This has at least a year and a half age on it
Puts a dark cherry brown with a creamy circle of foam. There's an incredible nose on this, evident from the moment I opened the bottle down to the final sip. It's a big warming aroma of sour cherry and dark chocolate, hints of oak and an whisper of tobacco, with a pleasing tartness to it. Tastes great, with some more dark cherry and oak, chocolate and a faint orange peel, tapering into a mouth-puckering flat, drying bitter/tartness.
