2.8/5 rDev -32%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Poured into an E&J Cask & Cream glass on 12/8/12
Bottled: Feb 11 2011
Rustic appearance; tobacco and copper hues. One and a half finger head drops to about 1/4th of an inch. Foam clumps at the collar and trails up to lace on the glass. Good lace.
Smells woody and funky; moderate acidity. Vinous and floral tones drift atop sweet grains and mild prairie grass notes. I really like the barrel on this one; it's clean, not musty.
Wow, the taste is a lot funkier and mustier than the aroma. Moderate amounts of sourness tempered by a spot of sugar to cut the puckering aspects. The sugars are compounded with warmth, loaded with grapes and dark fruits.
Medium body with something of a creamy feel despite gritty underpinnings and moderate carbonation. As it warms it starts to get slick with sugars and some alcohol.
While there are some decent aspects, I don't much care for this one overall. Very disheveled.
