Cloudy deep amber with a medium beige head. Aroma had roasted malt, caramel, dark overripe fruits, yeast and hints of grapes. Flavor came out sweet with roasted malt, caramel, overripe plums, figs, dates, wood and grapes. Finished sweet and full. Not bad, sweet though.

Reddish brown pour, soapy white head. I get lots of bourbon, dark fruit, and not much grapes at all. Flavor has some fruitiness, but grapes? Maybe dark black grapes? Booze, brown sugar, syrup. Not bad.

Thanks to beerlando. Lots of vanilla extract, bourbon and wood. Not a whole lot of grapes. Actually, I wouldn’t know they were in there if the label didn’t tell me. The flavors are good, though.

Bottle. Accidentally left in freezer over night. Frozen Solid, then thawed. No visable leakage....though its not pouring with much of any head. Color of the beer is a red raped amber. Nose is uninspiring maltiness of the faceless variety..some basement mildew notes from the cheap oak, caramelized sugar, and some essences of what may be some grapes. Flavors combine sugary, caramelly malts with a grapey fruitiness and a somewhat toasty but stale oakiness. Alcohol is remarkably hidden, but then so is any hint of refinement and complexity. Tastes too much like burnt sugar and diluted grape juice.

A: Pours a deep amber with a nice solid off white head. Wonderful retention and a nice smattering of lace all the way down the glass.
S: The grapes can be picked up in the aroma. They are more earthy red than white. The beer is sweet and yeasty. Lots of candy malt and spice as well.
T: The grapes are there in the flavor as well. The grapes add a bit of tartness to a wonderful sweet brew. Sweet bready malt, toffee, and caramel stand out. Subtle spices and Belgian yeast come through as well.
M: On the lighter side of medium, mosty sweet with a bit of dryness in the finish.
