3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Poured a brown color with an off white head. This one grew on me the longer I drank it...needed a few to really open up. Cranberries, some wood, caramel, and some funkiness. Subtle and soft at first and again, as it opened up, got much better.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to MrChopin for this one!! Strange aroma of olives, salt, cod, and touches of tart cranberry fruit. Flavor brings much of the same, with odd minerality and salty olive presence. Just bizarre.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle shared by MrChopin: Pours a clear dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted malty nose with some tart fruity notes and a touch of vinous oak. Starts with pretty good fullness and fine carbonation with a touch of sweet pale malts and vinous fruitiness before a tart balance in the drier finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.
