A nice extra provided by ncvbc in a trade, thanks buddy.

Poured into my brand new Aventinus glass I picked up today at South Bay Drugs and Liquor, very nice looking piece of glassware.

The color of the beer is a muddy, tamarind, brown. A half inch of foam develops quickly but settles to a thin veil.

Aroma of tart and sweet cherries with hints of vanilla, oak and brown sugar. I dig the aroma. Some grapes come through as well as yeasty notes and a little funk.

Taste similar to the aroma. Sweet and semi-sour cherries with some toasted malt, caramel, and oak. Finishes with some grapes. Mostly sweet upfront with just the smallest tanginess in the finish. Good stuff though.

A really clean and crisp mouth-feel, and just a slight tangy after-taste.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
