For this version of our favorite barleywine, we've aged the beer in pinot noir barrels from Patricia Green Cellars, located in Oregon's Willamette Valley, which is regarded worldwide as delivering the highest quality pinot noir. Patricia Green crafts beautiful pinot using grapes from the best vineyard sites in the valley. The always-present sweet caramel, vanilla, and toffee notes of Old Embalmer are accented by tannic and vinous characters gained from the wine barrels, as well as a dry finish, all accented by an assertive dose of X-431 hops.

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 8

    Poured a mid brown with orange tinged color with good carbonation leaving a mid thick head that leaves some sporadic lace. Aromas of wine, wood, vanilla, citrus, and fruits. The flavor starts with a hoppy fruity presence, in comes hints of wine with a nice vanilla and oak. Slightly bitter but a faint sweetness on the finish. Medium-bodied, and well carbonated. Overall i like this one better than last years offering (which wasnt bad).
