Bottled, served in a triple karmilet tulip, 2012 vintage.

Opaque burgundy with a little ruby light on edge, thin cream head on edges with moderated retention and bubbly lacing.

Moderate potency aroma with oak, vanilla, and sour cherry notes.

Hint of vanillin touches my tongue first then overwhelmed with tart cheeries, fresh, creamy, finish with surprising strong oak character. This beer packs a punch considering how inexpensive and readily available it is...maybe I should shut up and just buy them all...

Mouthfeel is medium body, a bit wet, dry talc finish.

Amazing beer at price point of 8-9 clams. I will snag this anytime I see it. A benchmark for this style as others have mentioned.
