look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: A maroon to slightly amber beer. A bit of carbonation. Some cream-colored head that fades very fast with little or no lacing.
Smell: Reminders of brandy to the nose. The cherries are there but are not overwhelming. A bit of alcohol.
Taste: Let it warm up. About 55F. Now the flavor is coming out! Lots of fruit, alcohol, nice rounded malt. Just a bit of tartness at the end, but not sour.
Mouthfeel: Has a bit of a lager feel. Tastes like an ale, but has a clean finish for a mouthfeel.
Drinkability: This is a delicious ale. The cherries add a festive quality and the sweetness blends with the alcohol nicely.
This is my Christmas beer for the year. I will be enjoying this beer in my snifter by the fire while watching the snow fly.
Serving type: bottle
