750 ml corked bottle. Pours dark, coffee brown with a lively, rocky tan head. Smell was a bit odd, maybe just this bottle b/c I got a whiff of vinegar at first. Dissipated quickly though, and the aroma was then black cherries and chocolate. Taste is chocolate, caramel, plums at first, then that sour black cherry at the back of the tongue. Finishes crisply with a toffee-like aftertaste. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated, silky and downright wonderful. The drinkability is up in the dangerous range, as the 10% abv is hidden well. The silky mouthfeel and the crisp finish combine for a beer you could definitely drink a LOT of. This is just one fantastic beer. Hands down. Wow.
