Pours a dark ruby red and brown. Once the head disappeared, had a bit of a wine appearance.

Light sweet candy malt, faint dark fruit. Hints of dry oak.

First thoughts, double red ale that has lots its hops but retained a nice complexity. Very malt forward, light citrus flavor. Slightly abrasive properties. The cab wine barrel aging added some interesting highlights. Red fruit and light dry oak.

Very easy, mild to moderate carbonation. Sweetness, lightly dry.

At first I was unsure but as my glass emptied, I yearned for more. It just worked.

A: Pours an incredibly deep red color similar to a dark cherry cabinet. Clear, but such a deep color that it is still hard to see through the beer. Moderate carbonation. Incredibly thick and creamy head that was 2" thick and took over five minutes to disappate after a vigorous pour. Really nice retention and lacing. After I finished my first pint, the lacing remained until I rinsed the glass later that evening.

S: Mmm, love the smell. Malty sweetness with just a hint of oak and wine. Getting a little chubby as I sit here and observe it.

T: Well, this one is a winner in my book. A beautiful blend of sweetness, tanginess, and oak. There is even a bit of longlasting bitterness as the taste fades. I can't really tell if that is the hops or the wine barrel. Unlike others, I don't get alot of citrus,but I do get just a hint of wine flavor. Complex and subtle at the same time if that makes any sense at all. A full flavored red that packs a wallop at 10% alcohol and yet is quite drinkable. Certainly not a traditional red, but one that has a mind of its own.

M: Slightly oily and smooth with an almost creamy texture..

O: This is just one of those beers that needs to be tried. Four Hands has created a unique beer that manages to blend several components that you might not traditionally think would go together. Yet, they pull it off masterfully. For a red ale, this is one of the better ones I've ever had - complex and yet utterly drinkable. Bravo!
