UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 13th March 2010
Opaque very dark brown beer. No head. Low carbonation. Slightly dry palate. Rich oak - not sweet. Dark malt with a little lactose sweetness. Repressed cherry and dark chocolate. Nice beer but not what I was expecting - hoping for something more luxuriant and oaky. 3.5

THE Others tasting. Dark red brown beer, residual tan head. Palate is smooth and soft. A little wood. Sweet caramel malt and a little chocolate. The cherry is fairly well buried. Soft finish with mild hop bitterness and a warming afterglow.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown color, almost black. Mature malt and caramel aroma, oxidised, deep, characteristic of Hair of the Dog, with very light fruitness and light smoke touch too; woody. Good body strength, rich caramel and chocolate flavor, quite sweet; a light sourness (from the cherries?) is a good complement for it, and the very light vanilla too. The final is a bit more astringent, very dry in the end. Maybe not a beer for everyday, but interesting anyway, and surely complex.
