4.08/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
From 02/26/14 notes. Had an 8 oz. pour on tap at Bondurants in NYC. Served in a snifter.
a - Pours a deep brown color with two inches of medium tan head moderate carbonation evident. Looks pretty good.
s - Smells of sour red wine, spice, earthy notes, floral notes, sweet dark fruits, oak, and lightly sweet and sour berries. Nice nose, tons of sour red wine and fruits as it warms up.
t - Tastes of sweet dark fruits, berries, sour red wine and dark fruits, oak, tannic, spice, herbal, earthy notes, floral notes, dirt, pepper, light toasted and roasted malts, and light chocolate. Some more dark fruit than the nose and lightly sour; not as much as the nose.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. No heat and pretty easy to drink.
o - Overall a good beer; pretty interesting. Lots of sour wine and dark fruits come through, especially as it warms up and in the nose. Wouldn't trade a ton for it but would definitely recommend trying it if you see it on tap.

This beer is a sleeper. Looks all dull and brown...even smells a bit funky and weird...but the taste...whoa....awesome. The fruits and the spices are all blended perfectly...this is a really, really good beer. It is so smooth and the wine barrel aging puts it over the top and rounds out a very smooth, superbly balanced beer.
