Pours a copper color with an off-white head. The wine aromas really come through strongly on this. Quite oaky with lots of grape/fruit notes. Lightly tropical and very sugary. There's a hint of lemon tartness and alcohol as well. The flavor is similar to the nose. Lots of wine, oak, and sugar. A hint of booze, light tropical fruit notes, and some citrus qualities. A nice berry and grape fruitiness to it as well.

A: Dirty looking dark reddish brown in color. Forms a smallish head, though in all actuality this beer just looks flat. No lacing.

S: Aroma consists of a malty sourness, red wine grapiness, and tea/

T: Brown sugar, with a mild caramel maltiness and a decidedly vinous quality. Almost sour, but not quite there.

M: Medium bodied, slightly tart with virtually no carbonation.

O: I'm not so sure about this beer. Not sure what it's supposed to be, and while it's not bad, it's not great either. Apparently this one cost $11 for a 12oz. Certainly not worth that price.

Pours ruby red with lifeless appearance, no head or lacing. Light passes through, somewhat cloudy appearance. Nose is full of red wine tannins, some oak character. Red grapes are present. The taste is tart with some grape sweetness followed by oak and tartness. Mouthfeel is somewhat heavy with moderate carbonation. Overall, at a dollar an ounce, this one is a bit steep for what it is.
Pretty tasty overall.

A - Muddy brown, but when held up to light it is a ruby red, thin soapy off white head, light lacing.

S - Sour cherries, mixed berries, candi sugar, strawberry jam, slight olive and funk aromas as well.

T - Very light. Cherries, green raisons, figs, nutty malt, a touch of white oak. As it warms the flavors become slightly stronger.

M - Medium bodied, low carbonation.

O - This is a decent beer. I can't justify the cost though. This is similar to Dogfish Head Raison D'etre which costs less for a 6 pack than 1 bottle of this and they are both equally enjoyable. I'll pay 15 dollars all day for any bottle of Mikkeller...I can't say that about Evil Twin. Hopefully now that he is working out of the US the prices will be more accurate to the quality.

Best before 2015. $13.99 @ Honeygo Wine & Spirits

Had during Brewvival 2012! Served from tap into a Brewvival sampler imperial pint. Poured a dark brown with a very minimal tan head. There was no lacing evident throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, dark fruit, earth, wood, sugar, and fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, dark fruit, wood, very subtle sugar, and fruit. It had a medium feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. The wine barrel did a little bit for this one as far as enhancing the flavor and aroma going on here, but it didn't knock it out of the park so to say like I would have liked to have seen. All of the right aspects for the style were there though which helped it quite a bit with its score. Still worth trying if you get the opportunity. Tick.
