3.13/5  rDev -24.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A: Poured into a tulip with just a whisper of a head. Dark, ruby red color. Not much evidence of carbonation.

S: Winey aromas from a distance. Cherry and stone fruit. Whiff of strawberry. Promise of nice acidity.

T: Initially dominated by wood, followed by a rich earthy flavor. There's some dark fruit, mostly prunes. Not all that tart for the most part, except for a spike just as you swallow. Finishes with almost a butterscotch / caramel that's as much feel as taste. Later sips start to reveal some spice.

M: Practically flat, would definitely like this to be a bit more lively. Full bodied, but finishes somewhat sticky (see taste comment). Not at all what I'd expect from this style.

As the beer warms a bit, the wood becomes more pronounced, and the finish less sticky. At the same time, the lack of carbonation becomes more of a letdown.

Glass #2 from the bottle picks up some bitterness and lots of floaties.

O: Something of a disappointment. Not bad, but not up to the hype.
