Murky, caramel brown with a decent inital foam head that rises to the top of the tulip glass -- yeast dregs spin darker colours into the head. Medicinal, grassy, just a touch, with liquor soaked sweet cherries, hint of chocoloate. Bone dry, soft mealy mouthfeel. Alcohol is high, but very hidden, very spooky, lending a nice spicy character to the flavour and blending with a chocolate malt flavour (brownie-like). Soft cherry flavours. Sweet caramel, bready flavour holds things up. Hops are grassy, but not overpowering. Alcohol comes back for a second haunt, this time warming the gullet and head. Mineral towards the finish with dry baked chocolate residuals, some spice and faded esters.
