Thanks Chris for sharing this at the annual cellar clearance...
Served in a mini-nonic pint, quick review transcribed from written notes
Dark brown with a ruby glint in the light, spotty lace around the edges, patchy surface skim. Good lasting coverage.
Weird sharp aroma, as it warms there's some vague traces of dark fruit. Tart astringent taste, tangy. Big notes of oxidation, light roast malt in the background. Must have been infected or aged too long, it's kind of gross at this point... drain pour.

A - Dark chocolate cranberry body. Thin, off-white head sits low but has nice retention and lace.

T - Hard wood, iced coffee, hazel nut, tart cherries. Dark fruits, light and mellow scotch, cherry chocolate cordials.
M - Medium-light body. Solid carbonation. Touch of water on the finish.
O - A solid offering that held up well after 7 years.
