Poured a reddish dark brown color with one finger of khaki white head when I got it. Below average foggy lacing on the sides. Minimal-to-bad retention on the top.

Smelled dark cherry, black cherry, sour cherry. So cherry. Also raspberry, red wine (Cabernet?), purple grape and plum.

Tasted similar to the nose, but better. Got sour cherry, black cherry, Cabernet red wine, sour grape, plum and raspberry. Very smooth.

Medium body. Oily texture. Soft carbonation. Long, smooth finish.

This beer just got better each drink. Fantastic.
