A: 4 finger head. Almost nearly opaque dark red/brown.

S: Dark berry, earthy, bready, wheat. Very complex. Some sweetness.

T: Dark berry, wheat bread dominate. Ripe banana, plum, malt, sweet yeast are there too. There is some alcohol burn on the back end.

M: Creamy smooth.

O: This was an impressive and very complex beer.

Rating: A+
