3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep umber with touches of ruby color and a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is roasted malt, sour cherry, acetic vinegar and a touch of woody funk. The palate follows with a focused palate that is true to style with nice tart cranberry and cherry mingling with brown nut like malt structure. Dry finish that lingers of wood, vanilla and vinous grapes. Thanks adnielsen !

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by BeerandBlues2: pours a clear deep amber mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted dark caramel nose with lots of tart cherries and vinous oak. Starts with good effervescence and sweet biscuity malts with good amount of vinous tartness and oaky complexity before a drier slightly puckering finish. True to style and very enjoyable.
