look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a dark reddish brown in color with some ruby red highlights and light to moderate amounts of visibel carbonation when held up to the light. The beer has a half finger tall medium creamy tan head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of dark fruits (raisins and cherries) along with some spices. The smell intensifies as the beer warms and the presence of the alcohol can be observed at that point.

T: The flavor is similar to the smell but with a very strong sweet malt body. There is a heavy presence of dark fruits (raisin) as well as a strong amount of cherry flavors. Some light notes of spices can be detected as well. Unique flavor combination.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

O: This is a really enjoyable beer and was probably my first introduction to the style - I still really enjoy the addition of the cherries. A wonderful sipping beer but this one will sneak up on you.
