500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of cherries, dark malts, tartness, light oak and bourbon and vanilla notes, some light sweetness, and more dark fruits. Flavor the same with a very unique blend of everything. Average texture. A very interesting beer, but might have too much going on.
