3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Beautiful deep very dark red chestnut body, very little sparkle and a big bubble and right almost white head; The nose has all the rights the share between them are just a little wrong, the aroma reminds me very much of Alexander just with a little to little cherry and a little to much oak, actually quite a bit to much oak; The body has the same experience, the oak tannins are so very apparent that the beer gets the fell of a very cheap oversees Chardonnay, if not for the tannins I think it would have been a quite nice experience, light acid fresh with some malt fill; A very long finish that is greatly overshadowed by the oak tannins the high amount of alcohol is not adding any quality either, the light acid is very pleasant here too but somehow it seems they are more from the grapes that has been in the barrels then from the cherries, lots of oak aromas. This could have been a great beer with less time in the barrels and a lower ABV.
