What the brewers say

“The perfect beer for folks who love malty beers and are ready to take the next step. A layered beer with hints of dark cherries, currants, and molasses, complemented by an underlying spici- ness. Sinfully smooth.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lots of fruit at the front, with hints of red apple, cherry, and raisin. Bready, toasty malt sweetness is just a bit behind the fruit, with subtle caramel notes and some black pepper phenols.”

Flavor: “Rich blend of bready malt and the fruity sweetness of cherry, apple, and pear. Alcohol and carbonation are well integrated with a creamy mouthfeel throughout. Some earthy spice adds to this beer. Solid body to balance out the high carbonation and a slight alcohol warming toward the end of the sip. Well-balanced, clean finish, leaning a bit on the sweeter side, but enough bitterness to keep it in check.”

Overall: “A great example with the high points being a very nice fruity ester character balanced by enough malt sweetness and bitterness to keep it from being over the top. Well blended, rich, complex, and easy drinking.”
