12 oz bottle enjoyed with local beer buddy in The Big, thanks Peter.
Minimal carbonation, very little if any head, no lacing. Clear reddish brown body, no visible carbonation. Nose is mostly cherries, some sweet notes re honey subsumed by the fruit, a wee bit of floral hops. Taste mirrors the nose, very sweet, not sure this fits into BSDA style tastewise. I got a hit of effervescence my first taste then it was flat as a pancake, medium-light mouthfeel, not sticky. ABV very well hidden for this alcohol bomb, but IMHO this needs significant cellaring. Will be stashing a bottle or two for next Christmas. To be honest, quite underwhelming.
