I had this beer on-tap at WABL Belgianfest 2013 in a snifter taster glass.

This beer is their La Petite Mort aged on Chelan cherries in red wine barrels.

Appearance: rich, deep ruby amber red. Dark and deep and alluring!

Smell: I am going to be using the word "rich" a lot, I'm guessing. Wonderful aroma of rich, sweet, smooth dark cherries. Strawberry, plum and caramel aromas also come through. Delicious!

Taste: very sweet, with an up-front caramel character and a mild berry fruitiness. Cherries are present as well, but not quite as in the aroma. Oak and vanilla are also present, and the overall effect is almost of a strong ale or barleywine but without the hops. A little bit astringent, but overall quite good.

Mouthfeel: a medium-light body with a decent carbonation. A nice, entertaining, refreshing fizziness, though not really creamy.

Overall: an interesting and satisfying beer. I like cherries in beer a lot, so this was geared to appeal to me. I hope they make it available again!
