4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
[On-tap at BVB] Pours red with a nice, long-lasting beige head. Aroma is quite sweet and hard to peg--candyish, caramel, a little citrus mixed in (orange). Nicely balanced. The taste is huge on strawberry jam. There is also caramel, a slight nuttiness, and mild alcohol. As it warms, the alcohol really comes out though, and gets a little distracting. Medium mouthfeel, incredibly smooth, and has an average length finish. Overall, very solid, just gets a little hot. Would be a great sipper in the winter.
