3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12.7 oz bottle to oversized snifter. Looks good; a cloudy brown with good carbonation and off-white lacing. Smells good too; sweet, malty, and tart/funky with notes of the wine barrels present. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as good, and with a fairly dry, average mouthfeel. Still, really pleasant beer; just not worth $1/oz.
