(Served in a teku)

A- This beer pours a dense walnut brown body with an auburn glow at the base and a thick sticky off-white head that pulls up into a meniscus and has some nice lacing with each sip.

S- The dry woody toffee aroma has some dark red wine hints to it as it opens and some fruity hints that take on a bit of plum quality. There is a banana and clove note in the finish aswell.

T- The delicate blend of dark fruit and toffee are soft and have a plum and raisin character if anything. The finish is a herbaceous slightly bitter note but it remains soft. As the beer opens more hints of flavor come through with some citrus rind and circus peanut notes being notable.

M- The medium mouthfeel is followed by a soft fizz and an alcohol warmth.

O- There is a fullness to the flavor but there is a delicate depth to the flavors aswell. It is a nice American dubble and I'm not sure what flavors the schisandra fruit contributed but I couldn't pull it out specifically.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: Brown with beautiful ruby highlights. Scant light brown head that dissipated quickly.

Aroma: Mainly sweet fruit with some candy aroma.

Taste: A rather thick sweet taste predominates, with raisin. There is slight funk and sourness. There is also a hint of bourbon and oak and a very slight alcohol heat.

Mouthfeel: Not too notable. A little light in body. The level of carbonation is fine.

Overall: This is an OK beer. Not sure if the schisandra contributes anything that adds to the beer. The touch of raisin reminds me of Raison D'Être. I would drink this again if offered but probably won't seek it out.
