We throw seventy-five pounds of tart Door County cherries into each oak barrel with a rich Imperial Stout and then age it for six month to create this savory delight. Cheers

Huge thanks to hoppymeal for getting this one off my wants list. Pours dark red-brown with an off-white head. Nose is bourbon, booze, cherry, vanilla, tartness, and some roasty malt. Flavor is roasted malts, cherry tartness, vanilla, booze, bourbon, and sweetness. Medium-bodied and very enjoyable.Not as bourbony as Bell’s BB Cherry, and not as tart as a regular cherry stout. Very nice, interesting beer.

Joint bottle with Martinus. Obtained in a trade with sfr26. Thx! 1/3 of a 355 ml. bottle. Very dark brown. Nose is seriously tart cherry, giving it a vinous feel, candy, sugar, bourbon, oak, chocolate,… Taste is tart cherry mixed with bourbon lightly vinous with oak, chocolate, bourbon, warming, rich, lower carbonation, very interesting & enjoyable. Lower carbonation. Light sour finish. JorisPPattyn makes a comparison to Mon Chérie in his review, I can see that. Interesting & quite lovely.

JorisPPattyn (8573) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2015
Small cream-coloured head over deepbrown to Armenian brandy-coloured beer. Red fruit, alcohol, Bourbon, vanilla, fusels - superb. Vanilla, cherries, lightly sourish, chocolate as in finest pralines, with cherry - Mon Chérie in a squared way. Sourish, acidity just alleviating the monstrous body, alcoholeheat². This brewery is utterly amazing. Many thanks to Eugene and Tinus for sharing!

MrHangover (3309) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle @ THT July, courtesy of me!! Pours an inky black beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma of cherries, bourbon, thick chocolate, red fruits and loads of woody notes. Great aroma. Flavor is very sweet with loads of bourbon, booze and cherries in there. A bit tart in the aftertaste makes it refreshing every sip. Very well balanced with an interesting combination of ingredients! Nice!
