3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Beer Revolution. It pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is tart stone fruit with lots of red wine and hints of solvent and vinegar, although not too strong. The flavor is acidic with red wine grapes, alcohol and hints of cocoa and roast near the finish. Very warming. Not bad.
