My awesome weyerbacher brew rep natalie gave me a bottle of this and I'm excited to try since it would be a tough find here in NJ.
Deep amber color with dark orange highlights. some haziness and about 2 fingers of off white head which dissipates kind of quickly. Big plum aroma on the nose along with cherry cola, white raisins, and melon oddly enough. Almost like a left over fruit bowl.
The taste is a lot more subtle than the nose. Rum raisin flavors with touches of licorice and black cherries. Big bold body that stays consistent throughout. Some detectable spice that plays well with the dark belgian candy flavors. Fruity yet spicy. Everything balances incredibly well into one dangerously delicious crescendo of flavor. Deep, dark, complex, yet subtle.
The abv is incredibly well hidden on this big brew.
This beer could do incredibly well in 6 packs or 4 packs for that matter. It's like a better mad elf without that 2 beer black out factor (however 4 would probably do you in) .
I hope they bring this one back.

I snagged this beer from Vintage Estate for 8.99. I always love trying new Weyerbacher and was very intrigued they brewed and bottled this from the 2011 recipe. Plus I hella love cherries!
A - Poured this into my Unibroue Tulip for ultra fragrance. Like most corked and caged beers from these guys the carbonation is fierce but fizzes out rather quickly probably because of the massive ABV. The head goes from a 1/2 inch to just a mild lace ring in seconds. The beer itself Is a very distinct brown like a violet brown with some red hues. A very deep dark ale but clear in color.
S - Its hard to really pick up notes other than cherry and dry fruity yeasts since I just got over a cold but I can tell they come off slightly woody and maybe herbal? It's hard to tell without sipping so I dive right in.
T - Ow yes the cherry does come through not as sweet more tart that clings to the back of the dry yeasts with a sort of woody medicinal bite but it never really gets too bitter. The flavor kind of fades off with a sort of dry cardboard taste not very offensive but worth noting. Not sure if I love it I know I don't hate it.
M - Very smooth with a medium body at best. It drinks very smooth like their oak aged barleywine "Insanity" but with more of a dry yeast bite.
Overall I could see why people would think this is just above average in a way its kind of one dimensional the flavor kind of fades with the massive ABV punch but it never really gets too "hot" one would expect for an 11% beer.
A very drinkable Belgium dark ale with some dry tart cherry flavor.

One of the more interestingly color brews I've come across (particularly since I assumed it would be a dark brown ale with cherries added, no extra/different coloration or minimal, it's actually a near-mauve, a bit more violet as it settles with a certain thickness just in the color giving it a translucency that just barely is more clear than complete opacity. It's a new label, so maybe the recipe's changed, but this is (at least any longer) neither any shade of orange or brown. The head is red-tinged fluff about a finger tall that retains itself pretty well and laces the glass moderately.
The smell is mostly sweet cherries, fresh and juicy and seeming like a blend of some kind as even a hint of maraschino comes out. Yeast is on the earthier side and only a hint of candi sugars is noticeable. A bit of dryness, in fact, adds a bit of balance and keeps it at even levels as far as sweetness is concerned. Malts have a bit of breadiness, but not heavy and not particularly dark either.
The flavor takes the dryness further and has a slightly acidic twang too. Letting it warm up allows the cherry and sweetness to come through, and the balance and softness is good without giving up flavor. The yeast is surprisingly dryer than I expect and more earthy than anything, with a bit of must and grains. Clove makes for a soft spiciness on the tongue and a hint of herb lies underneath.
The body is medium-full with a strong crispness and a smoothness on the tongue that leads to a lightly tart cherry finish in which a little spicy bite nips as well.

Appearance is a light chestnut brown with very little head. The nose was rather mild. The flavor profile has dark fruit notes that are both tart and sweet. The body is somewhat thin for the style. This is a rather basic offering - not bad, but nothing special either.
