Poured from a 750 ml bottle with a wire and cork seal into a goblet. Bottle has BB date of 31 Dec. 2025 -- so more than 10 years before the BB date!

A: Medium ruby with no head and no lacing.

S: Cherry cobbler with a touch of cherry liquer.

T: Cherries!. Lightly sweet with bit more sour.

M: Medium+ body is a bit syrupy.

O: following the brewer’s recommendation, I tried the last oz hot... increased bitterness and not recommended. The other odd recommendation, on the rocks, seems more appealing.

Overall: features a pronounced sweet and sour cherry, leanng towards the tart side.

This beer smelled great and has a beautiful dark color when pouring. Not much carbonation, which I'm fine with. Loved the taste. I could taste the spices but, also the cherry. Very good flavor, nice combination.

Fig brown color. Zero head to speak of. Sweet sweet cherry flavor. Hint of cough syrup. At first I thought my bottle had a bad cork site to the lack of carbonation, but I read a few reviews and it seems this was intentional. Heavy, sticky body. Descent brew overall.

From bottle dated 2009. A true surprise..a pleasant one at that. Label says good through 2025. Flat...flat...flat are the only words for the looks, but, if you can get past that, your golden.

This is a great example of capturing the essense of a very distinguished taste.

Having just been given a few jars of brandied cherries, which I really enjoyed, this is an extra special treat. They had some lovely mulled wine type spices to add to the party, but this "dark ale" "brown ale" brew has really brought the cherry-ness to the fore.

Looks like cranberry juice in the glass, but the flavor is anything but ordinary. I suggest recruiting help before tackling this. A little goes a long way.

Wonderous w/cheese.

Tried this hot and cold, different flavors and aromas. The beer initially pours a red color with a short lived white head. The aroma is extremely fruity full of dark cherry and a bit of spice. Heated, it smells like mulled cherry wine. The flavors are full on overripe cherry, faint tartness, and light dryness. The heated version exhibited more spice, balanced fruitiness and notes of wine. Body is invariable from medium fresh pour to lighter once heated. Overall, a fine drinking experience. Better heated honestly try it

Slow start as its fairly ordinary looking, no head, no lace, no distinguishing feature beyond being a very handsome ruby colour.

After that it's all about the cherries. Great cherry nose, great cherry taste. Spicy, fruity, malty - lots of good things happening. Comes across a bit like a liqueur without being quite as boozy or sweet. Sweetness nicely offset by a hint of sourness. Interesting and enjoyable to drink. Big alcohol can sneak up on you.
