Chocolate...raspberries (from the red wine funk smell that i get ...its great warming up...funkier than your average red wine barrel beer...almost moldy/cheesy)...slight oak, slight oat, hint of coffee (small hint when colder really)...even slight citrus...not crazy bursting flavors but nice complexity. A bit more entertaining on the nose than in the mouth...but a great creamy mouthfeel and a unique beer on its own that is worth trying/aging. Carbonation stays nice throughout the beer warming up, and leaves a nice "tannic" feel in your mouth when warmed to 50s.

Oil black body with a big, dark tan head. Notes of chocolate and dark, red fruit in the aroma. The flavor is full of vinous character with a fair amount of grain bitterness and a coffee like roast character. Medium thick body, slightly high carbonation and a dry finish. The aroma character is great, but it doesn't pull through in the flavor. The lack of sweetness emphasizes the bitterness which really clashes with the fruit, a bit more sweetness and body would go a long way.
