Murky brown color with a reddish hue, no head. Aroma is really intense with dark fruits, caramel, brandy, toffee and fudge. Taste follows with cherries, plums, figs, toffee and oak. Heavy, flat body. Really complex overall, lots of dark fruits and toffee. A bit of carbonation would do wonders though.

Really an incredible beer. Almost like Dark Lord with cherries. Not quite as thick, but an amazing nose and solid palate. Dark bourbon and molasses cherries. Luckily I got three. Don't care what everyone says about aging beers being a joke. Obviously not for everyone, but then again, most people drink wine far too young too!
