750 ml corked and caged bottle purchased over the phone from the brewery about a year ago, had this along with the Apricot, Cuvee, and Blackberry with four friends a few nights ago, reviewed from notes, poured into my Dogfish Head snifter, color is a deep amber with some pink edges, 1/2 inch bubbly white head, decent retention, some light lacing, aroma consists of cherries, funkiness, dark malts, lacto, bit of whiskey-like booze, oak, and tobacco, flavor begins with various cherry flavors, both black and fresh cherries you would find on the top of a sundae, more sweet than anything in the middle with more fruit flavors, finish has lots of oak and bit of vinegar to go with the cherry flavors, oaky, tart,and sweet mouthfeel, full bodied, lightly carbonated compared to their other bottles, could drink a lot of this, alcohol is hidden well, fairly easy drinking for its style, this beer cellars pretty well and I wish I had more to try it out for longer periods of time, worth checking out
