It's only fitting that this beer honors thinkers of complex thoughts, as quite a lot of thought went into this, and it's very complex!
It poured a deep red-brown, with a khaki head. Aromas of sweet malt, caramel and cherry. The tastes were many, and varied! Malt, leather, cherry, grapefruit, coriander, peppery Grains of Paradise, burgundy. The mouthfeel was smooth, creamy and light. It finishes with Grains of Paradise, leather, alcohol, and over-ripe cherries. A truly great beer, and worth the wait (and hype!) Those who don't like fruit in their beer should not avoid this, as the cherry is more of an accent, not an overpowering presence. If it tastes like this now, I can only imagine how it'll age. Wonder if they're going to do a Cave-aged version?
