for an impy stout.
