3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask @ The Bruery. Damn near purple in color with no head. Smells of sweet berry jam, a light tartness, and some vanilla. Chocolate, bourbon, and a touch of booze. Fairly oak and tannin forward. Flavor is quite sweet, but also subtly tart. Lots of berry. Seedy, jammy flavor. Light astringency and tannic character on the tongue. Thick, syrupy. Chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla. Smells better than it tastes.
