A: like fine dark chocolate when you see it you know you're in for a treat, Black and impermiable to light, no head or lacing.

S: AJ hit it on the head Cordial Cherries are on the nose with a strong coffee presence, reminded me of fresh ground michigan cherry infused coffee.

T: Strong Coffee and maple presence with the tartness of a great cherry lambic giving the feel of fresh tart cherries

M: Smooth and slightly oily really really easy to drink

O: Truely one for the books this was worth every penny I wish it could have been taken home in growler form and enjoyed for several more days. If anyone ever figures out a clone for this one hook me up!

Tried on tap at Goose Island Clybourn.

Wanted a dessert beer, so I chose this one. Holy cow! Amazing.
Had a strong cherry smell, and the taste didn't disappoint. Reminded me
of cordial cherries. You know, the ones you get on
valentine's day. Had a slight boozy finish. Perfect. I wish I
could take some home. My first 5/5. Oh my god, what a beer!
Home run Goose Island!

On tap at Goose Island Clybourn. Absolutely fantastic beer! The coffee/maple scent makes this easily the best smelling beer I have ever found. The flavor is complex with coffee, vanilla, bourbon, and maple. A bit too sweet perhaps, and a bit hot. I wish they would bottle this so I could try it again in a year!
