Wellspent Brewing Mister Maraschino

"Inviting depth of aroma: coffee and chocolate, with wood-aged notes of leather, tobacco, cherry, oak, and vanilla. More notes of fig, raisin, molasses. Deep, fruity-roasty flavor—on par with the highest-quality, decadent, chocolate-cherry cordials. Extremely smooth drinkability. Savory chocolate. Rich, thick mouthfeel and pleasant warmth accentuate the sense of decadence. Cherry complements the sweetness and roast. Exquisitely balanced. Barrel vanilla notes deepen the complexity. Fairly sweet finish. Brilliant. Harmonious luxury. You’ll be unhappy when this beer is finished."
