Ruby Brown with little head fading to nothing. Aromas of musty, earthy, horse blanket funk. Like that destroyed, beer spilled, college couch, that’s aroma gained your respect and appreciation as the spills aged, or like that second whiff you take of dead deer after a first whiff leaves you appalled, this beer reminds us of our appreciation for funk. Then comes grape notes, bigger vanillas, sweetness and tart rhubarb, and cranberry juice with maybe a whiff of diacetyl--reinforced in the flavor--giving a somewhat palate expanding but understated presence. Peppery and tannic. Flavor starts like a grape soda, thin on the palate but blows up tannic, all red wine tongue and throat coating, leaving that leathery dry tongue feel I associate with reds. The almost buttery/honey sweet back note is played down by the lactic (and maybe acetic) acid presence, both which play up the beers Gamey meat pairings. Along with lactic textures and almost vinegary notes, earthy soil, a touch cheesy (running aged goat cheeses). Grapes play a big role in flavors initial pop, which includes a touch of acidity sourness upfront, but mellows into those mouth covering spicy, peppery, tannic redwine notes. Any talk of butyric acid playing a role in this beers I believe is mislead. If anything I believe the capric acid and maybe some lacto give a firm cream to it, gives a goat cheese, smelly work socks smell too it, but upon this second tasting (this tasting being my second opening of this brew), the goat cheese funk has become slightly more subtle and made room for the growing tartness and apparent acidity.

McNeillR (2232) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Rich bright vinious red, headless. Warming wine nose, juicy. Similarly excellent initial taste, soft and cherry plum tartness. Chummy mouthfeel, very easy going mouthfeel without being overly rich or tart. Finishes a soft tartness.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Another huge thanks to Armin! Bottle pours deep burnt ruby with an off-white head. Aroma reminds me of a freshly dumped Lodi Zin barrel (including the slight alc twinge), even though I can definitely get the Cab presence. Notes of black cherry, raspberry, caramel, plum, tobacco, and oak. Flavor is tart with additional notes of vanillin, pepper, and a definite red wine presence. Overall body is moderate, tannic, and the finish is dry. I know that a lot of people don’t seem to be "fans" of this one, but I can really appreciate what they accomplished here. This one really blurs the lines and boundaries of beer/wine.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour tart apple aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tart & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & tart finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.
