3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a big fluffy light brown head that retains well and laces the glass some.
The aroma is sweet winey grapes and roast chocolate malts with some earthiness.
The flavor is sweet sugary grapes and vinous alcohol with some roast malt that gives it some bitterness in the finish. It’s a little chalky and acidic. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with sharp bubbly carbonation.
Overall, it’s interesting with the winey grapes, but a bit off.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is immediately fruity and almost reminiscent of a sour with strong grape tones and a slightly mustiness. Pours a brown nearly dark tea color. Taste is totally different from the aroma. It’s smooth malty and somewhat chocolaty with barely any fruit notes except on the end. Finishes faintly fruity with a smooth mouth feel. Really good but can’t help but think that this might age or evolve in to something really special--even a sour perhaps?
