  4. Good (above average and high quality in terms of taste)

  6. Out-of-body experience (absolutely supreme taste and presentation)

imageDark ale, not even close to transparent. Pours small head. The nose is cherries, raisins, flowers and oak. As far as tastewise, it tastes stingy and fresh, with a very sour cherry-twist that sets in quickly… One can barely sense the fruity comfort before shivers are sent through the body. There’s an underlying sweet, fruity carpet in the back that in turn shows it’s precense, band the taste lingers with good lenght. The aftertaste is redwine from the storage in barrels.
