If being transparent is a thing, this beer is not that. Dark as night in no direct light, in some a slight brown - with a thin opaque lacing on top with lots of bubbles that diminish quickly. It smells like sour raspberry- woody bourbon. Slight astringency comes through and pierces the back sinuses like a fat glass of Pinot Noir.
This beer tastes nothing like what I expected. Huge jammy, red wine-esque qualities with major sourness. This beer might've been a porter in a past life, but now these notes are well hidden in the background giving way to fresh berries and bourbon. Great carbonation and plays well with my tongue.
This beer was a lot better than I thought it was going to be, and it's drinkability is impressive. Glad I was able to try!
