330ml bottle poured into a snifter.
A - Dark red in color with quite a haze to it. The head was tan with big bubbles but dissipated right away. No lacing.
S - Unrippened raspberries come to mind first off. Not getting any sweetness. Maybe a little woody character. Wine like, some raisins in there. I don't get any oxidation. Alcohol is apparent.
T - The malts hit right away with a nutty flavor. Little bit of initial sweetness but short. Alcohol is all over the flavor. Midpalate is very wine like, dry with complex red fruit qualities. Finishes very warm and the alcohol leaves a spicy warm lasting impression.
M - Medium to full bodied, low carbonation, semi-dry.
O - A little disappointed in this beer to be honest. Though very complex, it lacked some dimension in that it starved off all sweetness, I expected all these flavors and a little more. I thought it would hold a tight head longer. Still a good beer but maybe I was just overhyped for it.
