From Bend Brewing – This Imperial Porter was aged with montmorency cherries to create a beer rich enough to be served as dessert. Its aroma is a complex combination of alcohol,dried fruits, and milk chocolate. Its flavor is reminiscent of a chocolate covered cherry cordial. It ends with a cherry tartness laced with cinnamon graham cracker spiciness. Enjoy!
