4.2/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

I was able to try this one at the brew pub a couple of summers ago (oh yeah, it was freaking awesome) and was fortunate to receive a bottle of it in a trade. Bottled in 2010, review is from notes taken on 6/9/2012.

Appearance: Pour is a dark and murky brown color and pours essentially with no head whatsoever; with the darker body, it's kind of opaque, but not like a deep dark stout or anything; tiny strands of carbonation bubble up near the sides of the glass, which leads me to believe that the body won't be entirely dead which may be presumed based upon the zero-head factor on the pour; nothing is left behind on the sides of the glass - pretty much clean of any residue or lacing.

Smell: Oh yeah -- the two years in the bottle have allowed the malts to come out much more than I remember, and there is a strong caramel/butterscotch scent to it; pretty impressive sour and dark cherry scents as well -- reminiscent of a chocolate covered cherry complete with the sweet vanilla-esque syrup included; just smells like dessert.

Taste: Just about what I expected after the nose -- tons of malt, and it's very sweet (caramel, hints of some chocolate, vanilla); the cherries come in next, and there is a ton of them -- very tart and a bit funky; a little bit of alcohol... OK, actually there's a quite a bit of warm booziness but it just works so well as it blends in with the other big and bold flavors that one should expect from this brewery. Super solid, but definitely a sipper and 12 oz. will be plenty.

Mouthfeel: Thicker than I remember, it comes across fairly syrupy, but the carbonation is essentially non-existent leaving the palate a little bored; the only liveliness retained comes from the big booziness and it leaves the mouth tingly, and the belly is very warm from the acidity and alcohol. Not as good as I would have hoped for in this category, but still, not too shabby.

Overall: What this beer lacks in body, it certainly makes up for it in the smell and taste. As mentioned above, it's definitely a sipper with an ABV of 12%, and the flavors are so bold anyway, you don't need anymore than the single bottle, and that is something that could be shared with a pal, but I'm kind of greedy like that so I'll be killing it myself.
