Intense aromas of dark cherry, caramel candy, allspice, and blackstrap molasses play on the nose and deftly hide the beer’s formidable alcohol content. Rich and silky on the palate, this blended beer offers chocolate-covered cherry, ginger snap, treacle, and maple syrup flavors punctuated by wood tannins, soft carbonation, and a gentle alcohol warmth.
