Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 17, 2013
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.
