    Pours cloudy with a ruby red brown color with a big fluffy tan head. Lots of yeast sediment floating around after the pour. The head settles out leaving a quarter inch of foam resting on top. Spotty lacing.

    The aroma is a blend of cherries and sweet malts. Caramel and toffee. The cherries have a tart scent. A very nice aroma.

    The taste is very similar to the aroma. Tart cherries blend with a malty sweetness with caramel and toffee adding extra rich flavors. Some Belgium yeast is noticeable near the finish with a big warmth from the higher abv showing up in the finish and after taste.

    Medium body with medium carbonation. Creamy and smooth with a sticky sweetness on the palate.

    Overall, a very impressive beer. Great flavors and awesome balance. Very rich and full. A great cold night beer! This one should be on your must try list! Try one!
