Bottle shared by dicks in some beerz. Pours a hazy bruin body with an off white head with okay pillow retention. Birch and root beer like spices, odd yeast tones. Chocolate and caramel notes, brown sugar in the raw, cherry chewy caramel and toffee notes. Nutty chewy palate with a hint of coffee. Interesting brew its really a portfolio of spices and malts.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Beer Run. It pours a somewhat cloud, reddish brown color with a nice sized tan head. The nose is a bit tangy with notes of cherry, cocoa powder, some vinousness, leather, and horse blanket. Intriguing. The flavor is a nice mix of malt and sour characteristics. The lightly sour cherries are there with a nice touch of chocolate, a bit of grape vine, roasted malt, and leather. Rather tasty I must say. Medium bodied with above average carbonation leading to a medium, layered finish. I really enjoyed this brew and would love to try it again.

3.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated 2/3/2010 (Bottle): Pours a very dark brown color body, with a huge foamy head, very lasting, good lacing, dark tan in color. Strong funky sour aroma, some sweetness too. Dark fruit and cherries. Some wild notes too. Not super strong though. Roasted taste, watery, porter-like. Some fruitiness, but very muted. Some funkiness. Sour. Letting warm a bit. Chocolate notes. Not as good with spicy kung pao.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma:Sour cherries and acrid harshness.
Appearance:Brown and opaque. Nice tan head with amazing retention.
Taste:The foretaste of this one is a bright sour cherry flavor. In the midtaste, there are some metallic off flavors. This persists through the aftertaste. After a few sips, this off flavor fades a bit, but not completely.
Palate:Medium body with lots of sour astringency.
Overall:This is a good sour cherry Belgian beer, although I’m not sure spending a year in my cellar improved it at all.

(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Murky copper pour with a thick tan head. Sweet and tart aroma. Definitely get a lot of cherry and cocoa notes with some dark and earthy hints near the end. Sweet chocolate and spice starts the flavor with a beautiful cherry middle and a light chocolate and yeast finish. Tons of different fruits but not as tart as I thought. Smooth.
