      Appearance (2½)
      The cork LEAPED out of the bottle and hit the ceiling, but the beer didn't foam over. It's a deep red, with lots of chunks, and a moderate head.
      Aroma (2½)
      Yeasty, alcoholic. Some dark caramel.
      Mouthfeel (8)
      Big body, moderately fizzy. Big chewy caramel malt base, very nicely warming. Some dark fruitiness. Yeasty.
