3.9/5  rDev -1%

Listed as 10% ABV on the label. Had this on-tap while in Oklahoma City and enjoyed it quite a bit, this is my first of two bottles that I purchased out there.

Appearance - Black pour into a snifter with a surprisingly tall tan head. Good retention and decent lace.

Smell - Raisins, red wine grapes and berries make for a pretty nice dark fruit/tart wine feel. Blends well with a roasty chocolate base, which is less prevalent, but makes itself known.

Taste - A touch more red wine-centric with lots of grape, dark fruit, light tartness, oak barrel. The stout is more buried here, it leans mostly towards roasted/char with some sweetness and licorice there as well. Kinda reminds me of a Belgian quad.

Mouthfeel - Smooth with some heft to it, medium carbonation, definitely a dry winy feel . Some alcohol warmth but really pretty easy-going for 10%.

Overall - The appearance hinted towards infection, and with the mixed experiences I've heard about with this beer I wouldn't of been surprised, luckily this bottle seems to be alright - it's on the tart side but I'm thinking it's just really heavy on the red wine barrel. I would've liked more stout presence personally but the flavors from the wine barrel are quite nice and it's very enjoyable overall. It will be interesting to see how the other bottle ages.
