4.6/5  rDev +22.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: No head, but a very clear reddish brown color. Not a lot of carbonation to be seen.

S: Slight alcohol scent, but it is heavily masked by a sour raspberry coated in caramel nose. Wild grain scent as well.

T: Pretty much mimics the nose only the wild grain seems to come to life and give it a bready taste.

M: Smooottthhh!

D: can't get enough.

I know I may be in the minority in this one, but this beer tastes like straight teriyaki sauce. It may just be the bottle I drank (I hope so) but the taste was just horrible. The coloring and mouthfeel is alright, but otherwise, avoid this at all costs.

Sampling right now on 6/12/14. Comes in a beautiful painted-on label in a '1 pt. 9.4 oz.' bottle that has a metal cap and a cork and costs $8.49 + tax. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a Sam Adam's pint glass.

Pours a pretty deep mahogany in color with a good 2+-finger off-white head that settles down a to a thin layer on top and sides of the glass. Spotty lacing is seen when sipped. Lots of sediment left in the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is of dark fruit, toasted malts from a oak barrel. The taste is really complex with a tart cherry at first which is quickly overtaken by the oak that finishes with a slightly vinegar finish. More probably going on for sure but is hard to pin-point. Overall a different brew but tasty.
