Bottle poured a brown ruby in color with no head at all. Aroma has cherry (like the filling in those boozy cherry chocolates), chocolate, sweetness, and some hints of sherry. Mouth feel is medium light with some heat. Flavor is punchy on the cherry, big time sweet, chocolate, bits of the peppers, and cherry skins. I enjoyed this over two nights because it is so desert like and thought the second nights pour had improved.

Bouteille 375ml via trade, huge cheers to Sarro for hauling it to Belgium Thanks Kyle! Couleur rougeâtre-acajou, doré au verre sur un filament huileux. Arôme est exceptionnel et complexe. Le tout se développe sur plusieurs heures. En premier, je note surtout cette impressiond echipotle, ensuite un côté chocolat au lait et ponctué par unf ruité cerise renforcé. Le tout sur une douceur mielleuse. Cette cerise tend à prendr eun peu le dessus et au niveau des effluves on alterne chalaeur, fruité, chocolat et miel. Palais est similaire. Complexe avec une chaleur des chipotle qui augmente avec la t° ambiante du verre sans jamais tomber dans le surfait. A ce point, tout se complémente avec le côté chocolat ai lait qui donne son sens aux piments mais aussi à la cerise. La barrique de NewHolland, sans y donner un côté bière, donne le ton avec le côté lactose. La cerise donne ce profil légèrement suret et c’est sur toutes ses composantes que les saveurs entrechoquement pendant fort longtemps. J’avoue avoir déguster un simple verre pendant 2-3 heures et c’est intéressant de voir comment le tout évolué avec le temps alternant entre doux, suret, boisé et fruité. Au final, le profil mielleux reste en retrait et donne juste l’onctuosité douce de l’hydromel.
