3.88/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Aquired from ipa247. 2008 Vintage. Consumed 5-10-2010, reviewed from notes.

Pours a dark red, almost brown color, with a big fluffy tan head. Doesn't leave a lot of lacing. Overall, a nice looking beer. In the smell, I can definitely pick up cherries, mostly dark overripe, sweet cherries. Nice and fleshy. But there is a little tarness in there. I also get a nice big whiff of gym sock. Pretty funky. The smell is pretty good. The taste, of course, starts out with cherries, and it has a bit of tartness. A nice subdued tartness, but there's enough to balance the sweetness of the fruit. The beer is not too acidic, either. The acidity is quite subdued. I can taste a little malt, and there's a slight toastiness, which is different and nice. The funkiness of the smell doesn't translate directly to the taste, but I do get some lingering funkiness, musty fruit, a little straw, and a finish that has a nice blend of sweetness and tartness. The body is medium thin, with decent carbonation. It's smooth and mellow, and the alcohol is not incredibly noticable. It's pretty good, actually a little refreshing, I'm surprised to say, and the bit of toastiness keeps it interesting, still a litle too strong and rich for another beer afterwards.
