A: Pours a reddish caramel with a fair bit of tan foamy head initially which rapidly dissipates.
S: Oak dominates, but there are also notes of red currant, caramel, and a touch of alcohol heat.
T: Strong burst of sweetness quicly overtaken by a lactic tartness. This fades into an astringency with notes of oak and vanilla.
M: Thin, but also a bit syrupy. Very sharp on the palate.
O: It has a depth of flavor that is much more interesting than many in this style. These different flavors play off of each other well enough that it doesn't overpower you with any one of them.

Like Supplication on steroids, you get flavors of cherries, oak, chocolate, cognac and sour citrus with a deep, caramelly malt backdrop. Appearance is a deep, dark amber with almost no light penetration or head. Thick, chewy mouthfeel and a deep, vinous smell. Worth over penny. A perfect beer.
Serving type: on-tap
