Had the Hennepin before and loved it and I found this one and the Hennepin at the local 6-pack shop. Obtained in bomber size bottle (1 pint 9.4 fl. oz.).
G: English style pint glass and cognac snifter (tried both types)
A: dark cherry red/ruddy brown. Nice head when poured as directed on the big bottle.
S: hint-o-cherry, informing me of what's to come. After a few sips, it gets a bit overwhelming. Certainly the cherry is masking some strong essences otherwise, but I can't pick them out right now.
T: the addition of cherries breaks up the boozieness on the initial hit. Definitely a strong beer. Good tasting.
M: smooth and very coating, probably due to the booziness. Disappears slowly. Very satisfying to me.
D: It's a bit rough after a few sips. I needed a snack to break it up, so I had some sharp cheddar slices.
I liked it overall. It has a beautiful golden-brown wispy lacing and a rich flavor and hue that reminds me of late autumn for some reason.
Serving type: bottle
