This one has some age on it. Got lost in the cellar.

Pours a fairly clear deep burgundy, with a frothy khaki head that slowly dissipates, leaving sheets of lacing.

Sweet molasses, cocoa, and cola form the initial aroma. There's a touch of dates and raisins, which probably developed with time.

Flavor reveals tart cherry and prunes underlying a chocolate and deeply toasted malt base. Slightly sweet, but the nutty, dry finish counters well. Reminds me somewhat of chocolate covered cherries.

Body and carbonation are moderate, with noted alcohol warmth in the finish.

Would like to try this fresh, but it's great with some age on it. The spices have probably dwindled, which suits my palate well. The tart note is slightly overwhelming, but this is a good brew.
