Backlog. Deep purple, viscous pour. Sweet honey with loads of concentrated raspberries and cherries. Super fruity with a big kick of vanilla. Super intense with a long, lingering, warming, boozy finish. So close to perfection. --- Beer merged from original tick of Grand Cru Berry on 02 Sep 2016 at 14:26 - Score: Appearance - 10 | Aroma - 9 | Flavor - 10 | Texture - 10 | Overall - 9.5.
