Merci Marc-Andr pour le partage de cette bouteille pour laquelle nous avons travaill fort! Beau liquide qui me parat prsenter des reflets rouges. Est-ce une simple illusion attribuable ma grande hte de dguster ce mythique produit? Peu de mousse, beaucoup dattentes. La cerise se fait discrte au nez et a me plat. Jeus t trs drang par une abondance de cerises trop sucres ou trop acidifiantes. Il nen est rien ici. La cerise est perceptible mais demeure trs en retrait. Toute la place est laisse la chaleur de ce stout et Pre Rye. Une pointe de ce fruit en arrire-scne me plat toutefois beaucoup. Le liquide me ravit cependant moins en bouche. Non pas que la cerise soit mal intgre au produit, mais je la trouve lourde et fatiguante. Trop de sucre rsiduel. La cerise me semble tout coup sirupeuse et mme artificielle. Je crois que cest trop. Le vieillissement en ft de Rye apporte toutefois une note pice qui attnue leffet confitur de la cerise, mais je peine imaginer affronter un verre de plus de 3 onces de cette bire.

going from memory. Bottle in July. Not as much Cherry as i was hoping based on all the reviews, but definitely had the cherry flavor. base was classic with little head. Overall very good, but not worth what is trading for in my opinion.

On draft at Rare Day 2015. Smell is fruit and whiskey forward. Smells more like a plum than cherries but I digress... Dark brown pour with tan head. Flavor is well balanced between tart cherries and thick, creamy, chocolatey stout. This is delicious.
