4.06/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Type: 765ml (25.9 oz.) bottle
Glass: Fuller’s London pint glass
From: Armada Wine & Beer Merchant in Santa Barbara, Calif.
Price: $10.99
Purchased: July 4, 2014
Consumed: July 6, 2014
Misc.: Bottled on May 7, 2013 at 8:59 a.m.

Poured a caramel amber color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Minimal retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled rather boozy up front. Also got grape, Syrah grapes, caramel, plum, slight raspberry, roasty malts, citrus notes and some bubblegum.

Tasted much better than the nose. Got grape, plum, black raspberry, caramel and honey. Got better as it went down.

Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Smooth, fruity finish.

Really enjoyed this one. Would have it again for sure.
