Hangar 24's Vinaceous. An old ale brewed with Mourvedre wine grapes, on French oak. 8.7% ABV

A: Deep reddish-brown, sort of like a Flemish red ale. About a half a finger of head. Light lacing. Yellow gradients towards orange in the dimple.

S: Ooh! There is a moderate amount of sourness to it. Pleasant surprise there. Dry, yet fruity grape smell. Molasses-y, malty. Some raisin. Not bad.

T/MF: Quite different on the palate! Plenty of bitter malt notes going on here. Burnt caramel, ash, tobacco. Darker fruit notes hidden in the back (prune, maybe). Grape skin. Not a trace of acidity on this end, taste-wise, though I am salivating, slightly. Slightly more carbonated on the tongue.

Poured into a Belgian tulip glass, from a 22 oz. bottle.
