750mL from the brewery via cavemanlawyer
A: Red clay color with a very foamy creme head. Has some sticky legs and looks alright.
N: Sour cherries over a malty base. I get a hint of bittersweet chocolate, but the cherry is mostly overpowering everything else in this bottle. There’s a hint of leather, some caramel and toffee, and some of the Belgian ester.s.
T: Baker’s chocolate bitterness and a hint of tartness. Sweetness spreads around the tongue, but it’s a third player. Yeast shows throughout.
M: Chalky with a sharply carbonated and medium mouthfeel. Alcohol shows briefly.
O: Reminds me a lot of Three Philosophers, a beer of which I’m not a fan. This isn’t as complex, bready or yeasty as I want. Needs more density.

On draught at Saraveza for My Beery Valentine 2013. Surprisingly understated flavor, but there is a lot going on: raspberry, cocoa, and a hint of bourbon.

25-JAN-2012, bottle @Papsø tasting, @Yespr.
Red’ish with lasting tan head.
Sour cherry aroma with wood and red wine.
Taste is sour cherry with brett, wood, red wine, fruits.
Overcarbonated - that takes away some of the flavors. Fruity and tart more than a Belgian Strong Ale.
Dry finish. 10% ABV cannot be detected.

Bottle. Pours murky red-brown with a somewhat lasting small beige head. Aroma is cherries, vinegar, marzipan, wood, overripe fruit, caramel malt, earthy, brett. Taste is medium sweet and light tart. Body is medium, carbonation is average+. Finishes berry sweet and warming. Too sweet for me.
