Notes from 03/2011

Poured into a bell's tulip. Dark copper in color with some lace and brown head.

Ripe grape notes and plenty of melanoidins in the nose.

Medium to full bodied with plenty of carbonation and smooth character overall. Very easy to drink. Loads of grape and dark bread from a rich malty grain bill. Some caramel and brown sugar sweetness that finishes very dry.

This was quite the treat but easily snuck up on me. It drinks like 8% but it was so delicious that I had to have more.
