4.21/5 rDev +5.8%
Opens with a faint pop. Pours a very effervescent ebony with 3+ fingers of mocha colored head. Decent lacing, pretty good head retention & nice viscosity
S: Black currant, hints of baker's chocolate & red grapes
T: Baker's chocolate, raisins & black currant, plus red grapes up front & quite a bit of oaky dryness. Slight boozey fig notes as this warms, along with a touch of iron & Baker's chocolate as this warms, faint coffee notes as well & a touch of raisin. Finishes dry, figgy, oaky & with just a bit of coffee & bit more red grape, maybe even a bit of Concord
MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, nice silkiness too
Pretty good, as others have raised their prices, these Woodcuts don't seem so dear. I will probably some of #8 unless it it's a strange one... No mention of grapes, but this screams out loud to me, very true to style. A sipper to be sure, very complex

Bottle # 00148 - 13
A - Pours a black body, but doesn't seem too thick. It develops a one finger dark khaki head that sticks around and has great lacing.
S - Good amount of fresh oak that really cuts through the roasted malts and dark fruits. A bit of coffee and licorice as well.
T - Dark chocolate intertwined with fresh oak. Roasted malts come off a bit sweet, there's some vanilla and some licorice to boot.
M - Medium to full bodied and a low carbonation that's really tight. Creamy and easy drinking. Minimal alcohol burn.
O - It's legit on the fresh oak and does not back down from it. I wish it was dialed back a little bit, but nothing wrong with going full boar.
