On tap at The Lion's Pride.
Comes to the table a slightly hazy deep amber/copper color with a nice sized fluffy off white head that displays nice retention and lots of lace. Smells of caramel, sugar, perfume, nuts, oak, and alcohol. It's an odd nose that's for sure. Light fruity and sugary flavor with a bit too much alcohol heat. Fruity, oaky, red wine vinous with a hint of oily nuts. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sugary vinous mouthfeel. Its a bit weird, but it really grew on me as I worked my way through the glass.
