From bottle dated 2009. A true surprise..a pleasant one at that. Label says good through 2025. Flat...flat...flat are the only words for the looks, but, if you can get past that, your golden.

This is a great example of capturing the essense of a very distinguished taste.

Having just been given a few jars of brandied cherries, which I really enjoyed, this is an extra special treat. They had some lovely mulled wine type spices to add to the party, but this "dark ale" "brown ale" brew has really brought the cherry-ness to the fore.

Looks like cranberry juice in the glass, but the flavor is anything but ordinary. I suggest recruiting help before tackling this. A little goes a long way.

Wonderous w/cheese.

Tried this hot and cold, different flavors and aromas. The beer initially pours a red color with a short lived white head. The aroma is extremely fruity full of dark cherry and a bit of spice. Heated, it smells like mulled cherry wine. The flavors are full on overripe cherry, faint tartness, and light dryness. The heated version exhibited more spice, balanced fruitiness and notes of wine. Body is invariable from medium fresh pour to lighter once heated. Overall, a fine drinking experience. Better heated honestly try it

Slow start as its fairly ordinary looking, no head, no lace, no distinguishing feature beyond being a very handsome ruby colour.

After that it's all about the cherries. Great cherry nose, great cherry taste. Spicy, fruity, malty - lots of good things happening. Comes across a bit like a liqueur without being quite as boozy or sweet. Sweetness nicely offset by a hint of sourness. Interesting and enjoyable to drink. Big alcohol can sneak up on you.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a wine glass.

A: Medium brown. No real head. No lacing.

S: Cherry cobbler.

T: Lightly sweet and lightly sour balance of cherry.

M: Syrupy body, lightly sour and bitter finish.

D: Savor.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Not much to look at, but heavy bouquet of cherry. Like it smells... sweet and sour cherry. Overall, this is a good quaff.
