Dark, opaque ruby red with a one-finger off-white head, good retention and slippery lacing. Aromas of red wine grapes, oak, black cherries, tobacco leaves, leather and alcohol, all of which create a sense of strong sourness. Taste is all tartness, strong but clean, with notes of red wine, unlit cigars, oak, vanilla and berries. Medium-bodied, high carbonation, prickly and puckering mouthfeel, and a very nice tart finish.
