3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep burnt umber color with hints of ruby purple on the edges and a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is rustic dark grain, tar and a trace of candi sugar and vinous fruit. The palate follows the nose but is muted by a thick heavy fusel asphalt like note that is hard to get past. There is some positive things happening but overall its just alright.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown. Sweet, spicy, almost beglian nose. Very sweet in the taste but mellowed out in the nose to make a nice crinkability factor. One you can enjoy.
