Nose: dark dried fruit – figs and prunes, earthiness, slight funk, lemon.
Deep mahogany body with a slight chill haze.
Palate: tart, dark dried fruit some faint grape notes, cherry, currants, with some malt in the background.
Medium body and medium high fine, soft carbonation.
Tart fruit flavors linger long through the finish into the aftertaste.

Pours a purple/brown with little to no head. Smells very sour. Fig, cherry, wet bread. Can't really smell the wine. The taste is very tarte with notes of tobacco, tannins, wine, and an old wooden flavor to finish it off. One of my favorite sours.
