2012 bottle, poured into a snifter...

A: Pours a super deep and dark red. It's basically a brown/black. There is a thin ring of tiny light beige bubbles along the edges of the glass that seem to stick around for a bit. Decent lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is a mix of sweet caramel malt, dark cherries, and a touch of smoke. It's actually kind of difficult to pick out the exact scents in this beer. I get a touch of sour and some alcohol heat.

T: Hmmm. This is going to be a tough one. It starts out with a mix of malty sweet, a touch of tart, and followed by some underlying smoke. I get caramel and black sherries to start, as soon as it hits my palate. After it sits for a second, the smoke begins to turn up. It starts out small and builds until the palate it pure smoke. And yet, as soon as that happens, the sour cherries and sweet malt come right back. It finishes with a mix of all of those flavors and a good helping of booze.

M: Full bodied beer. It's sweet and coating to start, effervesces and gets stinging, but softens out in the back end. It's sticky and syrupy in the finish/ My mouth is completely coated by this beer even after it is gone. The mix of tart, smoke, and alcohol are destroying my tastebuds.

O: Wow. This is quite a beer. It seems so incredibly complicated. Flavors showing and then disappearing a second later. Flavors that shine, fade, and then shine again. Sweet, tart, smokey, and intense. I kinda like it, but I don't know if I'm fully enjoying this beer. I might not drink this beer again, but it's quite an experience.

Lovely beer. A little sweet overall, if anything for me the sweetness does take away other possible elements. The look is off putting (muddy water), however, that could be to my poor handling, there is a huge amount of trub in the bottom of the bottle. Whilst this isn't a problem for me, as I'm more interested in taste, I'm sure some people will be put off.

Overall exceptional and well worth looking out.
