3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml. Lightly foggy copper-red with a lasting film on top. Nose is raisin, red wine, oak and faintly tart dark cherry toffee. Tastes of red wine, cherry and dark toffee. Finish has some oak and earthy spice notes. Quickly turns to mostly red wine flavor. Medium body is balanced and smooth with a medium carbonation. Not bad, but too much barrel on this one, tastes mostly like a lower abv red wine.

Draft WOB, St. Petersburg. Clear amber color in a chalice with fast dying head, aroma is weak red grapes, Belgain yeast, sugar. Flavor is very light red grapes. Barrel doesn’t show up much at all. Yeast is the base of the brew, sweet grape finish is light. Thin body.

A light barrel aroma. Taste light sourness. But intentional. Sweet but over carbonated nice head.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
A vinous backbone supplements a sugar sweetness and dark fruit aromas. A clear dark amber pour with a thin white ring and no lacing precedes a taste that is very of similar to the nose. Vinous, wood, raisins and plums with a suggestion to some sourness. Reminds me somewhat of Dogfish Head’s Sixty- One, only slightly more subdued. Light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, I like this type of beer - somewhat of a cross between beer and wine.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured hazy dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate complex dark fruit and yeast aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Moderate dark sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is an interesting beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not an abbey dubble! No Belgium yeast aroma or flavor. Cloudy Amber with definite oak. My guess is oak aged amber.
