Draft from notes during holiday season 2008. Pours deep burnt sienna with off-khaki head. Nose is caramel, brown sugar, figgy fruit. Tastes very malty, with some x-mas spice, blackberry, cherry, and tart hops late. Solid complexity. A tiny bit hot late, but very complex.

On tap at the brewpub. 12oz pour. Noses in a really strong brash, pink-pepper heavy nose. Phenolic and near rubbery. Not my favorite yeast profile. It’s got that slightly sickly Otto’s Belgian twinge. Pours a murky red-red-brown, with a soft creamy hickory head. Flavor is interesting. Sweet. A bit of spice, lots of the Otto’s yeast and then a twang of sour cherry juice. Simple and not well unified. Alcohol is present, heavily. This just doesn’t meld well. All the dimensions fight with each other, the overbearing yeast phenols, the sour cherries, and the alcohol. Age and some wood might help, but this is a bit burly in this form. Sweet. A continuation of my general distaste for Otto’s belgians.

Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a very dark brown color with a large brown head. The aroma was fruity and tart with notes of caramel underneath. The flavor was tart and fruity with notes of caramel and a long bitter and fruity finish. The alcohol shows through a bit. Interesting.
