  • Pours opaque with an inch of dark tan foam that is tightly packed in spite of the medium sized bubbles inter mingling. Retention is dead on while lacing is micro-dots and sporadic.

    Aroma seems to have cherries up front. More inspection shows tartness, earthy darkness, wood, spice, and even a touch of vinegar.

    Taste is a combination of cherry tartness that builds throughout and lingering late in the back of the mouth. Earth and wood add elements of complexity while a spice flavor tricks the mouth and adds the finish. Vinegar and sherry can be heavy at times.

    No carbonation here at all that detracts from the mouth making it medium.

    A nice beer but there was something in the middle of the taste I can't explain that took away from the over good tasting experience. An interesting beer but just slightly too much vinegar for me. Enjoy!
