This beer has a very nice color, it is pleasing to the eye. It has a Nice reddish color; it almost resembles red wine when put in the light. Brother Thelonious has an Intense nose, but a smoother flavor. Oddly enough it reminds me of Sam Adam's Boston Lager...? It definitely does not taste like a 9.4%

Poured dark amber into DFH signature glass. Head is very fizzy, and quickly dissipates.

Aroma is OK, grapes, yeasty and some booze.

Mouthfeel is very good, light.

The taste is overpowered, sharp booze. It stays with you. I can pick up a little dark fruit.

Overall, this beer just isn't balanced. It gets a little better as it warms, but still not good.
