3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thnx to flunkminnow, shared at Epic Sour Sourpuss Tasting. Pours a black beer with a thin off white, beige head on top. No light shining trough. Aroma is funky coffee, barrel, vineous and has some red fruits. Flavor is light sour and vineous with big barrel influences. The wine barrel aging gives this beer a funky, hard to describe note of which Iím not sure what it is. Very strange and interesting in a good way.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at the epic sour sourpuss tasting. Pours near black with medium beige head. Aroma is vinous, light chocolate, a little light generally. Everything explodes out in the palate, initially hitting with massive milk chocolate covered Turkish delight, followed by big red vinous aspects, roast and caramel. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter, a little acidic. Lingering sweetness and dry in the finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some strong red wine and grape notes as well as some caramel and brown sugar. The flavor is similar. I get some tannic red wine notes as well as some oak, caramel and toffee. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Murky black pour with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, oak, red wine, tannins and dark fruit. Roasted malts and chocolate up front in the mouth fading into oak, touches of vanilla and ends on a dark fruit wine character. Medium think bodied. Pretty solid.

Cork and caged bottle thanks to a trade with abslyde! Pours an opaque black with lacy tan head that leaves light web. Aroma is slightly funky sour, dark fruit, nice chocolate and roast behind. Taste follows, slight cherry notes and a tart finish. Really nice, love it.

Opaque black pour, beady lace. Unique aroma: vinous yet roasty, light tartness, enough stouty character to keep things interesting while imparting plenty of wine-y notes. I'm a fan.
