4.17/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark amber, near brown with a minimal fizzy head leaving no lacing.
Aroma is molasses and cherries. Montmorency cherries. Pie cherries. Touch of hops, bit of malt. then more cherries.

Taste echoes aroma... More cherries and nearly cloyingly sweet, but just enough hop and earthy malt to make it work.

Mouth is slick, full, viscous, full of carbonation. rich, dessert like. excellent and exactly what I want out of a pie cherry baltic.

I love cherries, so i kind of love this. Ratings are always subjective, right? If you dig sweet Pie cherries, this is it. Montemorency cherries are one of my favorite things, and this baltic utilizes them beautifully. I might be biased, but I think I could drink this day after day after day after... you get the idea. Definitely heavy on the sweet pie cherry, but definitely awesome.

On tap at Belmont Station 3.19.11, $3.50 for 25 cl pour into Delirium Tremens mini-tulip.

Dark brown almost black opaque body, no visible carbonation, quarter-finger head resulted in thin ring around edge of glass, quick dissipation. Nose is dark cherries, some spices, muted due to cold cold pour. Taste is dark cherries, pretty sweet, floral hops and a cloying cinnamon character that got increasing aggressive as the beer warmed. As TB who has the best palate I know said, taste like cherry pie filling. A real sipper, desert beer in small apertif glass would be just perfect, especially with the right desert. Medium mouthfeel, no effervescence. Wondering if the bottles I picked up at BBC will have the same cinnamon notes. Really tasty in small batches.

On-tap at Strong Ale

A: The pour is a murky dark brown with some definite red notes to it. A minimal tan head forms on top.

S: The nose starts off with a big time pie cherry aroma. There's a nice sweetness along with some chocolate and a very mild roasted malt character. The cherries are the standout here.

T: Like the nose, the cherries really make this beer. A good combination of sweetness and tartness from the fruit, along with some sweet caramel and chocolate. The roasted malt is again mild.

M: The body is medium and the carbonation is low to medium.

D: I was worried this one might be a bit medicinal or cough syrup-esque since so many cherry beers seem to end up that way. Luckily, that wasn't the case.
