Keg at Beer Belly, LA. Murky dark red/brown, no head. Smells like delicious - cherries, red wine vinegar, light caramel. Light sweet darkish caramel, sour cherries, redcurrant, fruity vinegar acidity, light cheese and citrus too. Kinda short finish though. Still boss.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Ginger Man with Chris and Streets. Pours a deep, murky reddish brown body with thin lacing. Aroma is fresh, puckering tart cherries and light maple and chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium and tart with notes of sour cherries up front and dominating; backing flavors of oak, light sugar, cherry candies, light cinnamon and a wonderful tart character. This was the stand-out of the event for me.
