750 mL bottle. Pours a deep reddish purple. Light purple head. Looks spectacular. Smells of lots of currant, oak, and some yogurt acidity. Tastes of rich currant up front, but the sourness immediately take over. Oak and sourness with just a slight semblance of beer in the middle. Red wine builds throughout and culminates in the finish. Well carbonated. Strong sourness, but doesn’t overwhelm. Tastes very big, but I was stunned by the 11% alcohol. This has a remarkable fruit and wine flavor, but it’s just a little bit difficult to drink.

A-Pours a dark brown. Nearly no head. What are you?

S-I get some mild tartness mixed with some relative sweetness. As the previous reviewer stated, I also am reminded of cola.

T-I'd enjoy a bit more sour/tart here. Its a lingering nuance. It has some Porter and Belgian dark qualities. Also there is some dark fruits.

M-Now seeing how high the ABV is, I am surprised by its rather modest body.

O/D-Interesting but it could use a bit more 'funkification'. Definitely an interesting cup of hooch.
