3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Pours lightly hazed and brown with burnt orange highlights and no head. The aroma is a mélange of chocolate and caramel with black cherries and a lesser note of red wine vinegar. Full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is both tart and boozy with notes of roastiness, fruitiness and a light splash of red wine vinegar. Tart, acetic finish. Amazingly drinkable considering the high level of alcohol. Thanks to ctipping for popping the top off this one!

It’s full-bodied and quite warming, with a soft carbonation. Caramel, raisins and some balsamic vinegar, with a good berry touch. Lasting finish with caramel, vinegar, dark berries and raisins. A beer that hides the alcohol very well, and tastes quite nice too. 150228
