Bottled in April, 2011 but picked up in October, same year. Go figure. It’s a marzen, so maybe there’s poetic justice at work here. Thanks to XicanoBeerRun for this bottle.
Gave it a vigourous pour and received a good layer of foam that slowly died down atop a ruby-amber colored beer. Muted malty aroma on the nose, and the hints of cherry and dark fruits that the description on the label promises. Mellow taste. It’s sweet around the edges but not overpoweringly so. More like dark cherry, perhaps some cherrywood, or whiskey-soaked cherry, if I was pressed to pin it down. The rye gives it an edge, but I’d be hard pressed to describe just what, exactly. Like a sweeter, less hoppy ryePA, I suppose. Different from what I’d expect from a marzen but that’s not a bad thing. Another winner from the Great Divide.
