4.03/5 rDev -4.7%
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.

Reviewing Wineification from The Bruery out of Placentia, California. This beer is Black Tuesday with Syrah grapes aged in French Oak barrels.
2013 vintage bottle served in a stemmed Mikkeller taster and enjoyed on 05/13/14.
Appearance: Pours a jet black color with minimal head that quickly and totally settles. No lacing or retention. Okay legs. 2.75/5
Smell: Tannic oak and winey Black Tuesday. Chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit and booze. Nose-apparent sweetness. 3.75/5
Taste: Wine/grapes infused with chocolate. Less sweet than Black Tuesday, and not cloying. Nice chocolatey finish. Hint of vanillla. Ashy roast, dark fruit and licorice too. 4/5
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, minimal carbonation. Sweet and tannic, but not as sweet as most Bruery stouts. Light alcohol warmth and booziness. 3.75/5
Overall: Solid, but nothing too special or can't miss. Mocha Wednesday was better, but this was probably more drinkable.
Cost: $40 for a 750 ml bottle.

Of all the beers I have tried so far, and that boast the addition of grapes, this one is probably the better one of the lot. If you had tasted other grape beers, those grapes are very elusive. Not here.
Pours a nice dark beer. Has a bit of foam. Smells nice. Taste better.
