750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown. Almost black. Excellent head and seeming eternal retention.

Smell - You can still smell the roast malts back there. A little bit of vinegar acidity. Red wine vinous notes. Very nice.

Taste - Nice acidity. Very strong sourness. Dark cherry flavors. Red wine flavors, including astringency. A little bit of that porter comes through, too.

Mouthfeel - Overcarbonated. Nicely sour, almost too sour, but not quite over the edge.

Overall - Who knows what this tasted like fresh, but it tastes pretty damn good still.

Finally cracked open my bottle a few weeks back.

Color is a dark ruby with a light tan head.

Flavor profile is a lot of sour and fun. Cherries, oak, and tannin all present. A little bit of spices show (gift of the magi?). Some herbal flavors. Maybe a hint of orange peel. Very wine like. Reminds me of consecration.

Medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. Definitely a solid beer, but nothing out of this world. I would definitely drink this again.

On tap @ Bottleworks.

Appearance. Pours a dark brown with a little red, no head.

Smell. Nice sour brown smell, sour cherries, brown sugar, oak and melon.

Taste. Medium lactic sourness, lots of oak, some cherry and light fruits.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, virtually flat with just a faint bit of carbonation.

Overall. Nice sour brown but the lack of carbonation was a little disapointing ...I say a little 'cause, well you know, LA ;-)

Pours a dark purplish black color with a huge frothy beige head that very slowly fades into a lasting cap.  Chunks of soapy lace left behind.

Vinous aroma with lots of dark fruit and red wine character.  The barrel character is strong with lots of oak, vanilla and boozy sweetness.  The blend is 66% bourbon barrel but I'm picking up more wine barrel with lots of vinous fruit.  There's also some herbal spice, dark malt and honey sweetness.  

Overly carbonated with lots of dry, earthy oak and vinous fruit sweetness.  Strong red wine and dark fruit presence but again, I'm not picking up any bourbon barrel even though it's the majority of the blend.  Hints of grape, dark cherry, plum, currant and other dark berries make the beer very sweet and overpower the malt characteristics of the base beers.   Subtle honey with slightly acrid roasted malt notes once it warms considerably.  Very dry with hints of caramel, toast and dark chocolate.  Decent but one dimensional with too strong of a red wine barrel flavor.
