On tap at the brewpub. 2013 GABF gold medal winner.
A very dark brown with reddish brown highlights, this looks great. The thin beige head falls off quickly. The nose is decadent. Chocolate covered cherries, cocktail cherries, Cherry cordial, candied cherries, mild cherry tartness, this is great. Some caramel, buckwheat honey, vanilla, in some ways this reminds me of Ben and Jerry's cherry Garcia. The palate opens with an intense cherry flavor, complex and dark, with chocolate, Vanilla, dark caramel, buckwheat honey, a little coffee. Sweetness and vanilla are especially prominent on the mid palate. The finish is sweet with cherries, honey and roast, the alcohol is well hidden here. Medium in body, mildly carbonated, this beer is quite nice. The chocolate and cherries hide the base Baltic porter, but this is delicious.
