3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a hazy dark brown to black body and a small, dense, light beige head. Lightly vinegar-ish aroma with lots of dried fruits. Some notes of chocolate and coffee. Itís full bodied and quite tart, pleasantly carbonated. Dried fruits, figs and prunes, roasted notes and a tart lemony touch. Lasting finish. Well worth a revisit this one. 130807

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft at the brewpub. It pours a nice dark reddish brown with almost no head. Aroma is awesome with black current and tart cherry fruit and some light notes of balsamic, funk and dark malts. No roasted malt. The flavor is tart and leathery with black cherry, balsamic and perceptible roasted malt in a funky finish. Great complex tart dark fruit character. Loved it.

Poured an almost pitch black color with one finger of khaki-white head when I got it. Nice layered lacing. Minimal retention on the top.
Smelled sour cherry, tart, Sweet Tarts, black cherries, bourbon, barrel-aged and raspberry.
Tasted similar to the smell with a stronger alcohol feel. Got tart, Sweet Tarts, strong background, barrel-aged, raspberry, dark cherry, bourbon and faint Cherry Coke Zero.
Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
Another great beer. Russian River just does everything right.
