Pours a deep brown color with a ripened cherry aroma. Taste is sweet and over ripened fruit in flavor. Distinct dark cherry, and prunes with every sip. Clean and crisp with a slight vanilla tinge in the taste. the alcohol content is well hidden making the beer easy drinking for the percentage of alcohol.
