Really deep red with a nice, full beige head and substantial lacing. Raspberry and cherry notes against a wheaty, floral background. Lots more fruit on the tongue, with a full, expressive mild chocolate background. Just a hint of sour and a striking bitter finish. Reminds me of cherry cordials.

nearbeer (5090) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 18, 2008
330 ml, bb 09 02 09. Dark brown with red highlights. Five finger, creamy and lasting head. Aroma is spicy cocoa, tart cherries, and slight molasses. Nice malty-yeasty flavor blend of cocoa, molasses, leather, charred wood, and sour-acidic cherry. Medium body is dry, and very acidic-tingly, yet smooth at the same time. A great Belgian yeast stylized take on the stout genre.

11.2 oz bottle Label has a man laughing and holding a glass of beer. Pours a nice head that falls into a thin layer and a nice lacing. Smell is very nice: dark, coffee flavors and dark fruit undertones with some spicyness. Taste is very smooth and refreshing, it doesnt have the hard coffee flavors of a regular stout, but it has different flavors of nutmeg and dark fruit tones that are very good. It also has a strong pepper flavor due the higher alcohol content. Mouthfeel is very enjoyable and smooth. It floats down my throat very nicely. I really enjoyed this stout and without a doubt will have another one.
