A: 2.5 to a 3.5 finger head. It pours bubbly, you can hear the bubbles fizzing. The color is dark red with a creamy white head.

S: fruit, dark fruit medley. You can smell the alcohol due to the high abv. Also I picked up an apple aroma?

T: salty caramel and dark sugared fruits. This dark triple was showing its true colors when it warms up. The room temperature brings out a lot more dimensions in my opinion. So let this one warm up a bit.

M: Carbonated balance with a real light syrup mouth feel.

O: After letting this brew warm it was quite enjoyable to taste the different levels of flavor. I will be buying this again.
