Chocolate, coffee, mocha. Aged in oak pinot noir barrels, and you can definitely taste it. Medium body, sour pinot noir finish. Different, best marriage of beer and wine that I've had.

Very complex stout. Wood, burnt malts, smoke, bitter roast, booze along with some vinous qualities. A little tart. A pretty easy drink for the booze level. Would like touch more carb, but very solid beer overall. Gift from liquidcucumber.

12.7 oz corked and caged bottle, no date

Cork jumps out with a pop. The beer poured into the glass foams up like crazy, big 3" high tan head. Beer is jet black. Beer leaves nice rings of lacing, good head retention. Sharp fermented fruit aroma, bitter cocao as well. Similar flavor in the taste. Strong dry red wine flavors are pungent, acidic. Dry bitter roasty flavors as well. Medium body, coats the mouth.
