3.44/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On draft at Capone's - 9oz pour for $8. Would've skipped it had I known.

Poured with a fluffy, cream colored head over a cloudy amber body. Lots of lacing

Aromas were light (too cold) - dark fruits, light bit of cranberry, good sweetness.

Flavors are decent. Cranberry, pear, touch of brown sugar, light bitterness, red grape skins. Picked up plenty of the wine barrel aging, but nothing from the brandy or bourbon barrels. Could have used "more sweet"

Mouthfeel was quite dry. Touch of tart pull.

A nice version of the style, but nothing that I'd seek out.

Poured on-tap and served in a tulip, the beer is a very dark, rich, ruby-brown coloring with a thin, light, small bubbled, light brown head that leaves a decent lacing along the glassware. Aromas are sour initially, with red wine, cherry, and currant characteristics along the subtle caramel malt backbone. Flavors are tangy sour initially, with an overt wine flavor and feel. Tannins abound, and are blended with fruit tang and tartness, including currants, grapes, and black cherries. The aftertaste is actually light, with only the tang and a slight pucker feel carrying over once the palate is cleared. Some earthy and floral tones in the aftertaste, too, but subtle. The finish is clean, and slightly astringent, making the mouth water a bit at the end. Tasty!
