3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rusty murky brown color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is deep tart cherry, cider vinegar, old wood and cocoa dust. The palate follows with lots of vinous cherry notes wet woody notes and some roasted malt, a touch a acetic burn in the throat keeps me from loving this beer but it is enjoyable.
