Bottle... Pours murky and dark mahogany with no head. The bouquet is an intermingling of caramel, soil, sour cherries and lactic acidity. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor presents acute acidity, sour cherries, a light splash of acetic acid, woodiness and caramel. Finishes tart and dry. sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2014
