Ppirs a dark amber with light brown carbonated head. Has a sweet malt and prune-like aroma. Starts out with some smooth and sweet malt and gets even sweeter with prune and spices. Lingering mix of your malt and prune aftertaste.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark reddish amber in color, small off white head, leaves lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruit (cherry), spices, some booze and some Belgian beer like notes in there too. Taste is sweet and fruity but you will feel the alcohol in there too. Very nice, very enjoyable beer.

Poured from bottle in a dark Carmel colour while introducing a sweet aroma into the air. This was only matched by its rich flavor of cherry. Better than most actual fruit beers.

Draft. This is not my kind of thing. Nice reddish color. I get cherries and some holiday spice in the nose but the maltyness of it gets in the way of the flavors to me. Just my opinion.

Pours a beautiful burnt caramel color. Is a little lacking in the head department, but has enough bubbles to dance across the tounge. Rich, ripe cherries rise up from the glass with the bready malts. Almost like cherry pie. There is a slight alcohol burn to the nose giving away the beer’s 11% character. Rich bread is the first thing on the sip with cherry following close behind. Again, there is slight alcohol bitterness on the sides of the tounge. Slightly sweet finish. Relatively well concieled 11% alcohol. Overall, a great beer to sip on a cold winter night.

Bottle, 2013 version. Warm and spicy. Tartness of the cherries comes thorugh. Some all spice, clove...sweetness but not too much. Rounded out by the malt. Good stuff.

ITs an oaky holiday ale. This one aged almost a year. Spices and fruits, malts coudl be richer despite the abv.
