Ruby red color with a pinkish white head. Cherry nose with lots of sugar sweetness. This is a sweet beer with a strong tart cherry flavor. Sweet/tart with some oak and vanilla under all that cherry. Better than I expected.

Bottle #2010 aged 2.5 years. Poured reddish brown with a quickly dissipating light tan head. Sour cherry and spice aromas. As the light bubbles mingle, huge natural cherry taste with hints of oak. Very mellow. Glad I saved this thru my cancer treatments.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of dusty wood, iron, and cherry. Pours dirty brown red with a big thick pink head. Taste is okay with black cherry, oaky funk, and slight ginger. Very off putting. The oak is distracting. I poured it.
