3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 330 ml. Pours dark copper red. Gets clearer as we drink. Medium persistant beige head. Lacing. Aroma: nice aroma of sweet cherry, along with caramel, malt, and spice (cinnamon, muscad). Awesome taste also: strong hints of caramel and malt. Well balanced sweetness and some bitterness in the end. Alcohol well hidden. Full bodied, but not long lasting. Warming sensation. Not very familiar with the style, but I did enjoy this one for sure!

330ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Clear deep russet with reddish hues, nice off white head.
Soft nose, some bread, caramel malt, faint floral notes and light spices.
Sweet heavy malt flavor, with dark caramel and juicy ripe fruit. Low bitterness, mellow spices.
Full bodied, thick but surprisingly not cloying, somewhat alcoholic but OK.
