Misc.: N/A

Poured a copper amber hazy color with 1-2 fingers of khaki tan head. Thought it would be more red. Nice amount of lacing on the sides. Average-to-below average retention on the top.

Smelled mostly sour fruit (cherries, grape) and red wine, but not overpowering. Also sweet vanilla and light oak. Reminded me a bit of a Cherry Coke.

Great initial taste. Got sour, more tart cherries. A bit like a red sweet tart. Oak comes through a bit more than the smell. Very light vanilla. Nice build up to a surprising warm finish.

Medium body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively (above average) carbonation. Long, smooth, warming finish.

Still new to these type of beers, but it appeared to be one of the better ones. Would definitely have it again.
