Imbibed at Yard House San Jose, 10/12/12. This arrived with lipstick on the glass and I had to return it. Check your glassware before you enjoy your beer!
Dark cherry wood, opaque in appearance with a good amount of tan head. Foam looks powdery and packed, leaving lacing on the glass. Very sticky. I get notes of cherry, roasty chocolate and leather. Sweet presence of candied sugar is prevalent but not overbearing. Candied cherries and other, somewhat sweet, pit fruit starts out the taste. Some dark chocolate, maybe bakers chocolate, with some oak and a hint of alcohol burn. The feel is balanced, as is the finish.
This was quite the treat. Very balanced and complex. Hopefully it's just as good from a bottle.
Serving type: on-tap
