Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Bruery reserve snifter. Thanks Ryan for sharing this one!

Pours a deep brown translucent body with a decent sized brown head that reduces to a layer of foam.

Aromas of coffee , freshly ground coffee grounds, cherry and chocolate, heavy vanilla bourbon.

Taste is chocolate covered cherries, vanilla, caramel, bourbon, milk chocolate, lightly tart cherries, finishing roasty and lightly bitter. Medium heavy mouthfeel, can't tell this is 13.5%. Low carbonation.

I get every flavor as advertised here. Awesome beer.

Pours an inky black with a thick mocha head that slowly settles over a minute or so

Big time cocoa nose, with hints of cherry

Vanilla, cherry, dark chocolate. More coffee. Layered and very complex.

Really well balanced. Not overly sweet, but nice big body.

Fantastic beer. One of my favorites from the Bruery
