Lots of complexity to this brew. Three predominant flavors to me are the cherry, vanilla and caramel. There's a mild oak and vinegar presence on the finish. The fact that this is 10.5% is mind blowing. No booze factor at all to me except for the aroma. Pretty inviting taste and one I enjoyed through out.

2010 bottling

Appearance: Just a smattering of foam raises above the coffee brown liquid; leggy, with a few dots here and there

Smell: Cherry jam, Oloroso Sherry, caramel, vanilla and a hint of oak

Taste: Sweet and tart dark cherry jam flavors, with a touch of Oloroso Sherry in the middle; caramel and vanilla flavors add sweetness, after the swallow, but are subsumed, to some extent, by the oak and vinegary sourness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with no carbonation

Overall: One of those unique style-bending fruit beers from Kuhnhenn; not really an Oud Bruin but I guess it comes closer to that style than any other

Poured a deep reddish brown, almost purple. Light carbonation with no head whatsoever. Smells more like a wine. The taste is tart, somewhat crisp, and refreshing. There is a very complex cherry profile. Overall, this was an awesome beer, and the alcohol (10.5%) was completely hidden. A little different from others in the style, but well worth trying if you can get it.
