Looks like we have an imperial stout aged in pinot noir barrels. On-tap at Beer Revolution(Andre's choice), on to the beer:

Ink black body, topped with a thin yet creamy head. Spots of lace clings around the glass. The nose starts somewhat sour. The aromas of soured grape, oak, and toches of chocolate give this beer an interesting heads-up to what's coming next. Working into the taste, the taste is somewhat sour as well. Geapes and brownies aren't shy to show off their notes. There's a hint of coconut from the oak. The beer is medium bodied and acidic, rounding out this good sour stout.
