750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown. Big khaki head. Thick collar.

Smell - Brett is strong. Musty red wine. Intensely oaky.

Taste - Brett is again the strongest flavor. The red wine is as distinct as any red wine flavor I've had in a beer. Strong oak. Dry caramel and toasty malt. Very oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Starts off crisp and the wine gets a little heavier. Well carbonated.

Overall - Good, but certainly isn't as inspired as other Side Project bottles.
