Served on tap at Upright Brew House and poured into a tulip glass. Pours a dark brown to nearly purplish color with no head. Smells are of coffee, nuts, chocolate and roasted malts. Carbonation is light with a full body. Taste is sweet, like the regular Biscotti Break but not as sugary. The chocolate and coffee are evident, and add to some bitterness in the beer. The sour cherry is very faint, though it is there during the taste. The aftertaste is where it shines through and stays on the tip of your tongue.
Overall a solid beer. I have a bottle that I have been aging for about 9 months and plan on holding onto it for another 6 months or so. Will be curious to see the differences in the aging process (and will certainly document it here!) As a refresher, here is the link to the original Biscotti Break review from last year. I don't rate this one as highly but still quite good.
