Finally cracked my Bottleworks 15 today. Looking forward to it! Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: rich & cloudy brown hue with a finger of creamy light-brown foam atop. Quite attractive!

Smell: big, rich malt aroma with a good dark fruitiness of raisin and date plus a dash of chocolate. Wonderful!

Taste: malty with those same dark, dusty fruit flavors, plus a sourness up front which subsides as the sweetness re-asserts itself. i love it!

Mouthfeel: medium body with a moderate carbonation and a decent creaminess. Not too bad.

Overall: this is a damn fine beer. The flavors are a bit strong to drink it for a whole session, but overall very good.

Smelled delicious, but was definitely starting to become infected as it had a very present tartness.

Fizzy tan head.

Slightly tart, has a twang to it. Tequila shows nicely. Very interesting. Plums, raisins, brown sugar. The quad base definitely shows. Tart cherry flavors.
