4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at The Livery 9th Anniversary party. Pours is a hazy amber, maroon hues, small bubbly head. Aromas of cherry chapstick, wet oak, cobweb and a light spice. Taste is loaded with tart cherry flavors. I wish a higher carbonation would have pushed them further. Still, the mouthfeel was of a nice, medium-bodied beer. Plenty of tartness and acidity creep into the finish. More oak, cherry and funk culminate in a harmonious finish. Great stuff!

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2015 Draft to snifter at The Livery. Looks good; a hazy dark amber with off-white lacing. Smells good too; oaky and mildly funky with a nicely balanced cherry presence. Tastes like it smells with a surprisingly smooth mouthfeel, especially considering the abv. Good stuff!
