A: Dark brown with some red hints.

S: Sweet malts, fruity esters with some cherry.

T: Sweet, residual sugar, some cherry and a hint of chocolate.

M: Full bodied. Full mouthfeel. High carbonation cleans out some of the residual sugar giving it not a dry finish but not overly sweet.

O: Complex, layered. On the sweeter side - definitely a dessert drink.

Nice complex beer. My only negative is it was a bit too sweet for me.

Sight: Dark amber brown color with some hazyyness. nice head on the pour with large bubbles.

Aroma: fruity notes that remind me of prunes and dark cherries. cooked sugar is a predominant aroma.

Taste: bitter sweet and rich. full body feel with ample carbonation.

Overall: Great beer that is complex and full of flavor. Had fun with this one.
