4.04/5 rDev +8.6%
Dark brown, almost black. Creamy head with good retention and a few lace spots.
Mildly roasted flavor with sweet dark fruits. Assertive Brett-like tartness.
Just a hint of roasted malt suggesting dark chocolate and toasted oats. Prune and black currant sweetness. Mildly tart yeast flavor. Well balanced.
Super smooth throughout. Dense body. Plenty of tiny bubbles bring the complexities to the taste buds. Malty, yeasty texture.
Good stuff. Complex and tasty.

750ml corked and caged bottle poured into a tulip. The brew appears dark brown in color with cola clarity around edges. A tan cap fades leaving spotty lace on the glass.
The aroma includes notes of cocoa and fruit. Some mildly vinous aspects with vanilla and caramel from the barrel aging as it breathes.
The taste has some vinous to raisony/plum notes before chocolate and more raisin. A little yeasty with caramel and oak/vanilla from the barrel creates a smoothness and suggestion of sweetness.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Interesting with some good character but nothing id get exited about drinking again.
