Bottle. Aroma of grapes and oak. Body is dark cloudy brown,red with no head. Flavor is grapes, oak. Almost acidic palate but a long lingering sour and tartness that it is balanced.

Almost black with a minimal head. Sour with vinegar, licorice, oak and some hints of red wine. I was not that impressed by this one.

Initially this tastes like something you find on aisle 8 at Lowe’s if you drank it instead of putting on your walls. As it warms it gets better... a little bit but you can eat white Elmer and get the same experience.

On keg in Torst, Brooklyn, rated in November. Opaque reddish to black, off white bubbles head which dissipates quickly. Nose is balsamic vinegar, sour and tart, berry, caramel then there’s some chocolate and toasted and roasted malt in there somewhere, apple. Taste is balsamic vinegar, apple, tart, sour lactobacillus, roasted malt, red wine tannins, chocolate. Vinegar dominating but it’s actually very nicely balanced.

Beer Street, Brooklyn tap: pours brown with a small head. Aroma is pretty crazy. Lots of wine, chocolate, vinegar, and wine. Taste is different than the aroma... Mostly just weaker. Light chocolate notes. Quite aour. Light vinegar. Low carbonation. Not bad.

500ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika in February 2013. Stored in my cellar and shared with Finn and Vegard (untappd) at post Christmas gathering. Naked black surface. Deep ruby-dark in body colour. Oak and tart berries on the nose. Taste of dark caramel, black currant, oak, and dried fruits. Acidity of fruit and berries to a drying finish. Well balanced. Tasty stuff, perfect for sharing (Tromsø, 30.12.2015).
