A: Poured from (2010) bottle into dogfish head snifter. pours gorgeous dark cherry red/mahogany. Two-finger caramel-color head. Very thick, full-bodied foam that slowly dissipates, leaving great lacing.
S: Bit of a sweetness, caramel on the back end. Actually not as strong as I was expecting. Mild malt and hops.
T: Fantastic. Alcohol only comes through just enough to add to the flavor. It has a delicious, well rounded sweetness (cherry and plum), that finishes with a bit of a bite from the hops and leaves a nice roasted maltiness that lingers on the palate for quite a while.
M: Very smooth, medium-heavy body. Very mild carbonation.
D: Delicious, but probably wouldn't recommend more than two unless you plan on a long evening.
Serving type: bottle
