Bottle to snifter.
Aroma seems to lack any cherry. Smells boozy, hint of honey like sweetness.
Pours dark honey brown with reddish hues. No appreciable head, but plenty of bubbles. Attractive looking.
Initial taste get the alcohol burn, not getting the cherry. Dry finish, sweetness and honey notes. Still not finding the cherry taste at all despite some medicinal hints. Surprisingly bitter. The honey and sweetness seemed to build, then a bit of sourness after a few minutes. Coats a bit with lingering sweetness.
Overall, a little disappointed but this is quite warming and it is pretty cold here today. Will keep sippin on it, but nothing I would rush out to buy again.
