La Folie on steroids. Incredible balance and complexity with great oak and vanilla notes.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown body. Nice white head.

Smell - Malty aroma. Musty red wine aroma. A little bit of cherry. Oak.

Taste - Lots of dark fruit. Oak is strong. Cherry. Red wine sourness. Musty finish. A little bit of that whiskey flavor back there.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Not all that sour. Medium body, but carbonation makes it seem lighter.

Overall - I wasn't enthused at first, but it improved as I drank it.
