UPDATED: FEB 28, 2016 Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Brownish colored beer with a khaki head. Tangy grape and black cherry nose. A lot of oak, slight char, and lemon juice. Pretty funky and vinous. Almost a fruit leather thing to it. Slight sweetness of caramel and vanilla on the tongue followed by plenty of acidity, grape skin, and oak. Drying finish. Not bad.
