4.03/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown, almost black. No head. The thinnest of collars.

Smell - Weird. Red wine grapes. Red wine. Oak. Something slick and a little buttery. Dark chocolate. Really smells like a red wine with chocolate.

Taste - Red wine. Grape flavor. Slightly tangy,but never really sour. More just acidic. Sweetness in the middle. Dark chocolate. Vanilla. I don't get much bourbon. Maybe an aftertaste of it. Oak lingering aftertaste gives it a slight spice.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Low carbonation. Slick and oily.

Overall - I didn't know what to think about this when I first had it. It's weird. Not quite sour, not quite sweet. It's a weird, funky red wine, but in the end it's fascinating and I really like it.

Thanks to AndrewK for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an almost opaque super dark crimson-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, bourbon, red wine, grape, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour red wine, grape, bourbon, and oak flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and wood bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with an interesting wine presence that really mellows out a lot of the normal Black Tuesday characteristics.
