3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery - this is way better than the base beer, mostly because it is not nearly as sweet - having the sweetness out of the way allows some of the other character to shine through, especially the dark fruit character (plum, raisin) - light tannins and some bretty notes of leather - the alcohol burn is still a bit high, but this is pretty tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Vintage 6/7, pours a dark reddish brown with a thin off white head,the aroma has almost wine characteristics at first, dark fruit and a little bit of barrel comes through, not all that funky smelling, the flavor has a tart and fruity front with a dry finish, the dark fruits still show in the finish, interesting beer, I like they are trying stuff like this.
