A: Deep brown with reddish edges, I swear the head has a reddish tint from the cherries. Nice looking beer.

S: Sour cherries are surprisingly pungent on the nose, reminds me a little of a bourbony flemish brown ale. Brownie-like cocoa base, a bit of vanilla.

T: Cherries are up front again with a marshmallow-y chocolate base that is quite delicate for such a big flavorful beer. Extremely easy to drink with a cherry-truffle vibe.

M: Creamy and soft on the palate, I am impressed with how mellow this is so fresh out of the barrel.

A great beer from Wild Rose, I greatly preferred this over the regular cherry porter.

No. 587 of 600 limited bottles from Wildrose Brewery.

Appearance - Pours a dark chocolate/cola brown with a finger of bubbly cream-coloured head.

Smell - Bourbon, oak, tart cherries, vanilla, cocoa/chocolate, red wine.

Taste - Sweet and sour cherries straight out of the gate, followed with vanilla, cocoa, red wine and light oak. Impressive flavour palate.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Pleasant stickiness.

Overall - For a very limited run of bottles from Wildrose, they deliver on all fronts. Bourbon/oak flavour is at just the right level and the complex blend of flavours is cohesive. Pick up at least two bottles before they run out - one to age, and one to enjoy now.
