I have never taken the time to write out a review on here , until now....

Bottle poured into a Riedel Cabernet/Merlot/Bordeaux Glass

A: Pours dark black with a brown/redish foam

S: Wine grapes, bourbon, oak and chocolate. Somewhat similar to Backyard Rye (Which we also had that day), but not as fruity.

T: The Syrah grapes are huge on this beer, some booze, but not as strong as Black Tuesday, chocolate and a slight fruit sweetness. The French Oak barrels add a nice touch to this that bourbon barrels just could not do. Don't be afraid to let this beer open up either.

M: Very delicate, with a bit more carbonation than Black Tuesday and its other variants. Slightly warm from the alcohol, but not as strong as BT or Chocolate Rain.

O: This beer really showcases a mature side of the Bruery. They went out of the box on this beer and hit a f$%#*&ing homerun. You really need to apprecaite a great glass of wine in order to fully appreaciate this beer. Its not for everyone, especially your average beer drinker. Its not supposed to be sour as the wine grapes don't do that for this beer. Its an excellent example of what happens when Wine meets the beer world. Age can do some really great things for this beer (which is why I didn't give it 5's across the board), specifically the syrah grapes with the French Oak barrels and well the base beer is Black Tuesday, what else can be said about that....

Thanks to my buddy Kevin for this amazing beer! Cheers!
