COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Petrus Aged Red is constructed from a base of Double Brown Ale. 15% Petrus Aged Pale is added to provide a dry character to the brew and give it a slight sour essence. Finally the brewer adds fresh cherries, which are evident in the rich thick head. Petrus Aged Red is a perfect blend of sweet and sour with a cherry undertone which makes this brew remarkably drinkable at 8.5% ABV.

Draft at Trinity Brass Tap. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a small off white head. Aroma is mostly cherry with a slight bit of malt. Flavor starts out with cherry sweetness that finishes with a fair amount of tartness. Not as sour as I hoped. I prefer their Our Bruins and Aged Pale more.

Not a big fan of sours in general, but this full bodied, high ABV brew is more on the sweet side and very fruity. Enjoyable for one, probably that’s enough.

What an aroma. Just like a dark chocolate cherry cordial. Has a similar sugary sweetness. If they labeled this a cherry cordial beer, if would be aptly named.

Oscbert (1149) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Sweet maraschino cherry aroma with caramel candy, bread, raisin, spice. Pours a dark garnet red color that is see through with small bubbly white head Sweet syrupy cherry flavor with light spice and subtle sourness. Medium sticky bodied, medium co2, lingering sugary sweetness that sticks to palette. Half a bottle is enough for me. Too sweet for my taste. I wouldn't turn it down if offered but wouldn't be able to drink very much. Like liquid candy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mmahut (1488) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours in dark red-amber body with low almost none head. Aroma has strong cherry character, burned sugar notes, woody. Taste has overwhelming sweet cherry sweetness, almost like ripped sour cherries, little bit artificial on the taste. If this is coming only from fresh cherries, it is really strong. Little bit evident alcohol in the after taste. Body is full, medium to high carbonation, oily.

guzgorog (461) - FRANCE - JUL 12, 2015
Belle couleur rubis, mousse moyenne. Nez de cerise griotte. En buche, cerise et bois, sucree. Corps moelleux, tres belle rondeur et equilibre, acide. A priori issue d’un blend entre kriek et brune forte (d’ou le degré alcoolique), mais la cerise domine complètement (mais utilisation d’aromes, c’est pas classe...)
