Bottle poured a deep red body with a large rocky head. The tan head reduced to a small island which clumped in the middle of the glass, yet laced reasonably. Predominant aromas of wine and rum & dark chocolate. Sour, vinous flavor with a slightly puckering metallic finish. Loved the story of the riggwelted, but this beer didn’t turn me hooves up.
