Smell: lots of cherries dark, licorice, a hint of wood.

Tastes: Sweet but not as sweet as lambic, medium carbonation, tart finish, medium density not too watery not too sticky.

Looks: dark red with spots of brown, head becomes a thin layer

Personality: refreshing, you cannot tell the 8%. It’s a sneaky bastard. Get up and you will feel drunk.

Pour: Start pouring low, tilted glass. Finish pouring high to get a reasonable head, about 2 inches. Although the head becomes a thin layer on top and a little clings on the sides. It tastes better at the recommended serving temperature about 40F

Food pair: Drink as a dessert with vanilla ice cream or drink as aperitif. Drinking it will make you hungry.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Duvel glass. Purchased in Smithfield, RI.

A - pours a dark maroon, cloudy body with a light maroon 2 finger head that reduces to a ring of foam.

S - tons of sweet cherries, tart berries, grapes. Cherries really dominate.

T- upfront it's pretty sweet with cherry juice and tart berries on the tongue. The finish has a slightly drying, astringent rindy character.

M- medium body , medium- low carbonation. Juicy

I'm a sucker for a cherry beer and this is nothing more than a cherry bomb. One- dimensional but delicious. Would buy again.
