Pours a dark cola brown with a thin khaki head. Vinegar nose, mild toasty malt, port wine. Flavor is sweet and tart, with an acetic sourness and a tannic grapiness. Lots of grapes actually. Finish is acidic and woody with moderate astringency. An almost citric sourness comes in toward the finish. It has some good qualities but overall it seems disjointed due to an abundance of tannins that sort of truncates the flavor.
