The beer in this bottle was brewed in 2005.

A crimson liquid pours into my Chimay chalice. About a quarter inch of foam quickly settles to a ring with some activity in the center.

A wonderful combination of tart cherries and bread are the first notes I can detect. Then I get the spicy yeast with dark fruits. Clove, a bit of cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins, and a touch of alcohol is my attempt to make my description a little more detailed.

The taste is very similar to the nose of this beer. Cherries soaked in alcohol, heavy bread, spices, and dark fruits. As I continue sipping this beer it reminds me of the strawberry-walnut bread I make sometimes (it’s good by the way).

Heavily carbonated and a little sharp on the tongue. There is also a touch of alcohol that hangs around for a while in the back of the throat. After the beer warms up a bit the mouthfeel is a little better but I still think it’s a tad over-carbonated. Actually, now that the beer is at room temp. the mouthfeel has improved.
