The appearance was very dark muddy brown with a centimeter of head. It smells fruity and nutty with the addition of booze on the nose. It tasted great, fig, plum, and a nicely balance hops and booze. Very earthy. Overall, great with bbq as I had it... Ready to have another bottle.

Deep ruby red color. Very little head. No legs or lacing.

Tons of earthy, malty, agave, raisin (tons), vanilla, spice, pear, red apple, ginger, red wine, slight tartness.

Sweetness is mellowed by great boozieness. Amazingly blended. Nearly perfect in mouthfeel, but slight sharpness overtakes at the the on set. A bit raisin and green. Lots going on. Booze is forward, yet mild. Carbonation is very light and compliments nicely. Red wine barrel is nice.

Dances a smooth sweet line. Just before you see the booze the sweetness kicks in. A damn fine brew. I would love to treat this brew again. Highly recommended. Thanks for the share Bigaltemple!!
