Trying my best with this review

Pours a dark copper. Forms a foamy head.

On first taste, the toasted flavor comes shining through, especially in the foam, then followed by the bold notes of coffee and caramel chocolate. Low carbonation, medium sweet and medium viscosity. Very very slight bitterness. The taste centers on the middle of the tongue. Aftertaste of caramel, very little bitterness.

Appearance: Light bronze. Yeast is visible making it hazy. Pretty nice fluffy tan head. Good lookin brew.
smell: Dark fruity yeast. A deep sniff yields a tart cherry and malt. Quite nice and complex.
taste: Even better than the nose. Complex, all the tastes in the nose, fruit, yeast, malt cherry, sweet, tart.
overall: Been a while since I enjoyed one of these. Forgot how great this is. Great brew.
