Amazing full head with gracious holding power. Thick and chewy. Lots of sticky body.

Lots of smooth well plowed grape and plum notes. Grassy and sweet. It's like a circus.

Flavors are full of tobacco, leather, raisin, low heat. Great carbonation is highly vocal. sweetness is dry and pronounced. Muted tartness, intrigued to see what time will do.

One solid ass brew! Highly recommended, i'll be back for more at $6/per. Price is right for cellaring.

A bit active when I popped the cap, the pour was very slow but still very foamy. Deep brownish red in colour.

It smells very yeasty and dark fruity. A semi aweetness here that crosses over to a light tartness.

Plums, raisins, black cherry tartness, yeasty. My, this is complex but there's a symphony going on.

Medium bodied and co2'd, some heat from the alcohol but not to an extreme.

It finishes decidedly on the dry side. Very very good.

On tap at the Thirsty Monk (AVL).
Deep red-amber body with a small head.
Interesting and appealing aroma; hints of brandy, wine and vague ripe fruits. Mild and subtle alcohol esters for 12% ABV.
Flavor. Fruity; slightly tartness with a touch of sweetness and bitterness. Moderately strong and mildly funky flavor seems to reflect red wine barrel aging.
