4.33/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Single 25cl bottle poured into a tulip. No date on bottle.

Appearance: The head died down quickly to nothing - no lacing as I drank it down either. Bubbles do move up slowly through the liquid, which is a nice reddish orange - very clear.

Smell is unusual - when cold you can smell the alcohol, but as it warms up it takes on a definite wine-like smell. A pleasant grape-like mustiness and some other fruit like smells with a hint of alcohol at the end. It's very appetizing.

Taste: Strong cherry flavor right up front - just right, not too sweet and not too tart. Some caramel flavors towards the end and other sugars as well, but again, not too much that it would be cloying. If there are hops present, I can't find them, but maybe their bitterness is balancing out the other sweet flavors. Quite tasty.

Mouthfeel: Very carbonated, not at all watery...maybe even a bit slick and oily but not in a bad way when combined with the spiciness on the tongue.

Drinkability: Definitely a sipper, and definitely a winter warmer at 12% ABV. A pleasant experience with the meal and afterwords for savoring.

T: Vinous, figs and raisins, grassy and bitter, notes of cocoa and cola, syrupy
M: sharp, effervescent slightly cloying and sour and astringent for only a moment
