Cherries are present throughout, jousting in a slightly medicinal way with chocolate in the aroma and taking over the sour, smoky finish. Beautiful to look at, with mounds of burgundy-red foam that calmly subsides. This was a fresh bottle, consumed about two months after the bottling date in November 2015.

MarcoDL (3631) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of PotjeBier. Aroma of roasted malt, mild cherry and sweet chocolate. Taste has mild smooth cherry, choco, mild roast and some subtle tart that could be from the cherry core. Nice one.

caesar (6301) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle thanks to Potjebier, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of lots of roast, dark bread, some coffee and dark chocolate, not much cherry, maybe some cherry pits. In taste roasty bitterness, dark bread, coffee. Bit dry. Slight fruity cherry. I expected a bit more cherry, got lots of roast in return. Tasty though.

Bottle dated 10/8/13. Pours dark brown with a reddish tint and a beige head. Aroma is oak, chocolate, cherry. This s is too old. It’s thin, but the flavors of chocolate and cherry are still there. I know the s could be better, but it’s not bad. Someone please send me a freshy so I can rerate.
