2015 Project
No bottling date, but bought in late 2016

Appearance- Pours a deep dark mahogany color, ruby red highlights, fairly transparent when held to light. Finger thick, soapy, off-white colored head. Small amount of spotty head lacing on glass.

Aroma- Tart cherries, blackberries, grapeskins, mildly sour fruit notes. Soft oak, earthy and funky, vinous wine notes. Very mild bourbon notes and some hints of vanilla.

Taste- Juicy, tart cherries, berries, sour fruits. Rich malty and fruity sweetness balances tartness. Vinous, red wine notes, oaky, earthy. Soft, sweet bourbon, vanilla. Finishes w/ slight acidity and crisp tart fruitiness.

Feel- Medium bodied, crisp tartness but not overly sour, has a balancing sweetness throughout. Crisp, clean carbonation, palate cleansing.

Overall- Beer shows such a bold tartness and sweetness, yet excellently balanced and restrained. Wine and bourbon barrels come through with such a soft touch, neither overpowering eachother or the beer, but adding such depth and complexity. An excellently crafted beer.
