look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Bottle 1147/1440, Batch 1826.

A: No pop from the cap, no carbonation on the pour. Liquid is a dark red darker than red wine – almost mahogany.
S: Sherry and super sweet caramel notes dominate alongside hints of wet cardboard, soy sauce, very faint red fruits, and faint gastric acid.
T: Follows the nose but the flavors don't work well that well together. Sweet caramel, toffee, vanilla, chocolate, sherry, cherry juice, brown sugar and maybe a touch of molasses and soy. The finish has a bolt of sour acid but it no longer reminds me of vomit. The finish is full of more caramel, some leather, and a bit of musty cardboard.
M: Medium-full body, damn near flat carbonation, and a slick and slippery mouthfeel. Wet feeling.
O: Tastes better than it smells, but neither are great. I wouldn't want to drink this again. Extremely unattractive label by the way.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottle #1393/1440. Batch #1826.

Appearance - Deep red. Wine like. No head. Thick and viscous.

Smell - Oh my. Acidic. Red wine. Chocolate. Fruity. A touch of soy sauce. Smells like port and soy sauce.

Taste - Red wine. Less sourness. Soy sauce still present. A ton of caramel. Just a tinge of acids. Chocolate and deep malts.

Mouthfeel - Flat as hell. Thick. Chewy

Overall - Really out there. Crazy tasting. The soy sauce is unpleasant but everything else is really impressive.

Grabbed at the brewery a couple weeks ago. Bottle 447 of 1440.

Poured cold from the bottle a deep dark cola brown to a dogfish head signature glass with no head whatsoever. Carbonation is near zero.

Aroma of dark sugars, black cherry.

Big bodied, super sweet, though not cloying, tart finish, though not too terribly sour.

malty, sugary sweet, syrupy, ripe black cherries, hot after.
