Frank (2728) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
This pours a cloudy red brown in the glass. It is spicy and dusty w/ cherries and very sweet and berry-like general with a bit of chocolate as well. Barrel aged character is relatively subdued but it is still a bit heavy and sticky for my tastes. Finishes w/ a slightly weird sort of earthy bitterness.
