2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark mahogany with fair, creamy tan head / Light to medium body, watery, with weak finish / Mild nose of roast barley and cherries / Very weak flavors of roast barley, chocolate, and cherries / I’ve had several now. This is not a good brewery.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of funk, acetic acid, tartness, and a hint of roasted malts. Poured very dark brown/black in color with a large, tan head that lasted throughout. Opaque. Very sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sour. Tastes of tart fruit, funk, light roasted malts, and a very slight hint of cherry. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Lively carbonation. Tart, funk finish. More of a sour than a fruit beer or a stout.

Could be better. Some cherry and malt flavor. It gushed from the bottled infected. This wasn’t an old beer, so I have to blame the brewery for that.

Served from a 12 oz bottle picked up an our trip through M!ch!g@n. Pours a red toned brown with a thin brown head. Nose is faint cherry concentrate and faint roasted malt. Flavors are fake cherry concentrate with no sweetness. Sorry but not a good beer.

bottle: pours dark mahogany with huge beige head. Arouma is musty, fruity and sweet. Taste is sweet and sour, fruity and hint of chocolate. Too much carbonation and not very well balanced. Not a big fan of this one.

This was just awful. The cherries were very artificial and overly sweet. Little other flavor was present. Blah.
