Bottle shared by Darrell. Thanks man!
The beer is dark, chestnut brown with hints of ruby. The beige head is thin and fades almost immediately. The aroma offers oak, cherries, sweet cherry juice. The flavor brings a blend of sweet and tart cherries, along with some oak. Tannic throughout. Low carbonation. Slightly puckering finish. A good sipping beer, similar to a nice wine.
