I got this as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. 12oz. brown bottle with a date of 08/14/14 on it. This beer must hold up well as this date is over a year and a half away yet.
The beer poured a rather nice looking semi clear reddish/copper color with ruby red highlights when held to the light. Unfortunately it only produced a half finger of off-white head that didn't last long and produced very little lacing.
Sour cherry and wine-like grapiness in the nose, as well as plenty of malt and a touch of alcohol.
Malty, with dark cherry and dark chocolate flavor. Cinnamon/clove spiciness and some warming alcohol in the background. Dry finish. The 3 varieties of hops don't make much of an impact at only 20 IBU's, but give just the slightest bitter bite for balance.
It's on the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
I like even more malt than this in a dubbel, but this is still a tasty brew.
