Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - MAR 12, 2013
Alla spina. Color mogano con sottile schiuma beige; aroma acidulo, dolciastro e pungente con sentori di spezie, frutta candita, vino bianco, lievito e zucchero caramellato. Gusto agro-dolce, ampio, complesso e ben strutturato, note vinose, acetiche, fruttate con un finale debolmente luppolato dove si avvertono maggiormente sentori più legnosi e "asciutti" al palato. Birra complessa e perfettamente bilanciata, eccezionale.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2013
On tap at the Thirsty Monk. Pours a clear deep, dark ruby with just a thin wispy head. Cherries are very prominent in the aroma along with some funkiness and a little bit of wood. More cherry and dark fruit in the flavor along with a healthy dose of alcohol and some funk. Hints of molassas and brown sugar along with a moderate tartness leading to a slightly sticky finish. Overall, an interesting but pretty heavy beer. Not one I would enjoy very often but I’m glad I got to try it.

IPA_PAL (7) - New York, USA - FEB 17, 2013 does not count
Tap at spuyten duyvil.. Pour is a deep Indian red with a thin collar of white head.. Moderate lacing. Smell is cherry, plum, slight vinous, and light vinegar. Taste is sweet cherry, plum.. Tart with a dry vinous finish.. Bite very similar to a Sauvignon blanc.. Light crisp mouthfeel.. Very well done and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
