4.05/5 rDev +6.9%
Dark reddish-brown, almost matches color of bottle. Served slightly chilled---and then warmed as held glass in two hands. Very nice spicy taste, like nutmeg/ allspice. Almost syrupy at first, thinner as it warms. Very tobacco-like nose when at room temp. Just enough cherry to know it's there without being too sweet/fruity. I would probably love it when hot. At a public tasting and servers did not (as I didn't) know it is best served warm.

750ml bottle. Best before 12/31/2025. Served in a snifter.
Appearance: Reddish brown in color. Pours completely still with zero head or visible carbonation. If I didn't know better, I'd think it was a glass of iced tea.
Smell: Maraschino cherries, mint, menthol, dark fruit. Smells a bit like a cherry cough drop.
Taste: Medicinal cherry dominates the palate. Also getting some cinnamon and a slight breadiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a slick oily mouthfeel. Very slight twinge of carbonation but otherwise nearly flat.
Overall: Not a fan of this one. The lack of carbonation was a problem, but I can chalk that up to personal preference. The main issue I had was the medicinal artificial cherry notes that dominated both the smell and palate. It's not terrible, but I wouldn't get it again.

T - Sweet caramel and dark caramel malts, sour cherries, and other dark fruits, acidity, some Belgian yeast character.
M - Medium bodied with low carbonation. Smooth and a bit thick with a sweet and lightly sour finish.
D - Nice fruit beer. Could use a bit more carbonation, however the flavors are really nicely balanced.
