Big thanks to DocJ007 for sharing this one with us.

A - Pours black with a nice one finger tall tan head, dissipating down to next to nothing, leaving small streaks of lace down the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of lots of vinous wine, oak, peppers, chocolate, vanilla and dark roasted malt. The red wine is pretty strong but it isn't out of control.

T - Starts off with a mix of base flavors like chocolate, vanilla and peppers but that quickly becomes enveloped by the strong vinous wine flavors that never really fade away from then on. Finish is a mix of dark roast, mild sweetness and vinous oak tannins combine to linger on the palate long after the finish.

M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Sweet, heavy feel with plenty of vinous tannins lurking in its depths.

O - I enjoyed this one, just not as much as the JD version. I have come to like wine BA stouts and this one certainly had plenty to offer. I think it works well but it also overpowers most of the base flavors a bit too much for my liking. Still an awesome beer none the less.
