Batch 1, bottled March 2013.

A: Pours near black with a surprisingly faint light brown film for a head. Soapy lace.
S: Pinot noir comes through nicely alongside tart scents of acid and buttery oak. Faint cheesy funk.
T: Pinot noir dominates again with gritty oak tannins and grape skins, a hint of dark chocolate, lactic acid, and butter oak in the finish. One dimensional but delicious.
M: Very soft and frothy carbonation, medium body, slicker and a bit thinner than I would have liked.
O: A red wine bomb, smooth and easy. Needs more carbonation and funk, but definitely flavorful and interesting. However, my least favorite Anchorage beer so far.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Firestone Walker snifter.

A: Opaque and essentially black, with a thin light tan head and fairly low visible carbonation.

S: Funk and acetic acid, some feet, vinous character, oak barrel, and roasted malts. Smells fairly sour.

T: Funky tartness, coffee roasted malts, vinous, acetic acid. The funk character predominates over the sourness. Has some oak tannins lurking underneath. An almost absent finish, with only light tartness, acetic acid and roast malt bitterness.

M: Medium body to a bit on the heavier side, low carbonation sensation. Alcohol presence seems middle of the road.

O: I found it relatively enjoyable but nothing to truly excite the palate. A bit odd - strikes me as a coffee sour. Still, glad to have tried it.

750ml bottle into a tulip. march 2013 vintage

dark black color with a half inch beige head. smell of tart cherries, very good! smell is so awesome. taste not quite..bit still good.big tartness up front with a lack of cherries, though the back end is quite a bit bitter. finish lingers with bitter cherries. good..could be even better with even more age. very juicy. medium body and low carbonation.

overall 13 months did it well, needs even more age though
