From the brewer

Combining a roasty Imperial Stout with a jammy Syrah wine, this beer is bold and complex. Notes of coffee, dark chocolate and anise from a blend of roasted malts meld with flavors of plums, cherries and stewed fruits from Syrah grape must in this jet black stout. Aged on American oak to add some light toasty vanilla to the mix.

Who's been drinking this

Yes, this was very nice. Medium-bodied strong stout, not too roasty, not too umami. Good overtone of grape. Very drinkable. I guess this wasn't actually wine-barreled, but made with the wine, and then aged on oak. Yum!
