A - dark in color with a light brown head which fades quickly
S - wonderful bourbon and chocolate aromas. as it warmed some, faint cherry smell came through some, but not as much as I'd hoped for
T - Starts out with big chocolate notes with bourbon mixing in as well. Not as much cherry as I would have liked initially. I let this warm for a bit, and yes! There it is! The cherry starts it off, and layers in so well with the chocolate and bourbon. A tad bit of heat here, and the bourbon does kick in towards the end. But this is simply delicious, and a wonderful dessert stout.
M - perfect. but what did you expect from these 2 brewers? It's not overly thick, which I rather like in this style of stout. It has a smooth velvet-like mouthfeel.
O - Phenomenal. Another homerun from CCB & Mikkeller, and truly a great dessert beer. Definitely let this warm up, as you get much more cherry flavor. Once it warmed, this beer really impresses with the layers of flavor on both the nose and mouth. I think the brewers hit the nail on the head for what they were going for on this one.
