Dark, murky brown color, no head.
Smells like black cherry soda. Gets a little more cherry tootsie-pop as it warns, but very spicy artificial black cherry throughout.
Tastes very much like it smells. There's a bit of astringency mid palate that kinda muddles flavor development, but does serve to give a drying impression on the finish. Not much lingering besides a slight woody bitterness... and maybe a bit of soapiness?
Overall, this one is pretty drinkable and very pleasant if you like black cherry soda.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a sniffer.
Appearance: Dark murky brownish-red with a thin tan head that quickly disperses into a thin ring around the center with patchy lacing.
Aroma: Wow Tempranillo! It's hard to tell that there is a beer in my glass because it smells so much like the wine barrel. I would prefer that aroma to be less aggressive. A touch of cherry is peaking through but it is mostly candy cherry aroma. Vanilla and oak mixed with Cinnamon and other spices from the wine.
Taste: Again mostly Tempranillo flavor with a hint of sweet cherry. Spicy with a slight tartness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body with low carbonation and a tannic mouthfeel from the grapes and barrels.
Overall: I had high hopes for this beer the the Tempranillo over powers everything. Luckily I like this wine varietal or else it would be a drain pour.
Serving type: bottle
