4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Grey waxed bomber from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours hazy copper with a yellowish beige head. Aroma is mildly vinous. Almost fresh grape. Full bodied. Flavor is red berry, light oak, mild treacle, alcohol. Thereís heat, but itís a flavor adjunct. Not annoying. Then a good amount of fresh fruit pops up. Almost green in character. The red berry seems to be part of a lot of fruit. Itís somewhat malty, but the brown sugar aspect is not what is commonly encountered. This is sort of a mild IPA/barleywine cross. Itís extremely delicious.

On tap at Baileyís Taproom. First rating of this! Pours a deep brown and reddish color with a small beige head. The aroma is berries, toffee, heat and wood. The flavor is nearly dominated by sweet vinous wine notes, toffee, light chocolate, some heat, berries, a fluffy palate. Quite nice. Pretty easy to drink.
