Murky brown pour with some sediment.
No real head to speak of.
aroma was nice oaky, vanilla, vinous fruit, tannic tang. Smells quite nice.
flavour was a bit underwhelming for me.
Woody, tobacco, light earthiness. dark cherry and tart grape. Decent.

Keg at The Hanging Bat. Impenetrable brown/ruby body with no head, even straight after pouring. No lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, wood and earth. Flavour of red wine, vinegar and sour berries. Thin body with a watery, slight oily texture. Light fizz. A complex beer, that’s a bit too sour and vinegar-like for my taste buds.

Thanks to Chuck! Poured medium-deep amber with a short off-white head. The aroma picked up weird musty funk and some fruity notes.. a bit warm. The flavor found sour cherries, oak notes, and funk.. spicy fruity finish. Medium-bodied with low-moderate carbonation.. tart.
