Poured from 12oz bottle into a snifter glass. Pours a nice amber with a 4cm pale yellow head. Sits brown in the glass but shines a beautiful ruby in the light. Head dies down to a thin film.

Smell brings in aroma of malts, fruits, and slight spice.

Taste almost reminds one of drinking a red wine of sorts. Hints of cherry and slightly burnt toast on the starting line, then opens up to nice malts, some hops, and the same spice as smelled. Alcohol is somewhat noticeable in this one.

Has a nice mouthfeel, full bodied and dry. Carries on the comparison to a red wine.

This beer definitely lets you know its there. A lot of flavors mixed in. This is my first beer of this type, but still it made a good impression. One thing for sure is that this beer looks really cool in the glass with the gorgeous ruby tone.
