500 mL bottle with black wax @ Steve_0 during my 10k tick fest. Thanks Dave! Pine, dark chocolate, mint, light funk, and some grape in the nose. Somewhat tart. Heavy roasted chocolate malty, light caramel, oak, red wine, funk, light lemon, and mild tart flavor. Some burnt aftertaste. Cool.

Bottle @ Stephen’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks! Pours a clear dark brown appearance with a light brown head. Red wine, light whiskey, tart grape, somewhat herbal, a touch funky aroma. Whiskey, dark black cherry, red grape, grainy woody, mild vinegar flavor. The barrel characteristics really dominate over the base flavor.
