Mirror 22oz bottle, Vintage 2014, drinking it a bit early than recommended: Best After 2/24/15, 11.2% ABV
A 3.75 - opaque, murky brown with a tall beige head that holds good retention eventually fading to a foam atop the ale
S 4.25 - beer with some wine noticeable, bread, toffee, raisin, oak, a bit musty
T 4.5 - rich and boozy, beer and wine actually pair well here; bread crust, toffee, brown sugar, sultana, earth, oak, vanilla, faint grape
M 4.25 - full bodied, lower carbonation, booze is well concealed, very well balanced
O 4 - excellent English Barleywine with some uniqueness with the wine barrel aging. I wasn't sure how well it would meld, but it works well. Although this is really good, it is a high priced bomber and I'm not quite sure it lives up to expectations, therefore I won't be buying it again.

Far too hopped to be an english barleywine.
