4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle courtesy moejuck. Darkest rust/ruby/brown with just a few tan bubbles. Sweet and tart cherries- juice, flesh, and skins- some barrel funk, and subtle notes of roasty malt in the aroma. Smells great. Flavor adds a ton of vinous dark fruit, earthy cocoa, oxidation, tannic oak, and hints of vanilla. Medium body, smoother than balanced. The low carbonation works very well with the tart and tannic nature of this brew. Dry, sour, tannic finish. Great brew.

Thanks to Shane (hophead84) and Javier for both bringing this bottle to Woodshop 5.0. Pours a medium cola brown with a reddish tint and a small off white head, some spotty lacing. Great nose of sweet and sour cherries with some roasted malts in the background. Lightly acidic on the palate with nice cherry flavors and a long semi sweet finish, great stuff!
