4.68/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 375ml bottle into a stemmed Teku glass.
Bottle date 6/2013; Poured 3/2014

A: Pours a very dark brown with almost red hues, becoming transparent on the edges with 1 to 2 fingers of creamy tan head that settles to a persitant collar and leaves excellent lacing.

S: The nose is tart with nice fruit notes (cherries), oaky, toasted malt and maybe a touch of coffee.

T: The flavor is complex starting tart, lots of cherries, oak but smoothes out a bit and toasted malts a hints of toffee come through. There is a dry spiciness like black pepper come through on the finish (from the bittering hops?).

M: It has a medium body and nice carbonation making it light, refreshing and round.

O: Overall, a very complex yet drinkable beer whose flavors evolve with every sip. A truly remarkable and interesting beer.
