The finished beer is deep red with raisin, chocolate and sour cherries in the aroma. Tart and spicy, Currant Affair has a complex flavor profile with notes of chocolate, stone fruit and brown sugar. The finish of this beer is dry with a surprisingly full mouthfeel and a lingering tartness. 7.2% ABV.
