Brewed for Ecliptic's 3rd anniversary. They combined 7 types of malts to give this beer a rick black color. Flavors of cocoa and slight coffee blend with Columbus, Amarillo and Cascade hops which lend a slight citrus hop character. 22 pounds of cherries per barrel are used and these meld in with the malt character for a balanced and slightly sweet flavor. This beer was designed for aging.
