Poured from bottle into wine glass at the bayou in salt lake city. Deep ruby color with pink lacing..very effervescent. Big wine aroma with a lot if deep cherry aromas as well. Taste is very red wine like...with a big dose of cherry. Its thick abd heavy but still drinkable...just a tad bit sweet. At the same time its tart and dry. Really nice brew overall..just dont expect a cantillon. ..its good in its own right.

The pour was slightly effervescent with a rich ruby color and a raspberry tinged pink foam. The beer was insanely opaque, no light shined through it. Seriously one of the prettiest beers I have ever seen! I really love the contrast between the color of the body of the beer and the foam on top.
Wow. Insanely intense and complex. I can actually smell tanins, funk ( perhaps this is the so called horseblanket Michael Jackson described because its a bit gnarly but that's ok because I like it!), perfumed cherries and a hint of oak.
The tanins in this beer hit my tougue and were quite drying. And a huge amount of astringency hits as well, It almost reminded me of a merlot with a hint of cherry juice. There definitely was a hint of soil as well. The mouthfeel actually hits you before the flavors do. Perahaps this could use a bit of age to round out the pits even more?
Overall an excellent beer. Insanely rich. I highly recommend drinking it in smaller portions to fully savor it as this is definitely a sipping beer. I am also impressed that at almost 9 percent alcohol this beer showed no trace of hotness.
