Poured from a 22oz bottle, colder than the recommended 52-56F.

Deep ruby-brown ale, thin head of dense bubbles with good endurance. Nice lacing effects.

Smells of malt, black currant, grape/wine notes.

Grape, malt, some alcoholic heat comes through in the palate. After the ale has had a chance to warm up a bit, a bit of cocoa and coffee comes out.

Lingering taste of coffee, malt in the aftertaste, with much of the fruit gone.

Very complex beer, something to develop your palate on. Worth a look, and then more.

Favorite beer. Tastes great and as close to a fine wine as you could get in a beer comparison.
