It is still very good, and probably smoother than before (but I have no clear memory to compare it to). Still, though, it's less coherent than other Parabolas have been and it finishes somewhat bitter after an interesting vinous opening. Maybe the tannins from the wine are creating a bit of disharmony with the hops. Still, small complaints!

Superlative Urn beverage consumed with gratitude to Eden.

Love wine barreled stouts, and this is ... big winner. I foolishly didn't take notes and this was a couple weeks ago, but I have another bottle so I'll write more then.
