Not much of a head on this reddish-brown brew, and what little it has dies down to patches and an off-white ring of lace soon after the pour. Still not a bad looking beer. Aroma of dried apricots and rum-soaked raisins with a good caramel sweetness. They say candy sugar is at the heart of this brew, but it seems to me that it only appears in hints and suggestions while alcoholic cherry syrup and caramel take over. A little too much alcohol presence, even though it is a 10% brew, it could be hidden better. However, the alcohol does calm down a bit in the flavor as it warms. Very smooth mouthfeel, nice. Slight grainy malt presence after warming more, which is pleasant. The candy sugar does show up just a bit more after warming as well, but it's still an undertone. Not a bad brew, I don't think I'd rush out to have it again though.
