4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a slightly-browned garnet color with a thin off white head and a tiny bit of lacing. Nose brings some lactic sourness, cherries, hints of dark fruits, and a bit of earth. Taste and feel add in a nice oak presence and the sourness becomes a bit more prevalent. The cherries and light malt fit well together bringing a nice bready character out. Drinks quite well; glad I got to try this one.
Serving type: on-tap

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Pours hazy ruby with virtually no head. Aroma is funky, grape, merlot. Flavor is tart with a big cough syrup taste, overly sweet with brown sugar notes and a lot hot booze in the finish. Lack of carbonation didn’t help. Needs a few years to mellow.
