Pours a dark red with an off white 1 finger head, decent retention, carbonation looks thin.
really fruity, grapes and raisins come through well, which is weird because the first time i had this beer it smelled totally different. Some brown sugar notes as well as almost a short bread like aroma tucked away behind everything else.
Way different from the first one i had in flavors as well... Fruity in flavor grapes and cherry coming through well, hops are surprisingly strong and balance out the sweetness from the fruit flavors well. Shortbread like malty finish and the bitterness last for a while after the sip. The alcohol tries to hide but after the 4th or 5th sip the warming lets you know it there.
Heavier in body but keeps from being syrupy, the light carbonation is just enough to give it a lighter feel on the palate.
Tasty, different and pretty drinkable, i couldnt finish a six pack in a night or anything but i could definitely have a few.
