Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a dark, cloudy chestnut brown-amber. Bottle was a slow gusher, leaving a massive, coarse off-white head that dissipated quickly to a thin, uneven head with lots of chunky lacing. Intriguing, but confusing aroma of vinous grape juice, caramel malt, oak, hints of vanilla and hops. Flavor is rather subdued compared to the aroma, with mild vinous grape juice and must, bready and light caramel malt; earthy with hints of oak. Finishes with bittering hops and residual vanilla, dark malt and oak. Medium bodied with a pleasant mouth feel. I'm not normally a big fan of wine barrel aged beers, but the vinous influence on this one was nicely balanced with interesting oaky malt and hops. Very little herbal hop flavor, but this find of a lone bottle could have sat on a shelf for a while. This barreled beer is otherwise none the worse for the further aging. An off-beat and interesting aged ale that is at the outer fringes of the American IIPA category.

Bottle from Fonduevoodoo for CanBIF Spring 2014.
A - Pours a deep red, cloudy colour with good carbonation coming up. Three fingers of off white head on top. Good lace spatterings and a film of retention.
S - Super interesting. Grapey, winey, malty, some citrus. Very original. Yeasty as well as woody and some dark fruit. Super cool.
T - Vinous element is definitely there. Not much in the way of DIPA characteristics. Some citrus and serious malt.
M - Good carbonation, medium to full body and a dark fruit/bitter finish.
O/D - This isn't exactly a DIPA. But it's a very curious and creative beer, which i respect. The vinous element really takes hold but plays well with the character of the beer. You also can't detect any alcohol, which is a bonus. All in all, a good experience, and a new way to look at beer.
