Red in color but transparent. The first thing that hit me with this was a smoky flavor which faded into a standard flavor of a red.

Smoky phenols dominate aroma, with accents of sweet caramel malt and herbal hops. Vanilla and oak surface late, complementing the caramel malt.

Flavor is also phenolic, but more plasticy. There's a pretty sweet, almost worty backbone, hints of fruity specialty malt character, and a dry, oaky, lightly bitter finish. Notes of vanilla surface as it warms.

The smoke is a tad overdone on this one. Overwhelms the barrel character. Yeah, and that worty character throughout, combined with the phenols, is reminiscent of diacetyl somehow. Not my combination of flavors.
