Firkin at The Bruery. Mild roastyness with tartness of the cherries coming through. This version of Brown Creeper is less roasty and bitter at the end. The cherries are a nice addition.

Pours brown in color with a small soapy head. The cherries definitely comes through. Mild roast, a hint of tartness, light chocolate, maybe a little vanilla. Really nice nose. The flavor isn't quite as good. Light chalky and earthiness, some roast, not as much cherry. Dark chocolate, mild coffee, and light bitterness. Flavor is alright, but the nose is quite nice.
