3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a dark bronze body with a miniscule, fast disappearing white head. Aroma is dark fruits, raisins, prunes, apricot, sour vinous tones, hints of red berries, balsamic and red wine. Taste is sour red fruits, prunes, cherries, leather, raisins, mild balsamic, citric acid and hints of wood, red wine and oaky tannins. Medium body, soft yet prickly carbonation. Extremely complex, but in this case I think the complexity (of which I am usually a big fan) kinda kills the beer in a way; it gets too much in too little space and the whole thing feels more like a wine with a hint of beer. Decent, but not amazing.
