Looks like a stout. Aroma of loam, wood, chocolate and a bit of fruit. Grape/wine notes are stronger in the taste but still quite light.

Lutz2jm (120) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2014
On tap at wine 101 in wake forest. Not as sweet as I thought it would be and I was happy about that. Overall a great stout that does not overpower your tastebuds.

unclemike (2269) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 20, 2014
poured a very dark brown with a medium light brown head. Aroma of leather, meat, roasted malt, caramel, wood, with a lot of grape/fruit in the finish. Not sure what the grape addition and wood aging added, but the final product was solid. Fairly roasted and leathery up front, gives way to a more vinous note, slightly sugary finish. A solid beer.

Leighton (11319) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2014
Draft at Thirsty Monk during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours red brown with a creamy, tan head. Tasty stuff with light smoked malts, burnt sugar, cocoa. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish with burnt sugars, well toasted bread, chocolate. Nice.

phaleslu (6607) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Draft at The Thirsty Monk. Pours a deep coffee brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, chocolate, earth, and dusty oak; not much of the grape juice is noticeable. Flvaor of chocolate, cola, toasted malts, earth, and burnt sugar. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Smooth and a little dusty and earthy, but the grape juice is really subtle here.
