A - Served a dark black color with some hints of purple-red coming in around the edges. Finger of red-tinted chocolate colored head that faded slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma was dominated by strong sour Pinot Noir grapes. There was also a bit of roasted chocolate malts and some booze in the background as well.
T - Started off with a strong punch of sour Pinot Noir grapes with some acidity. Shortly after, the roasted chocolate malts started to come in a bit. Through the middle, the sourness mellows a bit and transitions to a bit of tartness. The roasted malt flavor also gets a bit stronger as well. The finish is big again on the sour grape, with some booze and roasted malt in the background.
M - Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation. Felt fairly smooth, even with all the sourness, with some acidity from the grapes.
D - Pretty drinkable. Not quite the most balanced barrel aged beer with the effect of the Pinot Noir barrels maybe coming through a bit too much. That being said, there was a lot to like and the Pinot Noir flavors did work fairly well with the base stout.
Serving type: on-tap
