This dark chestnut brew has a nice caramel malt character, a tart cherry fruitiness that carries throughout, and a nice warming finish. As with all of our Brewers’ Select beers, Tango is available in draft at awesome Weyerbacher-supporting bars and restaurants and is made available in 12oz bottles at Weyerbacher’s Visitors Center only. This is a once and done limited release. Tango is the letter “T” in the NATO / phonetic alphabet. Belgian-Style Dark Ale brewed with cherries 9.6% ABV, 21IBU

Bouteille de 750ml. Une robe rouge orangée très foncée. Une mousse beige épaisse mais qui disparait rapidement, dommage. Un nez épicé de levure belge avec des notes légères de cerises. Une bouche qui rapelle la Maudite avec des épices, phenols belges et des cerises en final. Agréable.

Pours a dark brown with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and some fruit. Flavor is slightly tart cherry and sweet Belgian yeast. The cherries are barely prominent, but that’s probably a good thing. Overall pretty good.

Too rich for the taste/aroma. I understand the high ABV brews...but want cleaner flavors, less body, with my brews.

Appearing grapefruit red, off white lace. Smell is chocolate, toffee, cola cherry, banana. Taste is bitter and sour cherry. Very astringent, fruity sweet and tart/earthy. Lots of cherries. Sweetness notes are paired well with the high alcohol content.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2015 Not a very pleasant experience. When i find a beer that states it is brewed with an added ingredient, such as cherries, I expect that ingredient to be somewhat featured. I struggled to find a significant amount of tart cherries here. Found the overall experience to be rather abrasive and offensive.

Pours brown, with thick, frothy head and substantial lacing. Sweet, fruit aromas. Tart taste, characteristic of dark fruit, plenty of caramel and sweet malts. Creamy mouthfeel. An oddly sweet dark ale.

Beerman6686 (4999) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2015
This poured a medium brown with a small beige head. Aroma was of.chocolate, far fruits, Belgian yeast and light toasted malt. Flavor was very nice balance and yeasty Belgian character, dark chocolate covered cherries and other dark fruits.

Bottle from rare beer club subscription. Fruity earthy aromas with some grassy notes. Thin off white head. Muddy off brown hazy color. Dry caramel cola mild tart cherry taste. Long finish. Ok beer but nothing amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JDBaker11058 (1428) - Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Appearance: deep brown, slightly cloudy, creamy tan head that quickly shrinks. Aroma: prominent maraschino cherries, candi sugar, light molasses and brown sugar, Belgian yeast, a bit of leather and pipe tobacco. Taste: as the aroma indicated. Finish: smooth and slightly yeasty, with a lasting, slightly medicinal cherry kick. Notes: Generally a fine Belgian dark ale, with reasonably hidden alcohol. Cherry notes were slightly syrupy and just a tad medicinal, but was happy to try another creative offering from these guys. Bottle from Sarah for Beerdvent 2014, with another bottle from the Rare Beer Club.
