A: Dark black, with some ruby around the edges. A two finger beige head forms with good retention and lace.
S: A balsamic vinegar sweet, sour, and acidic aroma. Burnt caramel malts and sugars. Lingering acidic character. Not particularly enjoyable.
T: Up front is more of a sweet chocolate, burnt malts, light roast. Which works at odds with the sharp acidic bite. Vinegary sweet, finises with tart tannin like cherries.
M/D: A medium body with moderate carbonation. Though watery and thin. Not smooth, or crisp, just kind of blah. Certainly not something I can drink more than a few ounces of.

I never really enjoyed this, just a mess. Trying it again just confirms that it is pretty poorly made. No definition, and probably not something I am coming back to again any time soon.
