This was brewed for the brewpub's "Fruit in the Room" event held on 1/28/14. Cans were available to go at the brewpub.

The color is dark brown with a very dark red hue in the body. A medium-brown head develops to one finger's height, keeps itself up, and remains for the entire session half a finger of creamy, thick foam that leaves behind patchy lacing.
Cherries pour out of the nose, mainly sweet with a light tartness, completely fresh and juicy. It's supported by deep, breadier malts and a faint note of alcohol.
The cherries tingle the tongue with flavor as well with a backbone of malts with strong notes of dark breads, almost like cherry juice was mixed in with the dough of a multigrain bread having a dense texture and high grain content before baking.
Carbonation is moderate in a medium body, and a pretty deep one at that. From beginning to end, the feel is gently crisp and very creamy.

Can received in trade from MeadMe, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a slightly murky dark brown color with a smallish tan head that shows poor retention and spotty lace. Aromas of sweet brown sugar, spicy wheat, and an almost artificial cherry nose. Alcohol notes and light earth round out the nose here. The flavor is quite sweet and sugary with a solid bit of fruity cherry-ness. Light spice and a solid hit of alcohol fill us out. Thick body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet syrupy mouthfeel. I liked this beer, its a big thick sweet sipper, and I'm a sucker for cherries.
