Tart and refreshing, this ale was aged in red wine and Scotch barrels. With time in the glass, it reveals an undercurrent of red berries, plum, raisin and just a wisp of peat smoke. Finishing with flavors of underripe blueberry and raspberry alongside hints of herbs, smoke and iodine, this dark chestnut-colored ale is damn delightful. John Holl

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
