Bottle (undated)
Pours an auburn color, seemingly clear but translucent dye to color. The head pours to a decent level of medium bubbles, but fades fairly quickly; a decent swirl is needed to bring it back for a couple seconds. The nose is dark fruit, tart - currant, raisin, but there is a significant wine feel to the scents, as well. Other sniffs I get a light tartness of blackberry and hints of alcohol.

The taste starts with the dark fruit from the nose, with some of the perceived tartness missing. Honey or maybe even diluted molasses sweetness comes first, then a fig taste that seems to want to tend to raisin, but is subdued by a drying woody flavor. From this comes an alcohol burn, which isn't storm and doesn't last too long. The ending is more if the dry wood notes.

This is an iffy style for me, but I enjoyed the flavors, and enjoyed the subtle complexities in the beer. The beer had an unexpected thinness (watery feel) too it, more noticeable as it warmed, but that was ok. On the other hand, the complexities mellowed as well, and since the style and ABC in general would make it a sipping beer for me, this prevented it from a higher rating.
