Bottle to snifter.

A- WB Noir pours a thick, motor oil body. No head whatsoever on this one. Light effervescent carbonation.

S- First note of something funky. Get a little bit of the red wine barrel character here with a bunch of sour notes. A little bit of cranberry shines through the muted stouts notes of chocolate, burnt toast, and smoked malts.

T- Big time funk here. Lots of metallic characters on the pallets. The faintest bit of red wine can be found if looked for.

O- Something went wrong here.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: black body with some dark brown around the edges; head is an attractive finger of brown foam. Great.

Smell: rich, dark and roasty with a very complementary sweet fruitiness. It's got some nice wood complexity as well; dang, this is a great-smelling beer.

Taste: roasty and sweet with a bit of fruitiness but not quite as rich and complex as the aroma. There's a little bit of tartness as well which sort-of works.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a good carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: outstanding aroma, although it promises a little more than the flavor delivers. Still a delicious beer, however.
