Shared this with Brez07, pretty much copying his review since we were both in agreement. I'll put my notes in brackets.
A: Small pop when opening the bottle. Dark brown with lots of amber (almost purple) highlights. Minimal amount of head present, none of which is retained. [Carbonated, but barely.]
S: I got bourbon and brandy; a 1, 2 combination. Found this to be somewhat red wine-ish. Dark fruit. Initially lots of tannins, but these die off a little and more red wine fruit and barrel aspects come out. Occassionally you get just bourbon, which made me happy. [Reminded me a of a big full-bodied red wine, but bourbon and brandy kept letting me know it was a barrel-aged beer.]
T: Probably the beer equivilant of red wine. Some bourbon manages to come through (with caramel and light chocolate), but this is mostly dark fruit and tannins. Sourness from infection, but not crazy tart
M: Full bodied. Smooth with a red wine bite and [very drying finish].
O: I'm thinking this is one of the good infection bottles. Obviously I'm not sure how this is supposed to taste, but I enjoyed the ~4 oz that I drank. [Would have liked to have it the way it was meant to be, but definitely one of the more drinkable infections.]
