12ozs bottle. Black stuff. Lots of sour fruit with a good dose of wine and oak in the aroma. Slight tart chocolate flavor with a hight level of acidity and well-hidden alcohol. Vinous and fruity with a big oaky zin character. A little bit of peanut butter flavor. The roast doesn’t really get in the way of the acidity and it works pretty well. Cool stuff.
[9/7/2016] Bottle at Churchkey : Dark brown body with no head. Nose is sweet and plummy. Sour taste, with fruits, and well-balanced. Slightly fruity finish. solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2016

Bottle to snifter (shared by arminjewell). Looks solid; a slightly translucent darm amberish brown with bubbly off-white lacing. Smells solid; nice and vinous with a pleasantly vinous presence that’s discernibly zin by the pepper. Tastes like it smells with some earthiness and a bit of red wine vinegar as well. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied and pleasant. Tasty stuff.

12 oz bottled 8/17/11. Color is a deep mahogany. Very vineous. Earthy. Walnuts. Red apple skin. Slight sour, odd aftertaste. slowrunner77 (12895) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 17, 2015
very wine line and not as sour or acidic as most of the Avery BA project...though it’s likely a several year old bottle. Seemed tamer, with nice tannins, fruit and leather. Marheb (6193) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 3, 2015
(En dégustation au Stone Sour Fest 2015): Union fruitée vineuse impeccable avec des tannins actifs. La quantité d’alcool est adéquate pour la charge des saveurs, on pourrait parler d’un certain équilibre. Elle a fière allure pour son age. BiiruBierBeer (1059) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 3, 2015
White wine smell. Taste is a moderate amount of sourness, grapes, white wine, and brett. vtafro (7444) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2014
(Backlog) Draft at avery event at blind tiger. Dark pour with no head. Dark cherry, tart fruit, oak aromas. Wine, dark fruit, oak and tartness come in stronger on the finish.
