Poured a dark amber - almost ruby red with minimal head and very little lacing. Beer was extremely aromatic and immediately noticeable once the cork was removed. Smells of a yeasty cabernet, wild cherries, roasty malts and oak. Those aroma characteristics were consistent with the flavor of the brew, some mild tartiness and yeasy flavors - a medium to heavy body, creamy texture and light carbonation ... very interesting. Not one I would continue to pursue due to personal tastes - but a very interesting beer to sample!!
