750mL bottle poured into taster
Pours an inky black color with a solid crop of lightly tanned head resting on top. Retains nicely, leaving a coating of film and a few spots of lacing on the glass.
Tart and vinous in the nose with touches of red grape skin. Some red wine notes and oak with a roasty malt touch. Sour and faint sweetness.
Pretty sour right up front with pleasant red wine and grape notes. Vinous and earthy with oak and soft tannins. Touches of roasted malt and faint sweetness in the backbone. Increasingly tart on the back end, but still fairly mellow. Finishes sour and dry.
Fuller medium body, higher carbonation, a bit creamy and dry on the tongue. The presence of Rapture is felt a bit in this beer, and I definitely enjoyed the red wine characteristics. The sourness isn't over the top which meshes well with the darker flavors.
