750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Big off-white head. Thick collar. Wispy surface.

Smell - Whoa, funky. Oak. Funky yeastiness. Really oaky. Some bourbon and a strange red wine aroma. Roasty and a little grassy.

Taste - Very oaky. Very roasty. A bit of dark fruit. Kinda sweet. Bitter roasty finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - The oak is funky and weird. My kneejerk reaction to the first sniff was that something was off, but it never panned out and it's just odd.
