A: Pours a silky looking black with probably the most ridiculous head I've ever seen. It's like a root beer float head that lasts half an hour. If you move the beer, the head wiggles like jello. Pretty crazy stuff.
S: Dusty cocoa, light raisin and red wine and maybe a hint of spice. A little underwhelming, but still smells good.
T: The wine and stout kind of work together and kind of don't. At their best, the flavor is reminiscent of dark chocolate covered cherries or Trader Joes Dark Chocolate Powerberries. But other times, the flavors become a bit disjointed and you get strong cocoa and dark chocolate flavors trying to mingle with a heavy zinfandel note and not really melding. An interesting effort and definitely worth a try.
